Volume 3: Havana

This issue contains stories about Havana, its coffee, and the people who drink it. For our third issue, we hear from dozens of locals, shop owners, roasters, historians, patrons, entrepreneurs, writers, and photographers about what it’s like to drink coffee in Havana. The capital city is fueled by strong, sweet coffee made from beans grown in the Cuban mountains and served at home—or downed in tiny ceramic cups residents sell from their windowsills. Meanwhile, international players see opportunity brewing to open more cafes like the city's two state-owned roasters.
