L’Experience Cafés Richard

With more than 20 years in the F&B and coffee market, Eric, consultant for Cafés Richard and founder of l’Ami Café decided to share the ultimate experience of a superb cup of coffee.

“Settled in Hong Kong for several years, I still remember being at the Terasse of the Café de Flore in Paris.

Surrounded by intellectuals, artists and musicians. All waiting for the famous red border cup. The unique bistro atmosphere that offers a blend of emotion, culture and animated discussion.

From Saint-Germain-des-Prés to Montmartre via the Grands Boulevards, Cafés and Restaurants in Paris have their own personality; they also have one point in common: Cafés Richards. The most distinct and intense experience.”
