Subscriptions are shipped with a sample bag of speciality coffee from our favourite roasters. For issue 18 we partnered up with our friends at Santa Teresa farm in Panama. and Dutch Colony Coffee Roasters from Singapore. We'll ship the rarest Gesha coffees we've ever had.
Issue 18 introduces an exciting new content structure that takes as its thematic centre a long-form essay ‘On Coffee and Criticism’ by the incredible Noa Berger—a social scientist working on coffee consumption.
The idea of critique, in its many forms, guides our newest release. From pieces that explore the role criticism plays in our everyday lives and how we can turn it into constructive fuel for improvement, to a critical exploration of how we define ‘premium’ in paying farmers a decent price for their work, to how Modernist writers Virginia Woolf and T. S. Eliot used coffee as a literary device to explore the fabric of consciousness.
