In 1978, master blender and roaster René Monnier had a bold vision – to bring the decadence of Parisian café culture into people’s homes. Inspired by the luxury world emerging around him, René was driven by a desire to push boundaries. In a country where good food and wine are highly celebrated, he believed that coffee should be no exception. His extensive years crafting the finest coffee, combined with delicate finishing and unique sense of French art de vivre, saw René’s vision become a reality. CARTE NOIRE was born. René Monnier’s vision is still at the heart of CARTE NOIRE today, as we strive to maintain his ambition, passion and exemplary standards by producing the finest coffee that leaves a lasting impression.
This passion for excellence and the meticulous blending of the best beans reveal the finest aromas.
