Current stock: 0

This 30ml glass bottle of Herbin Cafe des Iles fountain pen ink is elegantly labeled and the bottle has an integrated pen rest. Cafe des iles is a light brown color, a reminder of the great coffee smell enjoyed at the terrace of a cafe in a far away island. Herbin uses all natural dyes in their fountain pen inks, which is reflected in the very neutral pH of the inks. The inks are created to be non-toxic, and smooth flowing in your fountain pen.

Cafe des Iles

Love this ink! Service was fast and problem free, and I look forward to purchasing more colors from Anderson Pens.

Good, but a Little Hard to Clean

The color is similar to Omas Sepia, but just a little darker. It shades well. But there are two trade-offs, which are not turn-offs here: (1) the ink took a little longer to clean out of a Noodler's ebonite Konrad, and (2) there were tiny bits of brown in the bottom of the waste water after the flush, which may be due to the natural products used by J. Herbin. To this buyer, this is not a big deal (it's an old company!), but to some who don't have the patience, and may be a little paranoid about their pens, this may be a deal-breaker.
