FAQs

How can I get a copy of Caffeine Magazine?

Caffeine is available for free through our network of independent speciality coffee shops – you can find them on our stockist page. If you are not able to get to one of our stockists, or want to ensure you never miss an issue, you can subscribe and we will post one directly to you hot off the printing press.

Can I get some magazines for our café?

We’d love to be in your café! The most efficient way for you is to order a café subscription. Please write in the notes how many mags you would like to receive (up to 20) and we will get them out to you as soon as they are printed.

CAFE SUBSCRIPTION

If you are operating a high-volume cafe we can deliver up to 50 magazines per issue. We do need these cafés to pay a courier fee to get the magazines to them. If there is already a Caffeine stockist in your immediate area, it is unlikely we will be looking for another stockist so close. Sorry, first come first served! At this moment we aren’t looking for more stockists in London, but we are looking for high-quality cafes outside of the capital!

In becoming a distributor we are endorsing your operation so we need to understand the coffee that you serve. If you have been open for at least one year using speciality coffee and have SCA accredited staff training, then please follow this link to our online Questionnaire , we’ll get back to you if we feel you are a good match for Caffeine.

Caffeine is a free-to-customers publication, it cannot be resold. We reserve the right to pull distribution if we find magazines are being sold.

Do you offer internships?

Yes we do! The internships we offer are for two-week blocks only and are unpaid. We believe internships are a two-way street: we give you the experience of the inner workings of running a magazine in exchange for your time. If you are still happy to apply, then click the button below and fill out the online questionnaire.
We look forward to hearing from you!

Can I send you some coffee samples?

Of course! We run a blind cupping each issue to find our top 5 seasonal coffees, the best one getting a full-page feature in the magazine. We will accept two bags per roaster (extras will not be entered) these need to be whole-bean, speciality grade, single-origin coffee and roasted for filter. Blends will be accepted if they have their origins stated. Coffees will not be individually assessed or returned. Unfortunately, we cannot give feedback for each coffee as we can receive up to 60 bags per issue! The coffees sent for our cupping do not need to be roasted in the UK but do need to be readily available here.
Espresso and filter coffees may be posted on our social media channels if we think they are especially tasty or of note. Please send samples to our address.
