What do they all have in common? Love really is their cup of tea.

It all starts with a good cup of coffee. You just have to ask. Except when you make a slip of the tongue… You asked the café to bring you a waiter? Hold on! Here’s one, served on a tray, Lutèce, 75, is thinking, as she reconnects with her first love. But will time have kept their shared memories fresh?

If you’re looking for someone as strong and full-bodied as a cup of espresso, look no further than Tom, the romantic cop. When he finds out that Régine is cheating on him, he strays too, just to get back at her before realizing that she didn’t actually do anything wrong. Ouch!

Then there’s the delightful Ava, an artist who hangs out in cafés all day, looking for inspiration as she sips iced tea. One day, she gets a commission to paint a movie star’s portrait. Her big break! But nothing goes according to plan, and though she was already counting her chickens, now it looks she should hold the champagne for a while.

A story full of laughter and tears, chocolate and a drop of cream.
