For the better part of two decades, Paris resisted the specialty coffee boom that swept the globe and earned a reputation for very bad coffee. The New York Times called it "ashy swill." Coffee aficionados asked "why does the coffee in Paris suck so bad?" And bloggers declared that "no self-respecting coffee drinker should have to subject themselves to overpriced Parisian sludge served with a sneer."

Now a passionate band of coffee rebels are opening hip little indie shops across the city, each of them determined to bring good coffee and a fresh vibe to the world's most celebrated café culture. And Paris Coffee Project sat down with each of them. A documentary series for people who love Paris, coffee, and young visionaries willing to risk it all for a dream, Paris Coffee Project strives to capture this revolutionary moment — the moment when New Wave cafés took Paris by storm.
