Drift is a new print magazine devoted to coffee culture

Each issue takes us to a different city across the globe, as our writers and photographers dive into what makes a city’s coffee scene tick. Our second issue takes us to Tokyo, as we soak in the serenity and trace the legacy of the classic kissaten, get cozy at cosplay cafes, and meet power players behind one of the world’s most competitive coffee scenes. Volume 2 is about Tokyo past and present, a city as dynamic as the coffee it offers.

Coffee sits in the background of some of the most important moments in our lives: the first time we told new friends we’d like to get to know them better, a second date, a business meeting, a passion project completed, a time we caught up with long-lost loved ones after years apart. More than anything else, coffee is tied to a sense of place and a sense of community.

Drift is about coffee, the people who drink it, and the cities they inhabit. Our collection of writers and photographers, alongside coffee shop owners, baristas, streetcart vendors, and patrons, capture a glimpse of what it’s like to drink coffee in a city at the time the magazine is printed. Each issue highlights a different city.

It’s about wandering the streets aimlessly, cup of coffee in hand, and learning more about what a place has to offer, whether you’ve been there for 25 minutes or 25 years. Coffee helps us chart the geography of our cities. It’s about seeing those cities with fresh eyes, as visitors or long-time residents, and trying to understand what makes them tick.

A propos de ce numéro

Volume 3 - Havana

This issue contains stories about Havana, its coffee, and the people who drink it. For our third issue, we hear from dozens of locals, shop owners, roasters, historians, patrons, entrepreneurs, writers, and photographers about what it’s like to drink coffee in Havana. The capital city is fueled by strong, sweet coffee made from beans grown in the Cuban mountains and served at home—or downed in tiny ceramic cups residents sell from their windowsills. Meanwhile, international players see opportunity brewing to open more cafes like the city's two state-owned roasters.

Drift, Volume 3 guides us from Italy to New Zealand, from Havana’s frenetic old town to coffee plantation ruins in the city’s periphery, and from the 1700s to the future, as we take a magnifying glass to what makes Havana’s coffee scene tick.

Drift, Volume 3 includes:

  • A look into ventanillas, the window shops Cubans set up to sell coffee from their homes;
  • Shopping trip: How Havana locals get their café con chícharo;
  • An interview with artist Damian Aquiles about the coffee that fuels his work;
  • How Havana earned (and lost and regained) its reputation as a coffee capital; 
  • Profiles of Major League baseball players;
  • A photo series dedicated to Cocotaxi drivers’ favorite places to drink coffee;
  • A look into the city’s two state-owned coffee roasters;
  • Profiles of students at the University of Havana;
  • Café Bustelo: How one coffee brand recreates the tastes of home, abroad;
  • And more…
