Drift Magazine Volume 10 (Manhattan) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Manhattan, an international capital of culture and finance, runs on coffee. As a pandemic sweeps the globe, we survey this incredibly diverse metropolis and hear from voices and neighborhoods that have both withstood as well as adapted to the times.
Drift Magazine Volume 10 shines a spotlight on New York City’s most famous borough: Manhattan. Bartered from Native Americans, this island, sandwiched between New Jersey and Long Island, grew from a colonial trading port into a global capital of commerce and culture. Coffee, which once arrived on its piers from faraway lands, now helps run this international hub that famously never sleeps. From its many street carts, diners, and specialty coffee shops, New York offers locals and visitors coffee on-the-go, or a chance to linger a while in places with faces from all over the world. Whether it’s cappuccino at Caffe Reggio, charcoal-roasted coffee at Kopitiam, or a long black at Little Collins, there’s a story in every cup. From Harlem, all the way down to the Financial District, this issue hits the pavement and follows the threads that stitch Manhattan’s quilted coffee culture.
Drift Magazine is all about coffee. It’s about the people who drink it and the cities they inhabit, from consumers to coffeehouse owners to street venders to baristas. It’s about the ways coffee helps us chart the geography of our environment. Each issue, Drift brings you a glimpse of what it’s like to drink coffee in a different city. It highlights locals and visitors both, and explores what makes them tick.
