We would like to express our deepest thanks to all the following persons:

Michael for his very fine studio photos, his availability and his enthusiasm. Jean-Gabriel for listening to me so much, for his reactivity when we were setting up and updating our Internet site and for his so distinctive sense of humour. Marthe for her precious help every time we ask her and Gilles a faithful companion when searching for seashells, even at nightfall in mid-winter gales. Richard and Anna, Christophe and Nathalie for their faultless friendship and their always open ears ready to listen to our shell collectors’ tales. Côme, Claire and Mahaut faithful ambassadors. Sandrine and Hervé from “les Sables d’or” at Coutainville for their energy and keen interest and, of course, all our sales outlets, who have understood that “Grain de Café” is something more than “just a product” and who have joined the ever increasing circle – we hope – of lovers of nature, souvenirs and magnificent tales.
