Good Coffee in Paris

In case Sips in the city becomes subscriber only, I've recorded their recommendations for good coffee in Paris:
  • Alto Cafe, a collection of mobile trucks in strategic sites selling surprisingly good Italian-style drinks.
  • Australian-born Arnephy is the star barista at Cafe Lomi.
  • Le Bal Cafe is an Anglo-style cafe in a recently opened exhibition space in the 18th arrondissement devoted to photography and film.
  • At Bistro Volnay, in the 2nd arrondissement, the food, wine, service (and coffee) all meet the same high standards at a reasonable price.
  • Sugarplum Cake Shop on rue du Cardinal Lemoine in the 5th arrondissement, dedicated to American-style cakes, has also chosen Lomi beans for its filtered coffee.
  • Coutume Cafe has made a big splash in the otherwise sedate 7th arrondissement, in a high-ceilinged space, a cross between a Parisian apartment and a coffee laboratory, painted all in white except for walls that have been stripped. Coutume's owners buy the green beans directly from coffee-producing countries and roast them on the premises.
  • KB Cafe Shop (formerly Kooka Boora) on the fashionable rue des Martyrs in the 9th arrondissement.
