Seated on the peaceful terrace, with a pastry from Zürcher in hand, sip on a cup of joe, which though sourced from the other side of the globe (Ethiopia, Peru, Mexico, Rwanda), was roasted just four kilometers away in an atelier that you can visit on Bordeaux’s right bank. For aficionados, alongside the carefully-sourced beans, there’s also a handful of coffee-related accessories: Comandante coffee grinders, Florilège Massoubre mugs, Chemex coffeemaker, Hario kettles, Jura E8 espresso grinder… // Albert Gredinbar  

The hidden gem: A coffee that wakes you straight up: Arema, a pure Brazilian bean with hazelnut and milk chocolate notes (€13.50 for 500 g).
