Where coffee meets print

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, independent 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 thoughtful writing and beautiful design.

Every issue has 15 articles, stories, interviews or essays from some of the brightest minds in coffee, and beyond. With every issue, we take you around the globe, and through coffee-tinted spectacles, we explore the world.

Words, flowers, and coffee

In Standart issue 20, we explore the nascent rise of Indian specialty coffee from the source; interrogate the light-roast/dark-roast debate with one of the UK’s leading roasters; follow along as a researcher looks at the latest developments in agroforestry in Brazil; and read how an artist and florist who builds arrangements for global brands and the celebrity elite has to fight tooth-and-nail to make his café/florist business sustainable. 

In our long-form article, neuroscientist Fabiana Carvalho takes us through the very latest research on how colour literally changes the flavour of coffee.

All this and more!

What People Say

Timothy Schilling CEO of World Coffee Research

"Standart is highest end celebration of coffee as art, science and people. A masterpiece of quality journalism advancing the understanding of all things coffee."

Geoff Watts President of Intelligentsia Coffee

"A publication that dreams big and deftly blends artistry, intellect, and a love for coffee into a delicious mix of articles with generous spirit, relevant material, and just the right amount of seriousness."

Scott Rao Consultant, coffee professional

"Standart's success surprised me at first, as I had thought long-form print was dying. But it's gratifying to see coffee lovers embrace a magazine that dives deep, intelligently, into issues that matter to our industry."

Giada Biondi Communications Coordinator at La Marzocco

"Standart's ethos is to bring specialty coffee closer to the consumer while setting trends. We are proud to be a part of their mission."

"You’ll just as easily read a profile with a barista champion right after a piece exploring tasseography, the art of reading tea and coffee leaves. Content is at the forefront in Standart."

"Standart sets a new paradigm for our industry in that it's informative, focused, thorough, thoughtful, and gorgeous."

Jessica Godfrey International Marketing at Coffee Supreme

"The articles in Standart cover a wide range of topics pertinent to the industry. The production value of the magazine is excellent, including the layout, photography, and illustration."
