Standart love coffee for its ability to foster interesting conversations, chance meetings, and rich experiences. Quarterly published and print only, they dedicate more than 130 pages of beautifully designed and carefully curated content to the beauty of specialty coffee. Sit back, slow down, and enjoy the beauty of the offline world.
Every issue of Standart is beautifully designed and the content carefully curated in order to bring you into a one of a kind experience. It should be meaningful, enriching, and inspiring.
Issue 18 introduces an exciting new content structure that takes as its thematic centre a long-form essay ‘On Coffee and Criticism’ by the incredible Noa Berger—a social scientist working on coffee consumption.
The idea of critique, in its many forms, guides our newest release. From pieces that explore the role criticism plays in our everyday lives and how we can turn it into constructive fuel for improvement, to a critical exploration of how we define ‘premium’ in paying farmers a decent price for their work, to how Modernist writers Virginia Woolf and T. S. Eliot used coffee as a literary device to explore the fabric of consciousness.
