While in Paris, I saw tourists of all nationalities, and merchants or vendors making open efforts to draw them in. And of course there were restaurants for every conceivable region. But we didn’t see anything specifically American — nor did we expect to — until we stumbled across this café on the Île de la Cité.
Which led to a question: is American coffee really all that different? My wife didn’t have any coffee in France (she’s quite prejudiced in favor of Portuguese coffee), and I don’t drink the stuff at all, so we were clueless. I’m wondering if anyone else can offer input. Is this an attempt to draw in American tourists, or are be others who would be attracted to American coffee — enough to make such advertising worth it?
