Drift Magazine Volume 4 is available on loremnotipsum.com and focuses on Stockholm. The Swedish capital is not only a trendsetter in fashion and design but also home to a tight-knit community of coffee-drinkers. Anchored by fika, in which Swedes meet friends for pastries and coffee to take breaks from everyday life, the Swedes have been cultivating rich coffee culture for centuries. Is it possible to retain that deeply ingrained tradition in the age of proliferating specialty cafes, environmental concerns, and immigration? Holding a magnifying glass to the contrast between a small and icy Baltic seaside city with quiet traditions and a city marked by perpetual innovation, Drift Volume 4: Stockholm is a must-have for coffee and travel lovers alike.
This issue contains stories about Stockholm, its coffee, and the people who drink it. For our fourth issue, we hear from dozens of locals, shop owners, roasters, patrons, entrepreneurs, writers, and photographers about what it’s like to drink coffee in Stockholm. The Swedish capital’s residents drink coffee as if it’s water, and foster a fierce dedication to fika whether they’re at the office or snuggling near a fire in the dead of winter. Yet, specialty coffee is a harder-than-expect sell in the coffee-guzzling city: Swedes have always had high-quality coffee—for cheap—and expect it to stay that way. Drift Volume 4 guides us from India to New York, from an early 1900s ship on the harbor to trendy Södermalm, and from the 1700s to the future, as we take a magnifying glass to what makes Stockholm’s coffee scene tick.
