Over the couple of years since I’ve been going to Nomade, apparently I’ve been tasting coffee coming directly from producers cultivated by companies in Belgium, Holland, Sweden and France. The latest beans being ground are from Paris-based distributor Kawa Coffee – so the 20-something proprietor lets me know – and that it’s direct-from-the-producer to distributor, then Nomade Cafe.
After 55 days, Nomade cafe is open once again (but check Instagram for details), after lockdown was eased. And, of course, keep a check on when businesses will return fully to allow access to the interiors. Right now it’s a makeshift terrace only. But given the weather is just right, there you go, perfect, it’s terrace only.
So Cafe Nomade opened its canteen in my neighborhood a few years ago now, taking over tenure of the canteen-sized space, the previous home to a tapissier, a furniture workshop. The whole interior was resurfaced and brought a much-needed lift to enjoying great coffee at a leisurely pace.
It’s a perfect morning stop-off for a combo of a filter coffee, pressed juice, depending on what’s in season from the fruit vendor across the street, and a croissant or pain au chocolat. Finally, just to add there’s more than coffee, with speciality teas, soya alternatives for takeaway too, plus homemade citronnade. Oh and it’s just a hip-hop and a groove-step away from Music Avenue Paris records (check article on Music Avenue Paris).
