So, even if you don’t like coffee at all, you cannot miss the opportunity to be in Paris on September 11th, 12th and 13th.
Paris, France-June 09, 2016 : The famous cafe Les Deux magots located in parisian Saint Germain des Pres district. It had ben frequented by Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso…
From the exhibition to the organization of events, to meetings between peers, everything is done to allow exhibitors to easily present their products and know-how to the greatest number of visitors. In order to facilitate the identification of the types of visitor, badges of different colors will be given to coffee enthusiasts and professionals. Thus a simple and practical markup will allow exhibitors to easily differentiate B2B from B2C visitors.
The event will see the participation of many Italian coffee companies, some of which will have also sponsored the Paris Coffee Show.

Collectif Café (Comité Français du Café, CFC) is the main French employers’ federation representing all professionals in the French coffee sector, including importers, coffee roasters, baristas, and coffee shops. Collectif Café was founded in 1959 with the aim of sharing information about coffee and promoting coffee awareness in France. It plays a vital role in the protection of the interests of importers, roasters, baristas and coffee shops, and works to promote the sector and all its stakeholders (Collectif Café, n.d.).
It also organizes the 1st French event dedicated to coffee and its universe – the Paris Coffee Show – as well as national coffee competitions such as: the competition of France’s Best Roaster, the competition for the best coffee blend in France, the Barista Masters France and, new since 2019, the Junior Café Masters. Collectif Café helped to register the profession of roaster in the competition “One of the Best Workers of France”, the first edition of which took place in September 2018 during the roasters conference in Bordeaux.

AN ECO-FRIENDLY EVENT
This year, the whole Parisian team will take special care of the environment by creating an event as eco-friendly as possible! The show’s stands, equipment, carpets and paper parts will be used in a reasoned manner with the aim of being reused for the next edition. Because coffee comes from nature, it is fundamental to share its values and to be in harmony with our environment.

The 2021 edition adapts to the health context by offering you an event with a reduced surface and with a lot of fresh air, an exhibition space at the heart of this new edition, with redesigned entertainment spaces. The objective is to give everyone the opportunity to meet again safely.
Keynote speakers of this year’s Paris Coffee Show are going to be Nathalie Schraen-Guirma (French radio and television and coffee marketing), Pierre Hermé (World Best Pastry Chef in 2016), Victor Delpierre (Coffee in Good Spirits World Champion) and Vincent Ferniot (French radio and television, inventor of the Carré de Café – 1st coffee to chew on tablets).

ALAIN DUCASSE AND HIS COFFEE ART
Monaco is a world capital for top quality food and cuisine. We can remind you of Mr. Alain Ducasse with his restaurant “Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse” at the Hôtel de Paris. Mr. Ducasse, born in Monaco, is a worldwide famous chef with restaurants and cafés in Paris and London. He was one of the first chefs offering his guests different types of single origin coffee.
Le Café Alain Ducasse in London offers a wide range of blends and single origin coffee from all around the world, the most expensive one coming from Yemen (you can read our article about Yemeni coffee here). A very exclusive coffee variety served by Alain Ducasse in London is Geisha (you can read our article about it here, while here you can find our “Panama Geisha – Dona Elvira” offer), a single origin coffee coming from a volcanic region in the north of Panama (Reporter Gourmet, 2021).
