Caffeine clip: La Divina Gelateria

La Divina Gelateria's custom espresso is roasted and blended locally by the Coffee Roasters of New Orleans (and a little help from La Divina's owner, Carmelo) and is widely believed to be the best espresso blend in town. One sip and you just might agree...

I like la Divina's house blend, but I like Orleans Coffee Roasters' espresso crema blend a tiny bit more.

As an out of towner, I love going to la Divina (mostly uptown). However, many would argue that more of the coffee flavor would shine through (even in milk) if the roast was lighter. Also, I've often witnessed some fundamental steps to the espresso process missing (wiping the basket and flushing the group before dosing and pulling a shot, pulling 20-30 second shots). These problems are not at all unique to La Divina, but if the claim of "one of the best" coffee spots is to be lived up to, inconsistencies in preparation and roast levels should be considered. Otherwise, it is a great place that I will continue to visit.
