A coffee shop in the Old Quarter of Paris that dates back to the 18th century is being dubbed the “world’s oldest” in the history of coffee, with a team of researchers claiming to have found evidence of its existence in the city’s ancient city centre.
The cafe, named The Coffeehouse, is situated on the edge of the old French Quarter, and has been a favourite spot for the locals for centuries.
However, despite the name and its unique location, it is the oldest coffee bar in the world.
The Coffee House is said to have been established in 1794 by the American, John Taylor.
A year later, the American entrepreneur was granted a patent for a device to brew coffee by the French-American entrepreneur, Jean Baptiste Cresson, who had a reputation for innovation.
The device had two cups of coffee with a lid, which he then added to the bottom of the cup to make the liquid more dense.
It was only in 1896 that Mr Taylor’s invention was patented.
However he passed away before the patent was finally granted.
The team behind the coffee shop has used a team from the University of Oxford to make a digital reconstruction of the cafe.
The reconstruction of The Coffee of Paris was made using images from the original plans drawn up by Mr Taylor.
The replica, which is a digital model, is a combination of digital images and a digital map of the city centre taken by the team.
The map has been digitally enhanced to match the original original plan and has also been digitally scanned and re-created to recreate the coffee bar.
The coffee shop was a favourite for many generations of the French people, according to the team, who say the café’s owners were well aware of the fact that it was considered to be one of the most historic places in the French Quarter.
The original owners, who were French, were well versed in the art of brewing coffee and the process of making coffee and were known to have great knowledge of their surroundings, the team said.
“So it was only natural that they would make a coffee bar that was in the area where the old coffee shop once stood.” “
The team say they have managed to create a digital replica of the original plan that has been carefully crafted to match all of the historic details. “

“We’ve got all the information we need, and we’ve been able to create the digital replica to recreate that historic and very authentic location in a way that it’s not only recognisable to the public, but it’s also a real and authentic part of Paris.”
The project is part of a series of projects that will be launched by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to commemorate the centenary of the establishment of The French Quarter in the year 2045.
The department is set to unveil the National Museum of French History at the centre of the Old Port of Paris on June 18.
The Department for Cultural, Media, and Sport said: “The department is delighted to partner with the University, which has produced a digital version of the plan for The Coffeebar, on the centennial of its establishment in the quarter.”
The digital reconstruction has been painstakingly crafted to create an authentic and lifelike recreation of the location in the original, original plan.
“This is a unique and rare piece of information about a building that has survived to this day and, indeed, the entire history of the Quarter has been preserved in this way.”
It is a testament to the history and the legacy of The Old Quarter that this information has survived, even as the city continues to grow and change.
“This project will be one part of the DCMS centenary celebrations, celebrating the legacy and the history that is left behind in the new Quarter, a new place for people to come and spend time, which will hopefully inspire new visitors to revisit this historic and unique part of France.”
The coffee bar is one of four in the Paris area that have been chosen by the city for the centenaries.
They are The Coffee Bar of the Royal, the Coffee Bar de la Bastille, the Café de la Chapelle, and the Café du Ville.
“Paris is very much a hub for cultural activity and, of course, it’s the centre for the French nation and the world,” said Stephen Breen, Director of DCMS.
