In 1721, Louis XV's favourite, Madame de Pompadour, was born. Her coffee mill, exhibited in the Louvre Museum, inspired chef Alain Ducasse to create the 1721 blend. An initiatory journey, from the discovery of coffee in Ethiopia to Brazil with the Bourbon variety, the coffee of the royal court, the most cultivated in the world to this day, to finish in Panama with the Geisha variety, considered as the jewel of coffees.
It was during a visit to the Louvre Museum's Objets d'Art department that star chef Alain Ducasse discovered Madame de Pompadour's coffee grinder, the work of Parisian jeweller and goldsmith Jean Ducrollay, which was to inspire him to create "1721, the Louvre café".. This mill wonderfully evokes the use of coffee in full expansion in the 18e century as well as the refinement of the goldsmith's objects ordered by Madame de Pompadour.
From this visit was born '1721, the Louvre café'.,an exclusive blend born of a meeting and the fruit of a traditional yet resolutely modern know-how.
