After stumbling into the coffee world in Melbourne, Hugo Matheu (ex-Lomi in Paris) opened the coolest coffee shop in Toulouse in the Bonnefoy neighborhood. Inside his big industrial space with unfinished walls, you’ll notice a big roasting machine that fills the air with a heavenly scent, fed carefully chosen beans.

What’s more, he grinds his specialty coffees and meticulously measured blends when they are ordered.
