We're dedicated to uplifting and supporting the coffee industry and all the people who are part of it, but we're also a part of that industry and we too need your support!
We are thrilled to bring you Issue 31, out latest edition, online. When the lockdown is lifted we will distribute the print version, but until then, if you're looking for some beautifully curated coffee content. We've got just the thing for you!
We wanted to capture what people are feeling at this time. Alone. Distanced. Going through their coffee rituals in a new or different way to usual. Some say red symbolizes danger or anger. Both abound during this pandemic. Red also symbolizes love and that’s what we’re choosing to focus on. We love coffee, we love our community and we love you, the people who make the world of coffee, and this magazine, worth it. Issue 31 is packed full of inspiration and escapism and incredible humans. Enjoy!
