And one more! Recently inaugurated in the Mouffetard neighborhood, a new place dedicated to coffee has just opened its doors in Paris. Under the name Loutsa, this boutique is the first Parisian address of this Lyon-based roaster. True to its promise, Loutsa offers the opportunity to experience the roasting process and discover multiple flavors of coffee. Connoisseurs are already crowding the Parisian café.
This opening is a testimony to the growth of the coffee industry over the last ten years, which embraces specialty coffee shops, specialty shops, coffee lounges and other places where experienced baristas work, inciting the popularization of their coffee. Faced with the multinationals, a new generation of coffee shop owners is shaking up the sector by advocating an authentic and artisanal approach to coffee. According to an amateur at the counter, “The new generation of baristas is part of a real creative process. There is enormous potential in roasting.” In these new places, appreciated by a clientele that is often young and trendy, the best grains are tasted like fine wines, following an expert preparation that brings old practices up to date.
