New York based Drift magazine is a unique take on coffee and the culture that surrounds it. Each issue covers a different city and tries to understand what makes the city tick.
After drifting around Melbourne, New York, Tokyo and Havana, the recently released issue 6 sweeps us to the unlikely coffee haven – Mexico City. This issue features Mexico's well-kept coffee secrets known only to locals, a photo glossary of essential Mexican pastries, interviews with artists approaching the coffee industry through design, a photo series dedicated to Mexico City residents waiting for their morning cups and a traditional as well as modern take on ‘Café de Olla’ with a tinge of Mexican flavours.

We had a chance to read the Melbourne issue of Drift a couple of months ago and thoroughly enjoyed this bi-annual publication. The magazine talks to dozens of locals, shop owners, roasters, patrons, entrepreneurs, writers, and photographers about what it’s like to drink coffee in one of the largest and most populous cities in the world. The sprawling transformation of coffee from a mere beverage to a ritual, to the role of specialty coffee in Mexico City; Drift's new issue explores culture in “SOBREMESA”, tragedy in “LA ROYA”, history in “#CDMX” and transitions in “MAKEOVER”; all through the lens of coffee.
