About French Market Coffee
New Orleans has always embraced those who are passionate about what they do. Those who take initiative. Those who take the extra time and energy to do things the right way rather than the easy way. The Bartlett and Dodge families, who started French Market Coffee in 1890, were exactly such people. There, in New Orleans' bustling French Market, they sold the first cans of their rich, carefully roasted coffee. Then, like now, the French Market brought together an inspiring group of entrepreneurs, artists, and musicians all of whom were as deeply passionate about their work as we are about ours. Although a few things have changed over our 120-plus year history, our dedication to great coffee has not. To this day we continue to roast the choicest Arabica beans and specially grind them to create the quintessential New Orleans coffee, right here in the city we call home. And as a part of New Orleans' culinary heritage, we have a tradition to uphold - just like the city's finest restaurants, many of which have been serving French Market Coffee for over 100 years.

About the National Food & Beverage Foundation
