In celebration of Mardi Gras, we take a story trip to New Orleans to try the iconic Café Du Monde chicory blend coffee. We imagine warm sunshine and street performers as we enjoy the origin tale of this New Orleans institution. Steph even busts out her FBI inspired Google skills in her attempts to track down the roaster of this coffee. She can't stop, won't stop and finds she just had to think like the days before Google to find her answers.
Listen to learn how Café Du Monde has survived since the Civil War with no changes to any part of their business model, with the exception of an ice machine, and how we feel about chicory in our coffee.
"It's all coming together now... Café Du Monde was founded by Lestat in 1862."
