“We really wanted to celebrate this significant victory with everyone – especially our hometown – in a meaningful way,” said Paul Ballard. “As proud alumni, it was important to us to pay homage and express gratitude to our university and Alma Mater. Not only will this coffee can serve as a memento to remember the team’s achievement among students, alumni, fans and guests, it will also celebrate future successes at Tulane.”
The commemorative coffee can is available for purchase online, at PJ’s campus locations, at the Tulane Bookstore, and in select PJ’s locations.

About PJ’s Coffee
Phyllis Jordan, a pioneer in the coffee industry, founded PJ’s Coffee of New Orleans in 1978, and demonstrated that better beans, superior roasting techniques, and pure passion for the art of coffeemaking mattered. In 2008, the company was purchased by New Orleans natives and brothers, Paul, Steven, and Scott Ballard. PJ’s Coffee serves a wide variety of hot, iced and frozen coffee beverages using only the best quality Arabica coffee beans, as well as organic tea and fresh breakfast pastries. PJ’s Original Cold Brew™ Ice Coffee is brewed daily using a special cold-drip process that protects the flavor and strength of the beans, while producing a coffee that is two-thirds less acidic – a process and technique developed by its founder and used for more than 45 years at all PJ’s locations. Bags of whole bean coffee and single serve cups of PJ’s Coffee are available for sale in-store and online. With more than 175 operating stores, including four international locations, PJ’s Coffee continues to grow in the U.S. and abroad.
