About PJ’s Coffee

Since its inception in 1978, PJ’s Coffee has set out to show that its coffee is the best in the business. Founded by Phyllis Jordan, a pioneer in the coffee industry, and owned and operated by New Orleans natives and brothers, Paul, Steven, and Scott Ballard since 2008, the company has stuck true to that mission and its New Orleans roots.

So why is PJ’s Coffee better? Because its Direct Trade coffee comes from the top 1% of Arabica beans, is made using superior roasting techniques in small batches and everyone at PJ’s is passionate about the art of coffeemaking. From its roasters to baristas to bakers, everyone understands that the ‘Soul of Coffee’ is how it brings people together.

It’s why PJ’s Coffee serves a wide variety of hot, iced, and frozen coffee beverages, as well as organic tea and fresh breakfast pastries, including its New Orleans-style beignets. PJ’s Original Cold Brew™ Ice Coffee is brewed daily using a special cold-drip process that protects the flavor and strength of the beans while producing a coffee that is two-thirds less acidic. PJ’s Velvet Ice® and Granita are frozen and blended drinks options that capture the distinct flavors of coffee or tea in a cold, smooth drink.
