French Quarter Style Coffee House - different fare than traditional midwest coffee houses. Baristas are well-trained but could use improvement. I can do some latte art but would like to improve.

Midwest, to start...Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, maybe Wisconsin and/or Ohio

Sold lumber wholesale for 12 years...couldn't do Corporate America anymore...next logical step was coffee, right? Love New Orleans, so brought a little here to South Bend, IN.
