Café Coutume… A Coffee Lover’s… Dream…

Café Coutume

A delightful…

Café

In the 7th arrondissement

Rue de Babylone…

Situated on a quiet street… “juste à côté de”… the unmissableLe Bon Marché

Feeling less than fabulous… on a wet rainy day… nursing a silly throat infection… I was pushed by my friend into this spacious room with the most unusual barcounterconstructed of white tiles, with the most amazing machines on top… which has been described as… “a Haussmanian Paris apartment with a laboratory”… but in contrast to the apt description is the fact that one also feels very “homey“… and at home… in the friendlybonhomieatmosphere.

My friend did me good… I immediately felt bettera lot.

The Coutume… once the home of a kebab take-out… has been enticingly transformed into a modern contemporary coffee houseevery coffee lovers dream.

Antoine Netien… co-founder and mastertorréfacteur“… “roaster”… who’s just been named as one of the  “lauréats” in the “2ème Concours du Meilleur Torréfacteur de France 2011“… or the “Best Roaster in Francecompetition… by the Comité Français du Café… uses beans that are lovingly roasted in the large roaster displayedprepared using four different methods

Tom Clark… the friendly Brit is co-founder… who is more than happy to explain the various methods… via espresso machinesiphon, conical drip, and through a unique cold-drip apparatus

Kevin Ayers… an American in Paris… and head barista… who moved specifically from the US to work at Coutume illustrates Coutume Café’s seriousness about providing expertise and excellence in their field…  These people are clearly passionate about producing the best cup of coffee in Paris.

Coutume… is a refreshing and engaging new open “American Style“… roastery and café… which allows you to see everything that is happening around you

Exciting…

Perched high… on very comfortable high chairs… and the incredibly and innovatively designed barsipping our delectable coffee with the lovely enticingviennoisserie“… tempting us to devour them… we felt a tremendous warmth and liking for this very special café

A charming new venue

A brave new café
