Orleans Coffee Exchange
|Roaster Location:||Kenner, Louisiana|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed.|
|Review Date:||November 2006|
Blind Assessment: Rather muted, mildly sweet, gingerbready aroma. Plumps up nicely in the cup, however: full-bodied, round, deep, with toasty caramel and fat, banana-toned fruit. Cleanly rich, sweet finish.
Notes: Orleans Coffee Exchange, aka Coffee Roasters of New Orleans, is a quality-oriented wholesale roaster that bills itself "New Orleans' Premier Micro-Roaster Since 1983." It survived the Katrina crisis through the passion and dedication of its owners and the loyalty of its customers and continues to produce outstanding and distinctive coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It : A comfortable, favorite-chair sort of coffee.
