Magazine F Issue 18 (Coffee) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. For ages, people around the world have loved coffee, a beverage on which countless cultures have been built in a host of metropolises and countries. Each coffee variety responds to terroir and production conditions, and like fashion, these nuances have become indicators of individual preferences and tastes of coffee lovers.
Before the green beans nestled inside the coffee cherries can be served up as hot beverages, they must pass through the hands of farmers, roasters, and baristas, who comprise an industry valued at over USD 100 billion worldwide. Also, like a symbol of exchange between societies and communities, coffee culture wields enormous influence on lifestyle and adjacent industries. Today, great coffee experiences are being redefined by the movement to produce and consume coffee in a sustainable way as well as fair trade, which secures proper price points for coffee products.
Magazine F is a food documentary magazine co-created by Magazine B and Baemin, which introduces one particular ingredient that has had a significant impact on people’s table. Baemin has become a critical mover and shaker in South Korean contemporary food culture, and B provides a balanced view on brands through multi-layered stories. This collaboration brings together these two areas of expertise in F, which is hoped to become a record of essential ingredients and food culture of our time. Magazine B’s sister publication, Magazine F enriches your experience with everyday ingredients. Each issue explores how an ingredient is grown, prepared, and shared in different cultures around the world, through in-depth interviews, inspiring stories, and beautiful photos.
