Applied Arts Coffee
Meet Applied Arts Coffee, a brand new vendor set to join the Thursday Mid-City Market! After a temporary move to Portland in November to start Applied Arts Coffee, they are excited to be back in NOLA. Carefully sourced and roasted with sharp attention to flavor, their coffee is one of the day’s simple pleasures. Applied Arts Coffee offers a range of specialty grade, single origin coffees and house blends at varying roast levels – including two options from their family coffee farm in Quindio Colombia. Family owned and run by chef Baruch Rabasa, Applied Arts Coffee sources its beans from ethical and environmentally-conscientious importers before roasting them in small batches in New Orleans, LA. Alongside an appreciation for its refinement, it’s the everyday-ness of coffee that they celebrate - whether it be a savored morning brew, a midday pick-me-up, or the finishing touch of a delicious meal. Be sure to swing by Thursday market and give a warm welcome to Applied Arts Coffee!
The Crescent City Farmers Market operates weekly year-round throughout New Orleans. The CCFM hosts 70+ local small farmers, fishers, and food producers, and more than 150,000 shoppers annually.
