Front Page Coverage from the New Orleans Advocate
We had some terrific coverage from the New Orleans Advocate, including Jonathan’s hand pouring our Mammoth Espresso Tonic on the front page!! Whoo! It was a great feature, and it touched on some important points that we’ve been putting out there for a while.
“According to Jonathan Riethmaier, the owner of Mammoth Espresso and co-founder of the New Orleans Barista Social Club, these clients favor cafes that allow the wealth to trickle down to the farmer who grows the coffee beans — an attitude that improves farming communities and the quality of coffee.”
It’s true, we love to talk about where coffee comes from and how that plays a part in the cost to the consumer. We have a high standard for how the growing communities are impacted by the coffee we serve, and we believe that coffee production must be environmentally and financially sustainable.
The Advocate also sheds light on the Mammoth Espresso name:
“Even though espresso is a minuscule drink, it can be a really big deal,” said Riethmaier. The shop’s moniker is based on this seeming paradox.

The Gambit Highlights Mammoth Tea, Pour Overs
The folks at The Gambit have a nice feature of Mammoth Espresso. Writer Will Coviello highlights our Seraphim pour over bar, as well as the attention to detail we put into our tea program.
“Mammoth uses Seraphim brewing system, which brews individual cups to order in three minutes in a fashion similar to pour-over coffee. The staff also pays close attention to teas, steeping different teas at appropriate temperatures and times”
In fact, our Seraphim system is a pour over, it’s simply automated and custom dialed to bring you the perfect cup of coffee, each and every time.
We’re particularly happy to have our tea program highlighted. We don’t mention this enough, but every tea (that’s 15 unique teas) on our menu is dialed in according to: a) dose, b) water temperature and c) steep time.

Mammoth Espresso Opens this Thursday
This Thursday, March 24, Mammoth Espresso will open its doors to friends, neighbors and the coffee and tea drinking public of New Orleans. We’re excited to share our story and our offerings with you, and to be a part of the vibrant landscape of New Orleans coffee. Come by, kick the tires a bit and see what we’re all about. We’re open everyday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 821 Baronne Street in the Warehouse District.
At Mammoth Espresso, we brew espresso drinks, coffee and teas – all by the cup. It’s our philosophy that each drink we prepare should be crafted with care, intention and to the best of our ability. Our menu includes a range of traditional, Italian-inspired espresso drinks, along with coffees and teas from small producers around the world. Here on the homepage you can get a sense of what we offer.
Our coffee is roasted by Madcap Coffee, a highly regarded specialty coffee roaster, not only in terms of product quality, but in their approach to building relationships with farmers and farming communities. We’re excited to share their coffees and the stories of these coffee producers with you. For tea, we’ve partnered with Jojo Tea, who has supplied us with some of the most beautiful and sought after teas in the world.
Mammoth Espresso serves delectable treats from our friends at Scout Bakery, a New Orleans-based small batch baker who offers a mix of traditional French pastries and original small bites that pair well with coffees and teas. We’ll also have chocolate bars from Acalli Chocolate, a terrific bean-to-bar chocolate maker who directly sources cacao for all of their products.
We’re a cozy shop focused on a handful of carefully crafted offerings. We’re delighted to turn years of dreams and ideas into Mammoth Espresso. This is an expression of our passion and curiosity, and we hope you dig it.
