In addition to the fantastic cuisine, Louisiana has a great selection of locally-made coffees. In fact, coffee first came to North America by way of New Orleans back in the mid-1700′s. Some of the most popular Louisiana brands include French Market Coffee, and Cafe du Monde’s chicory blends, and Community Coffee.
New Orleans-based French Market Coffee specializes in bold chicory blends and flavored coffees. Making coffee since 1890, French Market Coffee is a centuries-old staple that is enjoyed by coffee lovers across the state and by customers at New Orleans’ finest restaurants.
Cafe du Monde, the iconic NOLA eatery famous for their savory beignets, serves up a delicious, chocolatey blend of coffee and chicory, a mixture which was developed by the French during their civil war. Since coffee was scarce during those times, they added chicory to add more body and flavor to the brew. Cafe du Monde’s coffee is traditionally served Au Lait (mixed half and half with hot milk), but it’s also delicious served black!
Community Coffee is the largest family-owned retail coffee brand in the U.S. The company grew from a small country store in Baton Rouge, and has achieved so much success since its humble beginnings that it is now the State Coffee of Louisiana.
Here at The Stockade, we exclusively serve Community Coffee. We hope you’ll come enjoy a cup over breakfast with us!
