More about this issue
Perpetual fog, chilly mornings, and a diverse population of creative-thinkers — San Francisco is one of the most compelling places to drink coffee right now. This hilly city has one of the United States’ highest concentration of independent coffee shops — an outgrowth of the entrepreneurial spirit in the Bay. It’s what cemented San Francisco’s reputation as one of the coffee capitals of the country. But those pioneering small players have become mammoth, and it’s been over a decade since their heyday. As a new generation of tech-obsessed coffee-drinkers are reshaping the city’s neighborhoods at a rapid clip, this issue of Drift explores what happens now.
Drift, San Francisco guides it’s readers from Thailand to Italy, and peers into the not-so-distant future, as they take a magnifying glass to see what makes San Francisco’s coffee scene tick.
More about Drift
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. It’s collection of writers and photographers, alongside coffee shop owners, baristas, streetcart vendors, and patrons, captures 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 Drift 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.
