Must-read for coffee lovers
Standart began with the idea that good coffee should be accessible to everyone.
Awarded 2017, 2018 and 2019 Best Coffee Magazine, Standart is a well-curated, quarterly print publication that explores the beauty and diversity of coffee culture. It started with a simple goal in mind: to celebrate the culture of specialty coffee through a marriage of great writing and beautiful design.
Every issue has 144 pages printed on high-quality FSC-certified paper with 15 articles, stories, interviews or essays from some of the brightest minds in coffee, and beyond
Issue 25: Arabesque, alkalinity, and coffee
In the new Standart Issue 25, When you’re in the need of an injection of well-founded coffee facts with your espresso, Scott Rao’s your man. In the new issue, @whereisscottrao takes us through water alkalinity, how to test it, and how a little knowledge could save you a lot of money. We interview Joachim Morceau of @substancecafe, his café in Paris, about terroir, competition success, and ‘trafficked’ coffee and what it means for the industry and inspiration.
We take a closer look at Uganda, its history and culture, and, of course, is coffee, and ask whether the concepts of hygge and fika can really be exported the world over while retaining their meaning.
In a collaborative photo-essay, we ask exactly how two cafés on different sides of the world react to the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, and in this issue’s long-form essay, Ashley Rodriguez of @bossbaristapodcast asks whether the application of sortition principles hold egalitarian promise for the coffee supply chain.
We also spoke with Ashley Dean of the Royal Ballet in London about managing insane schedules, getting plenty of rest, and the dreaded foam roller. And speaking of, ahem, cylindrical objects, what’s the relationship between caffeine and erections? That’s right—we went there.
To round it all out, join us on a journey into the mind of Rahul Reddy of @subkocoffee, who’s trying to spread a distinctively Asian specialty coffee experience in Mumbai, followed by a coffee-fuelled wander around the ancient western Ukrainian city, Lviv.
