Topic: Home Roasters/Good Coffee in New Orleans (6 msgs / 192 lines)
1) From: Demian Ebert
Morning-
I have to go to New Orleans for two weeks of work starting on Monday Dec 3.
Obviuously I'm packing plenty of my own coffee. Are there decent coffee
places that can be recommended? I don't know how much free time I'll have,
but if there are homeroasters who'd like to meet for a cup, that could be
cool too.
Thanks
Demian

Demian,
Packing plenty of your own coffee is a really good idea as I have not found
any great coffee places around New Orleans.  I live on the Gulf Coast of
Mississippi, work in downtown New Orleans (one block from the Superdome) and
would love to meet you if you have the opportunity.
Respectfully,
Eddie

When it comes to cafe au lait, a huge platter of beignets just out of  
the fryer (and I am careful not to sneeze or wear black) and a good  
street musician or two within earshot, I tend to cut New Orleans  
coffee places considerable slack.

I agree with Sandy  - Cafe au Lait + beignets is the ticket.  Expect 
to get powered sugar all over your coat, tie and pants..  Check out 
Cafe du Monde in the French Quarter, near the statue of Andrew Jackson.

Beignets... Now >why< did you have to mention those????  (grin) Mmmm.... =

Thinking of another trip to NO...

Thanks for the tips. I'll see if the schedule allows time for location of
beignets. It could turn into one of those hotel-office-hotel repeat for 10
days trips.
Plenty of homeroast will be packed along with a grinder, filters, cones, and
hot pot. The airlines love my luggage.
