Standart Magazine Issue 22 - Napkins, Glitter And Coffee

Standart is an award-winning print magazine dedicated to the beauty of coffee. It's print only, published once a quarter and every issue is ram-packed with stories of some of the brightest minds in the world of coffee.

Awarded in 2017, 2018 and 2019 Best Coffee Magazine, Standart is a well-curated, independent print publication that started with a simple goal in mind: to celebrate the culture of specialty coffee through a marriage of thoughtful writing and beautiful design.

Issue 22:

Standart Issue 22 enjoys an undeniable theme of animals. In these isolating times, people perhaps more than ever have turned to pets to satisfy many of the social joys usually inspired by interactions with friends, family, colleagues, and their fellow citizens.

We start by asking a few burning questions about that most controversial of creature-related coffee, kopi luwak. Can it be ethical? Does it taste any good, anyway? Can science provide an alternative? Then, Scott Rao continues in the spirit of science by taking us through the finer points of pulling a proper allongé.

Everyone's heard the story about Kaldi and his goats discovering coffee, but you may not have heard it told like this before; follow the herd of crazed goats on a chuckle-filled romp across the plains of Ethiopia and the Arabian peninsula.

We ask one of the UK's top dairies, producing milk specifically for the specialty coffee sector, about ethical production, methane emissions, alternative milks, and the future of global food security. In Japan, we follow passion’s path to coffee with Kenji Kojima of Fuglen Tokyo, and discover how farmers are producing small lots of specialty in Typhoon-threatened Japanese islands.

Then, the theme is in the name: we interview the founder and Chief Glitter Officer Veronica P. Grimm, about inclusivity, getting it wrong before you can get it right, and the future of coffee competitions.

In this issue's long-form article, learn about the history of cat cafés and what their popularity can tell us about the way we live in the city. Speaking of, in this issue's city profile, we survey Lima, from it's caffeinated past to what the contemporary coffee scene offers the specialty connoisseur.

Enjoy with a cup of fresh brew!

A home-brewed quality coffee is far less expensive than cafes

...Whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a better quality home-brewed coffee or tea is still far less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Over the last few years, many have taken the opportunity to improve their home brewing skills, and now with the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home, are enjoying cheaper quality coffees. With cafe coffees costing anything from £2.50-4.00 each, and with a bag of 250g quality coffee costing between £7.00-12.50 and providing you with enough to achieve up to 15-35 brews per bag (depending on brew method and strength preferences), the savings and better quality coffee are both there to be enjoyed.

If this isn't you, there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our huge range of quality independent roasters and brands from across UK, Europe and North America to support you in doing just that. With it easy to browse and shop for coffee on the marketplace or subscribe to a coffee subscription, it also won't be long until you discover a new favourite. All marketplace purchases are shipped direct for product freshness, with all subscriptions roasted fresh for us as part of our monthly delivery schedules.
