When you say coffee has soul, not everyone will understand. When you explain local roasting, some people won’t listen. When you tell the story of a single origin roast, some won’t care. They don’t get it. We make coffee for those who do. A cup of coffee isn’t just about flavor or energy. It’s much more. It’s about craftsmanship – the story of a skilled farmer working towards a better life. It’s about being rooted – staying true to the spirit of New Orleans. It’s about hospitality – treating each guest like a neighbor, because they are one. It’s the experience people gather around. It’s what inspires us to do better each day. It’s the warmth that goes into each cup. This is the soul of coffee and this is what makes PJ’s different.
