New Orleans’ major coffee roasting company, PJ’s Coffee crafted a customized blend for the Four Seasons Hotel in New Orleans. Currently the blend is available for the room service and at private events. The next move will be to pack in single-serve cups and pre-stocked in the hotel’s rooms. 

“The addition of Four Seasons is monumental for New Orleans, an international tourist destination,” says Peter Boylan, president of Ballard Brands, in a press release. Ballard is the hospitality and foodservice company that owns PJ’s Coffee. “As a company born in the city over 40 years ago, just a few blocks away from the hotel, this partnership allows us to deliver our fresh, flavorful coffee to people all across the world.”

PJ’s Coffee roastmaster Felton Jones crafted  the Four Seasons Signature Blend by combining two coffee beans from a farm in Honduras. They are roasted separately to “perfect the natural flavors of each component.” 

“This partnership with PJ’s Coffee is an obvious and natural fit for us,” says Mali Carow, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans. “Their great history here in New Orleans and quality coffee will be appreciated and enjoyed by our guests from New Orleans and around the world.”

The Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans is a historic 33-story, 407 feet (124 m)-tall skyscraper designed by noted architect Edward Durell Stone, located at 2 Canal Street in the Central Business District of New Orleans. It was formerly known as the "ITM Building", i.e., the International Trade Mart, it was also known as the World Trade Center New Orleans, and housed numerous foreign consulates and the headquarters for the Port of New Orleans.

PJ’s Coffee, which has more than 130 operating locations nationwide, also provides coffee to the Royal Sonesta Hotels, Hotel Monteleone, the Windsor Court Hotel and the Roosevelt New Orleans by Waldorf Astoria.
