The Bartlett and Dodge families, incorporated as the American Coffee Company, moved that famous coffee to 800 Magazine Street in 1941. In this post-Katrina age of fascination with our city and its history, they recognized the strength of our 117 years of calling New Orleans home. Our customers are fiercely loyal. It is enjoyed in the iconic restaurants of a city known for its great cuisine.
