Drift is a smart, well-designed, edgy magazine dedicated to coffee culture. Each semi-annual issue focuses on a different place, exploring the many ways coffee is enjoyed there.
Drift returns to its origins with this Manhattan-focused issue. (The very scarce issue #1 was "New York.") And given all that has happened in 2020, it's not surprising that a significant part of the issue's focus is on the response and resilience of the island's coffee scene in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
But there's also a very Manhattan-style love of quirkiness and diversity in articles that celebrate things such as the classic blue-and-white Anthora coffee cup that was a staple of Greek diners but created by a Czech immigrant.
Rich with a sense of place and history. And gorgeously photographed.
Paperback. Color and black-and-white photography throughout.
