What could be better than a walk around Paris, a city known for its café culture? Sitting at a street-side café, drinking freshly brewed coffee, of course!
The French have been involved in the coffee trade since the early 1700’s. The country is the home of history-rich coffee brands Carte Noire, Maison Du Café and Grand Mere.
One sip of these coffees will instantly take you to that café near the Eiffel Tower, sitting at a small round table as a beret-wearing musician serenades with his accordion. May we suggest you start your trip here with one, two or three of our favorite French coffee brands:
Carte Noire, literally “black card”, began almost 35 years ago when Rene Monnier, a coffee blender and roaster whose family produced Grand Mere, started his own coffee business. The Monniers chose the name and the black and gold packaging to reflect sophistication and elegance. Carte Noire has been marketed as “a Coffee named desire”, also reflected in their commercials and other advertisements. In fact, some have described their ads as seductive! Carte Noire still remains today as one of France’s most popular coffee brands. We have a range of roasts of Carte Noire, including Classic, Velours (as velvety as it sounds), and Decaffeinated. We have ground, whole beans, instant, pods, and espresso Carte Noire coffees available.
Maison Du Café is produced by Douwe Egberts France. In France, their advertising slogan is “Each cup offers a moment of pleasure and friendship.” We have two roasts. Ma Tradition is a combination of Robusta and Arabica coffee beans, roasted in the Douwe Egberts process, which produces a fragrant and balanced medium roast coffee. LOR Doux is soft and sweet from the 100% Arabica coffee beans.
Grand Mere, started by the Monnier family, is named after a grandmother because “Grandma knows how to make a good coffee.” Just look at the package to see her smiling down on you as you enjoy her coffee. Today, the brand is one of the top coffee brands in France. We have ground Degustation (Tasty) and Familial (Family) roasts in 8.8oz packages.
