Standart isn't just about coffee's hip centre, it doesn't just pour over (sorry) latte art and avocados, it takes time to look at the industry and how it functions (and how it could function better). Inside issue #13 there are articles on climate change education, a country profile on Nicaragua, the importance of the music played in coffee shops and a catch up with the founder of Blue Bottle, James Freeman.
Standart is a beautifully published magazine that is here to introduce us to speciality coffee culture in all of its forms. From ethics to maker profiles, barista skills to city guides, there is something here for every fan of the brown stuff.
On bleakly cold days like this, it's always good to have a look at the coffee culture of sunnier places and in this issue it's Sydney, currently basking in 27º C.
