CAFFEINATION: POUR OVER MAGAZINE, AN ARTSY INDIE MAG FOR COFFEE-FUELED TIMES

Coffee is so central to contemporary daily life for millions — if not billions — of people all over the world. More people than ever before in human history drink it. Some form of coffee, be it the regular drip-type served black or a fussy almond-milk cappuccino with an extra shot of espresso or a nitro cold brew, is consumed in ever more quantities with each passing day. It’s only fitting then that there’s an artsy, beautifully designed indie magazine devoted to the beverage. It’s kind of shocking that a mag like Pour Over hasn’t popped up on the media landscape sooner. (It probably has in some corner of the world, say, in a Western European country, but we haven’t seen it.) Sure, there have been other magazines about coffee culture, but these seem more geared toward industry folks (baristas, roasters, et. al.,) or foodies. These have generally carried a generic, less imaginative magazine aesthetic. Pour Over isn’t just talking about coffee as much as it’s exhibiting the living breathing life around it.
