one third of all the coffee in North America lands first on the docs of the Crescent City. Savor a cup of coffee almost anywhere in North America and you'll taste New Orleans. Naturally, the largest coffee roasting plant in the world is located here too. Every cup of coffee PJ's best represents our commitment to the legacy and culture of the Crescent City. We travel the globe to hand-select only the finest coffee beans - from Sumatra to Ethiopia, from Colombia to Kenya - everywhere the best coffee grows. Plucked be hand at the peak ripeness, the fruits of the Coffea Aribica bush are transported to mills where the beans are expertly removed, dried and hand-sorted before shipping to our artesian roasters. The "PJ" in our name stands for Phyllis Jordan, our founder who opened her fist coffee house over two decades ago. She's oneof the pioneers of gourmet coffee - her idea: to create unique coffee blends and roast the beans in small batchs - the same way we do it today in our roasting facility not far from Bourbon Street.
