Some news from France XCIIII

 

ParisOn a cold, gray night in Bretagne, that is Brittany or even better Breizh, let’s talk about coffee and my favorites Paris haunts.

I took this idea because I came back just last week from Brazil,and visited a farm where the owner had coffee trees, and was able to roast some for me, well 4 kilos !!! that is about 9 lbs of coffee, and we just try it and well , it is delicious!!! So what about those places here that I used to go for that wonderful cup of coffee , expresso or café au lait, or capuccino or mokaccino ! And voilà Le Figaro had a piece on them so here it is.

It started out as a partnership and now there is one left. It also ,used to roast its own coffee and now takes it from abroad  such as Has Bean (England) and Koppi (Sweden) but the flavorful coffees and the service remains the same.  Télescope, 5 ,rue Villedo, 1er, open every day except Sundays from 8h30 to 18h (M-F) and 9h30 to 18h30 (Sat). http://www.telescopecafe.com/

KB Café Shop.  This used to be the  «Kooka Boora», just in the area of  South Pigalle with a big terrace by the roads of Trudaine/Martyrs. The roasted coffee comes from the la Brûlerie de Belleville,but also from abroad such as  Square Mile (England).  Also, serving Scones, granola ,and fruit juice.  53, avenue Trudaine  and 62, rue des Martyrs ( 9e). Tél. +33 01 56 92 12 41. open every day from  7h30 to 18h30 ( from 9h to 18h30 on the weekends).

Tél. +33 01 39 74 82 69. simply awesome, missed it. http://cafe.cafes-pfaff.com/

Price for coffee in Paris is very disperse, you can have it at luxury places like Fouquet’s for 8€ or simple places likeFolies de Belleville for 1,50€. Café de laPaix 6€, Le Train Bleu 6,10€, Café Marly 5,50€ , and the Starbucks at 1,95€. However ,if you drink it at the counter you can lower these prices considerably and even get it for 1,30€ aroundRivoli, like the CaféL’Imperiale.

Some good ones near me are Brûlerie Alre, 8b, Rue Jean Marie Barré, 56400 Auray (for beans)  http://www.brulerie-dalre.com/La-Brulerie-d-Alre-_a_5_c_3.html  and the cafe le Petit Port, 7, Place St Sauveur,56400 Auray,http://www.lepetitport-brasserie.fr/

Brulerie Saint Patern 4 rue Saint Nicolas 56000 Vannes ; http://www.le-site-de.com/brulerie-saint-patern-vannes_94847.html

and a site in French listing all the coffee roasters or torréfacteurs in France part of the comité Français du Café, http://www.comitefrancaisducafe.fr/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=28&Itemid=82

and the Brooklyn Café right inAtlanville Vannes,one of my favorite haunts here and you can see me .http://www.atlanville.fr/brooklyn-cafe

So enjoy coffee, its great after a great meal or even in the middle of the day for a work break, great amongst friends because no alcohol so more politically correct drink. Have a cup tonite, I know I will soon and from Brazil ::)
