Humans of coffee: Adam Goldberg

Who is Adam Goldberg? I’m the editor in chief of Drift, a new coffee magazine you probably haven’t heard of. I’m from and currently live in New York with my girlfriend and Drift’s creative director, Daniela. My sister Elyssa, Drift’s Executive editor, also lives in the same building, so it’s a blast working together on a project we’re passionate about: Drift, a magazine about cities — their culture, architecture, and people — as seen through the lens of coffee. I love to travel and learn new languages. That’s been the inspiration for Drift’s city-by-city focus. In my spare time I box and write home automation software for my apartment.. right now my coffee brews automatically when I wake up, lights dim when I watch TV, and turn off when I fall sleep. Although admittedly, sometimes lights still turn on in the middle of the night. What is your best childhood memory? When I was 13, I lived in Sichuan, China for a summer. My best friend from elementary school was from Chengdu and invited me back …

How about some coffee in New York?

“Welcome to New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there’s nothing you can’t do.” These words perfectly describe New York. Perfectly describe the coffee scene. Perfectly describe the people there. I have had the massive privilege of travelling to the amazing New York City twice in the past six months. I have experienced, seen and tasted so much awesomeness that it only seems fair that I share such experiences with you. If you are a coffee lover, love experiences and want to know where to get the best cup in the Big Apple, then this article is for you. I first want to preface this article by telling you what the coffee scene is like in this City. One word comes to mind: explosive. Absolutely explosive. I was in the city for over three weeks and every day I made it my mission to visit at least two to three stores a day. I wanted to meet baristas, I wanted them to make and tell me about their coffee and take some nice …

Humans of coffee: Michael Phillips

Who is Michael Phillips? A midwesterner at heart no matter how much he travels.  I like hard work, fairness and people that are more considerate than self-interested. What’s your best childhood memory? My childhood home was two stories and my room was on the second floor.  I had a hot wheels track that on the weekends I would set up to go down the stairs to the first floor.  Working with all the different parts and finding news ways to set it up was one of my favorite things. If you had a chance for a “do-over” in life, what would you do differently? Hard to say anything on this one.  I have made a ton of mistakes but I learned lessons from every single one and it is whats made me the person I am today which is a person I am pretty happy with all things said and done. What do you feel most proud of? I am most proud of keeping pace with the group of friends that I have.  There are …
