The more things change, the more they stay the same.
While Coffee or Die Magazine has seen many changes this year — including the exit of our founding editor — we've also stayed true to our mission to be out in front of the stories that mean the most to our readers. In 2022, that meant having reporters on the ground in Ukraine and Syria, embedding with the US Border Patrol and Coast Guard, and telling the stories of those who fought — or are still fighting — to make the world a better place.
Notably, Coffee or Die senior editor Nolan Peterson was in the unique position of covering the Russian invasion of Ukraine from his literal living room. Having lived in the country since 2014, Peterson provided some of the most important reporting from the front lines with an understanding of the Ukrainian people and culture that few other reporters can match.
It’s never an easy task to narrow down our favorites from the year, but here are 15 top stories and five videos — in no particular order — that form a solid representation of who we are, what we’re passionate about, and, most importantly, what matters to you, the readers.
Starting tonight, you can cast your vote for which of these stories you think is best over in our Instagram stories.
