Luxe Coffee Reads & Views (Vol 9) from Caffé di Artisan

Here is the latest instalment of our Luxe Coffee Reads & Views - carefully curated for you. We start off with a fascinating piece on how as the customers for Parisian Haute Couture are internationalising, so is the designer catchment area with Asian designers making a big impact. Read it along with your own contribution to international diversity - a cup of exquisite Caffé di Artisan coffee. You will be spoilt for choice: maybe we could tempt you with Raro from the Colombian highlands or the Asmara with its savory-sweet body from Ethiopia or the Nilgiri Organique from a 200 year old plantation in the Blue Mountains...and many others.

The other articles are equally interesting from a fly-on-the-wall peek into the life of the richest man in the world to how we can be misled by purveyors of 'alternative facts' aka lies in this post-truth world. Read on....
