San Francisco Bay Area

San Francisco Bay Area

This issue contains stories about San Francisco, its coffee, and the people who drink it. In this issue, we hear from dozens of locals, shop owners, roasters, patrons, entrepreneurs, writers, and photographers about what it’s like to drink coffee in the Bay. Perpetual fog, chilly mornings, and a diverse population of creative-thinkers—San Francisco is one of the most compelling places to drink coffee right now. This hilly city has one of the United States’ highest concentration of independent coffee shops—an outgrowth of the entrepreneurial spirit in the Bay. It’s what cemented San Francisco’s reputation as one of the coffee capitals of the country. But those pioneering small players have become mammoth, and it’s been over a decade since their heyday. As a new generation of tech-obsessed coffee-drinkers are reshaping the city’s neighborhoods at a rapid clip, this issue of Drift explores what happens now.

Drift, San Francisco guides us from Thailand to Italy, and peers into the the not-so-distant future, as we take a magnifying glass to see what makes San Francisco’s coffee scene tick.

Drift: San Francisco includes:

The origin of the Kalita Wave
Why San Franciscans wait in line
How surf culture has created a swell of shops
A visual guide of the city’s iconic coffees, including the Snowy Plover, Cherry Bomb, Irish Coffee
And more…

Packaging

Biotre 2.0

Biotrē™ 2.0 has outer layers are made from wood pulp and cellulose from wood pulp. In Biotrē™ 2.0 with Natural Kraft paper on the outside, the outer layers make up approximately 60% of the material by weight and have been shown to break down into healthy compost in 12 weeks when tested using conditions from a test method called ASTM D6868. The interior, sealable layer in Biotrē™ 2.0 is made of a plant-based, renewable resource, sugar cane. This is a durable i.e., non-biodegradable, layer made from renewable plant sources. The greenhouse gas CO2 is absorbed and reduced during the plant’s growth.

Biotrē™ takes a comprehensive approach to being environmentally friendly.

  • Waste Reduction – Biotrē™ can reduce the amount of packaging that ends up in long term waste storage like a landfill.
    • Biotrē™ 2.0 – with the outer layers breaking down naturally in a composting environment in a relatively short period of time, packages can be processed in a home compost to convert 60% of material (Biotrē™ 2.0 are not recommended for municipal or industrial composting). The inner layer can be removed from compost if found and disposed of with normal trash. 60% less material goes to the landfill.
  • Climate Change – The plant-based components that go into Biotrē™ (wood pulp, sugar cane, and corn) absorb the greenhouse gas CO2 through natural plant respiration prior to being used to make Biotrē™ packaging. Absorbing and reducing the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere helps stem the tide of global climate change.
  • Natural Resources - Biotrē™ preserves our natural resources by reducing the use of finite fossil fuel and mineral resources and promoting the use of cyclical, sustainable sources. While most barrier packaging is made from almost exclusively petroleum-based plastics or aluminum foil, Biotre® film layers consist of anywhere for 60% to nearly 100% renewable plants.
