Frequently Asked Questions

Why print? Is there a digital version of content?

Well, we think there is too much digital noise out there. 

We believe good content is worth sitting down for and engaging with, on multiple levels. Print, for us, is the best way to represent the incredible work of our contributors through a beautiful aesthetic. We do love digital too, but as a separate experience and a platform for discussion and canvassing opinions from other members of our vibrant community. We created Standart Community, an online tool to discuss, find and share information about all things coffee—techniques, recipes, equipment, running a coffee business, there is always a member of Standart community who will be able to help! Standart Community also features a guidebook that will keep an extensive coffee knowledge base right at your fingertips. Oh, and not to forget—our partners provide our readers with exclusive discounts on coffee and brewing equipment!

How can I buy the magazine? Can I buy a single copy without starting a subscription?

The only way to become Standart reader is through a subscription, acquired through our website. All subscriptions include a coffee sample from some of the best roasters and farmers in the world.
