VOLUME 12: PARIS

As one of the most recognizable backdrops in the world, Paris is a globally celebrated lookbook of quaint vignettes and glittering excess. Perhaps more than any other city in the world, it is the visual yardstick by which all others are measured. But this treasured gem is multifaceted, offering more than just the well-worn patina of emperors and flâneurs.

Drift Volume 12 is a bundle of postcards from this beloved capital of art, culture, romance, history, fashion, and cuisine. But until recently, Paris wasn’t celebrated for its coffee.

Fortunately, changing tides have brought waves of coffee entrepreneurs and aficionados, who are creating an exciting, new coffee culture that has invaded Paris’s picturesque alleyways and grand boulevards. This issue visits the centuries and arrondissements, and peeks behind the old façades and new, that, together with the imagination and passion of Parisians and expats alike, make the City of Light an emerging destination for serious coffee roasters, brewers, and drinkers.

Drift Volume 12 includes:

  • Reflections by a lovesick traveler, in a Paris of cigarettes and coffee for a layover.
  • Wading into the divide between brasseries from coffee shops, and appreciating their differences.
  • From the chipped-paint storefront of an old cordonnerie—cobbler—to a fashion label in the gardens of a former palace, the face of Paris’s coffee shops are changing.
  • And more…
