At Savoir Faire Paris we love our daily coffee’s to get us through the weeks, as the hashtag goes #ButFirstCoffee – a moto that we live by daily! Fortunately for us, the future of coffee in Paris has been rapidly changing, meaning that finding your nearest cup of quality coffee is never too far away. The 1€ espressos from over roasted coffee beans at the bar of your typical brasserie are loosing out to those carefully crafted coffees by experienced baristas opening up “specialty” coffee shops all around Paris.
What separates these “speciality” coffee shops from other café’s is that they care about all aspects of the coffee that we are drinking from its extraction, origin, brewing and roasting process and its fair trade arrangements with unknown or small-scale coffee growers. A popular example of quality coffee beans being used in many of the new coffee shops is the Belleville Brûlerie, a Parisian roastery set up by three experienced roasters; David Flynn, Thomas Lehoux and Anselme Blayney. They have created the perfect coffee, which is the epitome of “specialty coffee”. Not only is the coffee fair trade and high quality, but it is locally roasted with fresh coffee beans, sourced from small scale coffee growers in Latin America who handpick their own beans. Their idea is to change the future of coffee in France by promoting this locally roasted, high quality coffee and to show that coffee can be enjoyed and presented in a range of different ways.
