Preorder a Copy of the Book ‘Paris Coffee Revolution’

For the last two years I have been covering the specialty coffee scene in Paris. For a long time, Paris was a place that was known for bad quality coffee and not much else. But in the last few years, this has changed, and nowadays there are a handful of local specialty roasters and a long list of cafes where you’re sure to get served a good cup.

Last year photographer Jeff Hargrove reached out to me. He had been bitten by the coffee bug and as a portrait photographer, he wanted to self-publish a book with portraits of the “coffee entrepreneurs” in Paris – the people who helped to change the coffee scene. But he wanted more than portraits, he wanted a story. And so I came along to help write that story: Paris Coffee Revolution.

After a lot of hard work, we are finally wrapping up this project and sending it off to the printer. To cover printing costs, we have a crowdfunding campaign going, which gives you the chance to preorder a copy of the book. For anyone that preorders during this campaign, not only do you get a discounted price on the book but your copy will also be signed.

The book is being printed in Denmark (at a printing company that also has an organic farm and beehives, which I think is pretty great) on FSC-certified paper, and has over 100 photos. And what’s not shown in the cover photo above (because it’s just a mockup) is that the thread that the book is bound with will be brown, inspired by the color of coffee.
