NEW ORLEANS French Market Coffee, New Orleans’ first coffee purveyor, today expands beyond its New Orleans home with the launch of two additional retail coffee products, which join the original coffee and chicory in the signature red can.
The company’s new retail line features restaurant blend dark roast, packaged in a blue can. The product is served in New Orleans’ finest restaurants, including Galatoire’s and Anoine’s. Decaf coffee and chicory, in the green can, is a full-bodied roast offering the experience of New Orleans chicory with less caffeine. Remaining true to its roots, French Market Coffee continues to use the original chicory provider that the company began working with in 1890.
“While respecting the rich traditions of our company’s past,” stated Jesyka Bartlett, director of marketing, “we are excited as we look to the future bringing the flavor of New Orleans beyond this resilient city.”
French Market Coffee, a family owned and operated business, has been a staple in New Orleans homes and restaurants for 117 years and has become more and more popular nationwide as Hurricane Katrina evacuees long for a taste of New Orleans.
