It’s been one year since Cherry Coffee Roasters opened shop in the Lower Garden District. What started as a popup at Stein’s Deli in 2013 has grown into two shops, each with its own personality, and each serving locally-roasted coffee.
A neighborhood needs more than just another coffee shop, says owner and coffee lover Lauren Fink. She had worked in the industry for 15 years and saw an opportunity with Cherry to bring her love for taste and flavor to others. “I love experiencing flavors. I find that experiencing food and drink is so special,” Fink said.
With Cherry Coffee Roasters, she explores roasting her own coffee and offering a full and fresh experience. “You don’t need a bunch of money, and you don’t have to go to many places to get a great experience, or a balance in flavor.”
