ISSUE 18 NOTES
COMPLEX: What is complexity, and how does it relate to coffee? This issue features COMPLEX work by a variety of artists around the world. There are also 6 (yes SIX!) commissioned articles in this zine connecting the COMPLEX theme to coffee, creativity, and community. From drinking coffee black as a way to process grief, to an exploration into the expectation to be creative, to an historical and personal look at Filipino coffee farmers in Hawai’i, the variety within these pages is truly expansive and vast.
ISSUE 17 NOTES
FLORAL: ALL THE FLOWERS!!! This zine is filled with florality – from aroma notes in coffee to big burst bouquets to flirting with the flowery language of flowers and coffee. This zine includes four commissioned articles/essays with interpretations on what FLORAL can mean, a link to Coffee People Music / Volume 11, a list of Coffee/Flower Shops, a story about how coffee producers are using beekeeping to diversify and strengthen their farms, as well as the usual vibe – submissions of art, poetry, photography, writing, illustrations, and creations by coffee people around the world.
If you’re feeling petals, pomp, and pops of color, this zine is for you.
ISSUE 16 NOTES
BRIGHT: This zine is filled with brightness – from acidic flavor notes to connecting with others over a coffee to finding balance in the Vernal Equinox. This zine includes three commissioned articles about different forms of brightness, as well as the usual vibe – submissions of art, poetry, photography, writing, illustrations, and creations by coffee people around the world.
If you’re feeling ready to be done with winter and happy to welcome longer days, this zine is for you.
ISSUE 15 NOTES
Fifteen. FIFTEEN! We’re on Issue 15, y’all. That’s a lot of issues, and that’s a LOT of artists. We have had the pleasure to publish amazing work by incredible coffee people over the years. So with this issue, we’re revisiting some of the artists who made an impression on us. We have carefully selected 15 artists whose work appeared on past pages of Coffee People Zine, and invited them to share their work – and themselves – with us again. Poets, photographers, illustrators, storytellers, creators.
