French Truck Coffee
Coffee, coffee and more coffee! We never get tired of it in New Orleans–but maybe that’s because we are too amped up on coffee.
One of our favorite things to do in New Orleans is to take a stroll down Magazine Street and through the Garden District. One of the first coffee stops on this route? French Truck Coffee.
French Truck Coffee on Magazine Street is hard to miss–it’s a long, bright yellow container style building with brilliant blue trim around the door and windows. Only about a quarter of the inside is available for seating. That’s because French Truck Coffee is roasting their beans in-house.
Ariel, one of the baristas at French Truck Coffee, schooled us on the beans.
“We try to get all of our beans directly from various sources,” she says. “We get our beans from places like Brazil, Peru and Ethiopia. We actually make an effort to travel to these places.”
Getting beans from so many different places has opened some unique opportunities for guests and locals at French Truck Coffee.
“We do cupping events every month here,” says Ariel. “It’s a great way for people to try all of our different coffees and learn a little about the roasting process.”
And the coffee at French Truck Coffee is so good, other local businesses accept no substitute.
“We serve a lot of groceries and local restaurants in the area,” says Ariel. “We’re really proud of the fact that we’re a small company with such a large influence.”
If your tummy is rumbling, French Truck Coffee has a selection of bakery items.
“All of our bakery items are delivered daily from Gracious Bakery,” says Ariel.
