About Decatur Espresso

Decatur Espresso located in New Orleans, Louisiana is an innovative espresso products and service company aimed at providing high quality espresso products to the food service industry. Our clients include national restaurant chains, cafes, hotels, bookstores, hospitals, and hundreds of independently owned restaurants and specialty coffee businesses. Decatur Espresso began operations in 1991, as New Orleans exclusive importer of Italy’s highly touted Faema brand espresso machine. We have since grown into a thriving business with an expanded product line and an established reputation that spans the country.

When we entered the world of espresso, we knew the times ahead would be challenging, exciting and fun. The years have been all of those things and so much more. Espresso drinks and coffeehouses have now become a way of life and we are pleased to have been a part of it. Our commitment is to provide superior products, unmatched service, first-rate training and ongoing support to you, our customer. It is this focus on quality and our commitment to excellence that has earned us our reputation. We believe in training our clients not only in the operation of the espresso equipment, but in the art of creating the drinks that have made the espresso business so successful.

Our equipment line now includes Bunn, Faema, Frankie, Nouva Simonelli, La Marzocco, Rio and freestanding custom espresso carts. Our Product lines now include Lavazza premium brand espresso and coffee, Torani Italian syrups and sauces, and Big Train frozen drink mixes. Our services include coffeehouse consultation, restaurant staff training and technical support and service for all espresso and coffee beverage systems.

We thank you for visiting and look forward to helping you enjoy the benefits of the espresso business.
