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). Issue #17 introduces us to cupping without bias, predicts the weather's effects on coffee yields, discusses Orientalism in coffee and meets with the 2019 barista champion Paul ross.
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.
