Not long ago was it impossible to distinguish one cup of coffee from another along the boulevards in this magnificent city. The tabac, kiosk, café, bistro and master-chef-gourmet-restaurant all served the same cup of south-european-anonomus-blend-of-who-knows-what. No questions asked, just add sugar.
In 2012 Oliver Strand wrote:
” Finally, Paris has a coffee scene. The city has always been the paradox of the industry, a great cafe town where an otherwise discerning audience happily throws back watery shots of ashy swill. I first wrote about Paris coffee in 2010, and after returning to the topic last year I decided to sit on my hands until somebody in the city figured out what it was missing.”
We loved it then. We love it even more now:
See you all in January 2015!
