Hey y’all. I’m Jonathan & this is my shop.
I can’t remember the last day I didn’t have a cup, mug, pot or bucket of coffee.
I’m not fancy about it - I can’t give you tasting notes & I usually brew my coffee in a cheap Mr. Coffee machine.
It’s a small joy for me. It’s a ritual for me. It’s a community thing. It’s a “hey, lets grab a coffee” conversation thing. It’s the most powerful drink on earth.
And Louisiana is the greatest place on earth.
I’ve lived all over the place, I’m in Los Angeles now, but I spent most of my life in South Louisiana - From the time I was a little kid, I knew that it was a special place. More importantly than being from there — I can confidently say, I am OF there. The culture, the hospitality, the generosity, the kindness, the courage and resilience… it is who I am. No matter where I have lived throughout my life - Louisiana has been where I call home — the place that has shaped me more than anywhere else.
Food and drink is a huge part of the Louisiana experience. It’s always been in my heart to create my own expressions of that culture. So here is the first of my many culinary adventures -- This is French ¼.
