The New Orleans Barista Social Club is a volunteer-driven organization aimed at building community and generating awareness of specialty coffee throughout New Orleans and the surrounding area. We offer coffee professionals and consumer enthusiasts the opportunity to network, learn and access industry resources.
In addition to hosting monthly events, the Barista Social Club provides information and resources pertinent to the professional barista and coffee enthusiasts. To stay up to date on activities and information, visit our blog.
As a volunteer organization, we rely on the contributions of coffee professionals and businesses. This website features many perspectives within the New Orleans coffee community. If you would like to contribute in any way, please don’t hesitate to let us know.
The Barista Social Club was founded in January 2015 by Aleece Langford and Jonathan Riethmaier, though it is a continuance of the effort of many coffee professionals who sought to elevate the presence of specialty coffee and the professional barista in New Orleans. Learn our history here.
