The River Road Story
Our Very Own Once Upon a Time:
From our humble beginnings, coffee has always been an integral part of our family life. We have always known how important a great cup of coffee is to the quality of one’s day, and you will feel right at home with every sip of River Road Coffees.
Stanislaus and Marie Melancon began every day with a hot and steamy cup of coffee. Mrs. Melancon, known as “Mam Laus” by customers and friends, made sure everyone in the house enjoyed a perfect cup of coffee everyday. One morning, as they were enjoying some of their own quality brew, an idea occurred to the Melancons. They realized the power of family and friends coming together to share special times over a great cup of coffee, and that they had the ability to provide this experience for folks all over town. Soon, the couple and their small country coffee shop became a local tradition for good times and great coffee.
Mr. “Laus” carried a cup of his favorite dark roast, known as “strong brew,” around with him as he went about his daily duties. Mrs. Melancon preferred a fresh morning cup of a smooth medium roast. Many years have gone by since this couple planted the beans of River Road Coffees, and now new generations of the Melancon family are capturing the authentic coffee Southern Louisianans have grown to love.
We are proud to select, blend, roast, package and distribute the time-honored tradition of River Road Coffees in and around the Baton Rouge area. Our coffee is specially blended to maintain the same quality flavors that Papa and Mam Laus enjoyed with their family and friends each day.
