Reading can be an incredibly fulfilling past time. we can sit cross legged on a couch and travel the world; as I do.


1.Slovakia, Standart Mag

Give and Get €40.00

As many strive to find ways to provide work for their businesses while supporting others, the specialty coffee industry is among them. Standartmag, a quarterly publication exploring coffee culture and its stories through industry leaders and voices from around the world. has launched a two-week campaign to increase its subscribers and support its team while also donating dollars to readers favorite coffee shops.

Readers can “buy a year subscription to Standart with a unique referral code indicating the shop you want to support.”  The subscription comes with four issues of the magazine, half of the subscription price going to said coffee shop and a bag of coffee beans with each magazine shipped.  Join its #giveandget initiative here.

2.Hamburg, Germany: Coffee Table Mags

Coffee Flight  €165.00

Germany based, Coffee Table Mags started as an Instagram account showing international independent magazines paired with daily coffee drinks. The account is an artistic journal of printed matter with collections featuring books on interior design, coffee culture, food and even travel guides.

Now, the account is branching out into a physical subscription aptly named Coffee Flight. Coffee flights in café’s usually include three drinks varying from rifs off one coffee prepared three different ways. Coffee Table Mags present three “essential coffee reading” magazines caffeeinemag, standartmag and driftmag as part of a one-year subscription, with shipping worldwide. Three for one year, sounds good to us.

Welcome to the April+May 2020 issue of Barista Magazine. It’s strange to be releasing an issue that is full of so many joyful stories during such a scary and uncertain time. Between the time we sent this issue to press, and now, our whole world has turned upside down. . But we deserve to be hopeful, to keep in mind that this kind of joy is possible. We are strong, our community. We are resilient. I hope you can read this issue and lose yourself in the story of a man who built himself and his business from a wild dream and succeeded—that’s Ian Williams, the owner of Deadstock Coffee in Portland, Ore., and his story will blow you away. . This is Barista Magazine’s 15th anniversary issue, and we’re proud of it. It feels weird to release something that barely addresses the pandemic that’s dictating our lives right now, but thank goodness we have our daily news website, Barista Mag Online, where we have been churning out tons of information about how Covid-19 is affecting the coffee industry, and we’ll continue to do so as long as it’s needed. . Today, though—today, we’re going to celebrate Ian, the many other stories and writers and artists in this issue, and the fact that a scrappy little magazine made for baristas is marking its 15th anniversary serving this absolutely incredible community. Thank you for reading. We hope you like it. . Last thing: Follow the link in our profile for information on how you can RED IT FOR FREE on our website and app; and/or order a subscription for 50% off. We want you to draw strength from our magazine—we made it for you. . . . . . . . . . #15thanniversary #deadstockcoffee #specialtycoffee #baristalife #latteart #coffee #coffeepeople #coffeetravel #coffeetime #coffeefriends #coffeecommunity #espresso #cafe #coffeelove #baristalove #baristamag #bmag #baristamagazine #coffeelife #barista #baristas #coffeehouse #coffeeshop #sustainability #espresso #latte #coffeeindustry #coffeemagazine
