They're coffee aficionados. Serial entrepreneurs. World travelers. Iconoclasts. Meet the rock stars of the New Wave specialty coffee scene in Paris. They're fueling a movement that is forever changing a city beloved for its café culture, but not the coffee itself. Some are influenced by the Aussie coffee scene, others by the American independents, still others Nordic Europe. And the Paris Coffee Project is talking to them.
