Le Havre and coffee: a delicious history

The story began almost three centuries ago, in 1728, when 80 pounds of green coffee from the French West Indies were unloaded at the Le Havre docks.

Coffee took the cities by storm, especially Paris. But Le Havre, like many ports, was home to a cosmopolitan population that had a taste for the exotic. To meet this demand, a purveyor of drinks on the Grand-Quai (today the Quai de Southampton) styled himself the “Lord of Coffee” and started to sell varieties from India and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka).

Le Havre gradually became a key coffee centre and opened up to a burgeoning new economy.

Today, Le Havre is a certified port for Robusta coffee, and a large portion of the international market moves through its terminals, reputed for their impeccable quality.
