Coffee has played an integral role in Louisiana history since the early 19th Century. In 1802, 1,438 bags of coffee arrived at the Port of New Orleans; just 50 years later, the city imported more than 530,000 bags, according to the Louisiana State Museum. The Port of New Orleans quickly became a port of choice for Latin American coffee planters because of its enviable position at the bottom of the Mississippi Valley and its ability to receive goods from the Caribbean and South and Central America.
