Beautiful jewel toned capsules in self service cases which you put into a bag and then place on scales with sensors so that they know how many and which of the 21 flavors you bought as a member of this "club". My friend and her husband drink maybe 2 day and she bought enough for the month which cost 55 € (about $75 US). To ease the pain of purchase, all members get as many free espressos as they wish at their upstairs coffee bar. I chose the "Roma" a Trinidad bean with chocolate and didn't particularly care for it, but I did love the shortbread cookie that came with it:)
This fountain seemed to fit more in Egypt than Paris....
Coming to the Seine and seeing the Eiffel Tower, there was no question this was Paris, not Egypt:)
Even though it is September, the weather today was like Summer and so we sat on a terrace and enjoyed the view of life on the Left bank.
Paris has picked up a new American habit; they now have "Happy Hour" between 5-9 pm (people here eat late) and although food is usually not discounted (or even offered), drinks like Mumm Champagne was only 5 € (about $7 US)
