Food & Gay Culture Magazine Mouthfeel Launches Awesome “Coffee Issue”


Including an investigative report on the disappearance of legendary adult film star Buck Hayes, the Coffee Issue features a concentrated brew of long-form profiles, in-depth interviews and original art—forging the unique intersection between the worlds of food, art and pornography.

Mouthfeel Magazine launches its first ever Coffee Issue, with anchor feature “Coffee with Buck Hayes” (the untold story and search for prolific 80’s adult film star Buck Hayes). The issue also includes an in-depth interview with coffee media maven Zachary Carlsen of, interviews with international DJ, Kim Ann Foxman (Hercules and Love Affair, Firehouse Recordings), and post hardcore musician

Brain Cook (Botch, Russian Circles) shot by photographer Jason Rodgers (Kim Gordon, Sam Smith); a long format profile of Vancouver B.C.’s tea-producing entrepreneur Max Rivest, and a barista portrait series by Australian editor Zac Bayly (Fantastic Man, Food For Fashion).

“We wanted The Coffee Issue to continue Mouthfeel’s celebration of gay people in food, this time focusing on coffee,” says Mouthfeel’s Founding Editor Mac Malikowski. “Coffee has always been a staple in gay culture–the post-disco diner, the gayborhood hub, the artist hangout and a safe-space for alternative folk—we wanted to celebrate the drink that we feel fuels gay culture.”

The Coffee Issue also contains an original recipe contributed by celebrated American pastry chef David Lebovits and accompanying brew guides produced in collaboration with Stumptown Coffee Roasters. As with every issue of Mouthfeel, the release also includes original artwork and a set of punk pins. The Coffee Issue also includes unique punk flyers designed for coffee roasting companies Stumptown, Variety, Tandem and more.
