Café Cuillier At Galleries Lafayette: Très Paris, Better Than Ever
There’s certainly a movement afoot. The day I visited Lafayette Gourmet, there was an entire Bodum display being put up in the front window featuring French presses and the Bodum pour-over brewer. Coffee, and specialty coffee in particular, is certainly in the French media enough that people are paying attention. Even coffee giant Cafés Richard now features plenty of manual brew methods in its boutique window displays. And what’s unique about Café Cuillier is that it’s able to reach a much different market than a lot of the other specialty cafes in town. While many of the other specialty coffee hubs are attractive to “coffee tourists,” willing to travel anywhere, Café Cuillier is in a location where people just want to sit down for a coffee to take a break from their afternoon downtown.
