La Main Noire
A history of a Franco Australian friendship.
The three co-founders originally met in Melbourne, the capital of modern brunch and coffee shops.
After having travelled around multiple continents, always looking for new experiences and inspiration, they returned to Paris together and created La Main Noire, a collective specialized in coffee shop and brunch culture.
Their ambitions : to bring new ideas and new healthy products ; delicious and innovative, to stimulate the parisien café scene and those abroad.This disappointment aside, they realised that the beginnings of a new wave of specialty coffee and brunch culture were there and that the potential for this industry to grow was immense. The 3 coffee lovers set about brainstorming what they could do to help bring the Parisian market to new height LA MAIN NOIRE had its new identity. The guys moved quickly to identify areas that the industry could improve, and the most clear of these was vegetable milks. In Melbourne, Berlin, New York (all cities at the forefront of specialist coffee) high quality vegetable milks are an expectation of most customers. They made this their first priority and sourced the best Soy milk available to bring to Paris. It was until the second product, however, that LA MAIN NOIRE really found itself.As Paris begins to get a feel for LA MAIN NOIRE, the guys are constantly working with high quality cafes and products to bring more to this wonderful city.
