…coffee beans, that is. Just bought beans from Orleans Coffee Exchange, located at 1001 Industry Drive off of Airline Drive west of the airport in Kenner. Great prices compared to mail order–if you’re local, you can call ahead and they’ll have your order waiting when you arrive. Save the shipping charges and pick it up in person. The espresso italia roast brews to a great, low-acid, roman-style mellow cup.
Listen to an NPR story on Orleans Coffee Exchange, whose owners returned to NOLA after Katrina and expanded the business.
