L’Arbre à Café

Fuel your coffee fetish at the same place that Pierre Hermé does. This unique little shop on the foodie’s dream street of rue du Nil sells coffee equipment and freshly roasted single-origin beans from 15-20 small-scale coffee farmers. It’s not a true café where you can linger, but you can grab one of the most interesting shots of espresso in town or an expert cold-brewed coffee. And for chocoholics, they offer Claudio Corrallo chocolates and homemade chocolat chaud.

Le Monde (2015) “… petit eldorado parisien des bons produits. On peut l’y croiser parfois, qui dispense informations précieuses et conseils de dégustation à tour de bras. Mais cet érudit de la caféologie est rarement dans ses locaux : voyageant de plantation en plantation… Il s’est spécialisé dans les cafés monovariétaux (en opposition aux assemblages que proposent la plupart des marques) qui valorisent les origines, les producteurs et les caractéristiques propres.”

Lost in Cheeseland (2013) “Single-original coffee, equipment and chocolate from Claudio Corallo chocolates are among the expert offerings at this ultra tiny shop directly across the street from Frenchie-to-Go. Come for specialized beans and cold-brewed coffee.”

David Lebovitz (2013) “Perhaps the most focused coffee shop in Paris.”

    Nicely done. Should you want to get Hippolyte’s coffee delivered to you in the US, let me know.
