La Caféothèque de Paris
Coffee aficionados will not be disappointed by the baristas' aptitude at this pioneering café.
Pasqua Rosée may be credited for opening the first café in Paris in 1672, owner Gloria Montenegro is the pioneer who brought third wave coffee to the forefront with the arrival of her La Caféothèque. The first serious coffee emporium in Paris, now 11 years old, Montenegro sources beans from around the globe and showcases the wide-ranging selection in library-like drawers covering the wall of the coffeehouse. While their quality coffee is enough of a draw for most, the relaxing atmosphere with a sun-drenched front room for gazing out to the street and planted wall in the room at the top of a few steps is as inviting. The staff is thrilled to discuss the different properties and roasting methods for hours and can guide you as to which beans would be best for home brewing.
