      Do you want a quality roaster for . . . . .
      espresso?
      drip?
      coffee w/chicory?

      For the first two, I've found much better roasters elsewhere. Indeed, I have not found a roaster in New Orleans worth ordering from, and I order beans from roasters all over the US.

      The only place I've found that pulls rock-solid shots of straight espresso is La Divina Gelateria -- with locations in both the Quarter and the Garden District.

      Cheers,
      Jason

        Try Me, a coffee roaster located in the Marigny, has the best coffee in my opinion. They sell it at Refuel and I think Fair Grinds also.

          Speaking of coffee, has anyone been to the Orange Couch in the marigny? We passed by on Mardi Gras day and it looked cool inside.
