FINALLY!

After years of searching for GREAT espresso in New Orleans, I finally found Velvet.  

You'd think -- given New Orleans history as the main port for coffee entering the US -- this wouldn't have been such a problem, but then, you'd be wrong.  Nothing even remotely close to the quality of the espresso I've had in every other major city in the country has been available . . . until Velvet.

They offer espresso (pulled on a Nuova Simonelli Aureila), siphon coffee and pourover, from roasters like Intelligentsia, Stumptown, and -- my favorite -- Verve.  The straight espresso and pourover I had were both excellent!

Can't speak to their baked goods, but I can't wait to go back on my next trip to NOLA.

A shame we can cross post on CG, as this would be great in our Cafe and Bean Reviews Forum.

I found another great espresso.  Spitfire Cafe in the Quarter on St Peter near the cathedral.  Had read about them on Yelp.  Nice people and a good cup.
