I step inside La Brûlerie des Ternes at 10 Rue de Poncelet. I’m welcomed by a smiling, calm, professional and of course passionate Mathieu. Like the coffee roaster himself, La Brûlerie is 40 years old. Mathieu took over running the store in 2017. Along with Fabio and Vivian, these three form a great team and exude a love for their profession. I’m sure you’ll enjoy yourself here. During our conversation, I came to understand all the expertise that goes into each little coffee bean. Mathieu uses a vocabulary akin to that of wine to evoke the organoleptic properties (all stimuli related to taste, flavour and smell), the finish, a blended or single origin coffee, and more. He knows about every product (plant varieties, origin, altitude, climate, etc.). You can choose between 30 coffee products. Some recipes are unique and created here. And there is also a selection of 86 teas and herbal infusions to enjoy.
