Like many things in South Louisiana, this coffee bar and ice cream lab comes with a bit of folklore and legend. It is said Dr. Bob Beans grew up somewhere in Europe where he learned the best brewing and freezing methods the world has ever known while being raised by monks that kept that secret since the 1600s. He eventually left the monastery and joined the International Cold Brew Coffee Institution of Amsterdam where also served as President of the Liquid Nitrogen Club.
There's a new coffee spot opening in Lafayette that's designed to impress the coffee connoisseur without intimidating the casual coffee drinker.
Oh, and it'll keep the kiddos and non-caffeinated folks happy, too, with everything from a nitrogen ice cream lab and robotic barista to a latte art printer and flash-frozen alcoholic beverages.
The franchisees behind Subzero Ice Cream’s Lafayette location are adopting a lab-themed approach to cold brew coffee with Professor Bob Bean’s Nitrogen Infused Coffee and Ice Cream Lab, set to open this year in the Costco-anchored Ambassador Town Center.
