I recently traveled to New Orleans with my family and had the pleasant experience visiting two coffee houses. The first, I would like to share with you now. Nestled in the side of the Ace Hotel, is the newly opened Stumptown Coffee. Fond memories of my first and only Stumptown experience caused some anticipation when I heard the New Orleans location had just opened. It was 5 years ago when I visited the East Pine Street Stumptown location in Seattle. Since then, they have been purchased by Peet’s Coffee in a move that shocked the third wave coffee industry. Stumptown is recognized as a leader of hand-crafted coffee drinks. Honestly, I had never seen a bottled cold-brew coffee until I walked into Stumptown back in Seattle.
