Drift Volume 3: Havana
Drift is about coffee, the people who drink it, and the cities they inhabit. Our collection of writers and photographers, alongside coffee shop owners, baristas, streetcart vendors, and patrons, capture 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.
Our third issue takes us to Havana, as we share thermoses of scarce coffee stretched with powdered peas, tinker with Italian espresso machines in disrepair, meet a band that performs alongside the sound of grinding beans, and get familiar with international power players itching to break into a coffee-growing, coffee-guzzling country on the brink of change. Volume 3 is about what it’s like to drink coffee in Havana, past and present, a palm tree-packed tropical city with as much gusto as the coffee it offers.
