THE STORY of FLAMJEAUX COFFEE 

OWNER/ROASTER : MARGOT 


"Flamjeaux is a manifestation of a dream that has been brewing for years. My 20 plus years in foodservice began in coffee as a General Manager of the flagship location of Community Coffee’s spinoff Gourmet Coffee House (CC’s) in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and where my love affair with coffee began. In some form or fashion, coffee seemed to follow me throughout my career with an ultimate curiosity about roasting. It seemed a natural progression, only backwards, as roasting is where it all begins. But for me, it is my hope that roasting is where it all ends as my last job doing something I love and about which I am very passionate."

"I hope you enjoy drinking Flamjeaux as much as I enjoy roasting it."

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

Flamjeaux Coffee Company got its name from the Flambeaux (flames in French) that are used by many Krewes as part of the parades and festivities of Mardi Gras season. Flambeaux were originally used in parades as a means to light the way of the route before lighting was available on floats and streets. As coffee is roasted over flame, it seemed a fitting name to weave in a New Orleans tradition to my coffee roasting business. To see more on the Flambeaux tradition go here and like me while you’re there!

 

Flamjeaux Coffee Company is locally owned and operated and serves the local communities of Mandeville, Covington and beyond.
