Standart Issue 12
Beautifully designed and curated content celebrating the culture of specialty coffee
Issue 12 takes you from the genome of coffee right to the very edges of the cosmos, with pit stops at the foundation of democracy, post-conflict Colombia, and the white sands of Hawaiian beaches.
The Coffee chapter looks at the future of sustainable coffee breeding, and what sustainability means for the supply chain.
The People chapter features an interview with Market Lane Coffee’s Fleur Studd and, fittingly, an article about the successes of exceptional women in the coffee industry. We round it out with a short story about interruptions during shift work and the first-known translation of a Brazilian poem about the intricacies of the coffee supply chain.
Finally, the World chapter takes us from a languid contemplation of the Athenian coffee and food scene to an exploration of the arts of tasseography and font design before delving into Colombia’s return to coffee after a lamentable detour into cocaine.
