About us

Although Paris is most famous for its monuments, the city’s cafés are part and parcel of its history and rich scenery… For many a year refuge to intellectuals, artists, writers and thinkers who found inspiration there, Parisian cafés have been immortalised in countless films and photos.

Cafés Richard and Paris… Paris and Cafés Richard… The perfect blend of “café”: a place, a moment and a flavour! From Saint-Germain-des-Prés to Montmartre via the Grands Boulevards, the unique bistro atmosphere offers a blend of emotion, culture and animated discussion. If every one of the thousands of cafés and restaurants in Paris has its own personality; they also have one point in common: Cafés Richard, a key factor contributing to their authenticity.

Cafés Richard is a traditional French-style coffee roaster. Evolving from the Maison Richard founded in 1892, it has remained a family business throughout the years. Pierre Richard runs the business today with his two children, Anne and Arnaud, combining the human values for which the company is known with the expertise of its specialists. Cafés Richard continues to inspire the confidence of its 20,000 clients, thus firmly holding onto its position as leader in France’s Horeca market, as well as with groups and organisations - despite increasing competition.

Their passion for espresso is closely linked with their expertise when it comes to carefully selecting the most quality beans and assuring the perfect roast. The tasting experience is the ultimate phase, essential for guaranteeing the most developed aromas and the right balance. This professionalism and know-how has given rise to prestigious coffees such as Florio and Perle Noire…

Cafés Richard has also been applauded for its wonderful range of classic and herbal teas. Traditional flavours and delicious innovations delight those who crave serenity and well-being, adding a sublime dimension to their treasured tea-drinking ritual.

In addition to its collection of exclusive blends and pure origin coffees, its classic and herbal teas, Cafés Richard provides chocolates, sugars and other sweet treats and accompaniment products, making the company a truly complete partner!
