Ten Belles, 75010

Another too-cool-for-school coffee joint that was part of what will become known as the craft coffee revolution of 2012. In this case, the driving force was Thomas Lehoux who teamed up with Paris coffee maestro David Flynn to launch this cute, friendly hole in the wall.

The generally accepted term for these places that I hear being bandied around all the time is “Brooklyn”, however, for me, coming to this from a British perspective, I think it’s rather more “Shoreditch.”

In any case, it is a bare-bones establishment in a lesser area of town, but which therefore attracts the out-to-be-seen hipster crowd. In Paris, there is a wave of Generation Y gadabouts who are looking for this. Somewhere modern, with the focus on the provenance, care and elaboration of the final product. (Coffee comes from the Belleville Brulerie.)

I like the Ten Belles. It rather takes miniature and minimalism to the extreme but the welcome is friendly, the coffee is hot and it’s a good little place to have up your sleeve, especially if you’re in the area. 

You come because it’s a beautiful spring day and you need a quick shot of caffeine before strolling along the Canal St-Martin.

Jura – still so much to be discovered

I was in the Jura region last month on a quick getaway with my boyfriend and the dog. It was not my first time in the region, but it was my first stay long enough to develop a decent understanding of the land, its people and their wine. The Jura is in a small pocket […]
