Every cup of coffee is a world traveler. The coffee you drink each day—perhaps even right now, as you read these words—is a miracle of global commerce, import and export, artisan cultivation and careful, attendant production at every step of the chain. But sometimes our urge to connect with coffee makes world travelers of us all. That’s why today we’re hopping an international flight, with a minimal layover and cheeky connecting shuttle, all the way to Marseille, France to check out the latest location of Deep Coffee. Sprudge readers may recall Deep’s absolutely stunning refurbished newsstand cafe, featured in a previous edition of our Build Outs of Coffee series. Well today, we’re taking—can you believe it—an even deeper look at Deep Coffee, checking out their newest coffee bar.
Let’s get deep, shall we?

Introduce yourself to our readers—tell us about your cafe!
This is the third location for Deep, after our main shop and a refurbished newsstand. We are now launching a coffee stand in a new indoor farmer market (first of its kind in Marseille) and we also built a proper baking lab in that space so we can serve fresh in house pastries all day.
What equipment do you use in your shop?
Which roaster or roasters do you serve?
Deep Coffee, as we have our roasting facility located nearby.
What is the neighborhood like where you’re located? What’s some other cool stuff nearby?
Very vibrant, located to the old port, which is the center of Marseille and in a new indoor facility that houses food stands and farmer market.
What’s something cool or unique about your cafe you want folks to know?
We decked out our bar with state of the art coffee equipment and baking lab, so we can deliver fresh and well executed drinks and food.
