While much philosophizing graces the Parisian café terrace, one matter is not up for debate—it’s categorically accepted that this city of lights has a café culture like none other. World Explorations Paris Espresso is the coffee from the classic Parisian café, adapted to contemporary tastes. Traditionally dark-roasted to mask the harsh notes of commercial Robusta, this interpretation hits a softer note. Our blend marries lightly roasted Arabica with a touch of high-quality Robusta to deliver a complex cup both bodied and delicately bitter, all the while singing with a subtle citrus acidity and sweetened by a soft biscuit cereal note.
Designed so it can be extracted as either espresso or lungo, World Explorations Paris is for every café goer. If this cup sat across from you at the table, it would be one fine conversationalist—This World Explorations coffee is all about the atmosphere it creates. Complete the atmosphere by enjoying your coffee with a tartine or adding warm milk and dipping in your fresh croissant.

WORD OF EXPERT: “World Explorations Paris takes me back in time, when I lived in the City of Light. Every morning, I used to walk past this café, full of regulars enjoying their parisian espresso or their dear "noisette" while reading the newspapers. This smell of dark coffee and roasted cereals, I now find it in World Explorations Paris, to try with a croissant of course!“
