Just how many ways are there to create a differentiated coffee experience.

Introducing kioskafe Worth checking out the webpage just to download the amazing lists of available material from around the world – must say a bit impressed.
Here is how they describe the concept
A new project from the founders of Monocle: the perfect newsstand and coffee bar. Just launched in London’s Paddington, Kioskafé is not only a new addition to the neighbourhood surrounding one of Europe’s busiest transport hubs but a new retail model for busy travellers, magazine fans and lovers of coffee roasted by talented Kiwis.
Developed as a response to the shrinking news trade, the handsomely designed space is a celebration of print, putting the written word, fine images and crisp paper centre stage. In addition to delivering the best periodicals, Kioskafé also serves the best Allpress coffee and stocks essentials for those out on the road: toothpaste, Swiss undies, a spritz of cologne and good hair wax, among other things.
In both the PG & UG planning and design units we discuss the concept of gentrification, particularly the role the hospitality industry plays in the changing face of city neighbourhoods. This article on the role of Coffee & art plays in the changing face of a Miami neighbourhood demonstrates the power of the ‘coffee experience’.

This short Korean video helps raise some interesting issues for students looking at the concepts of food experiences.
An easy starting point is what makes a food experience? From there it would be easy to look at, as is so often the case with high end eating or food as art, the morality of this type of eating when people are starving.
More interesting is the global nature of the video, Korean, found on FaceBook, featuring globally recognised chefssuch as Spain’s Ferrian Adria or Dutch Food designer Marije Vogelzang. The experience Economy identified by Pine and Gilmore was American centric but today largely driven by the Internet the nation state boundaries are being removed. For students maybe an important point is that the horizon has changed and so needs to their thinking. Globalisation is happening at a fascinating pace.
