General

Why have you decided to move it to 2022?


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations have elected to postpone their events. To ensure that we can safely operate, be respectful of cast schedules, our venue of choice and our convention colleagues, we have elected it is best to postpone Earp Expo to Summer 2022 to ensure the event it safest for everyone.




Earp Expo isn't until May, why have you deciede to postpone so soon?


In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are heeding a formal statement issued by Mayor Cantrell regarding New Orleans city closures and following guidance from the CDC and the WHO to discontinue all operation of mass events until the virus is contained. New Orleans COVID-19 cases have recently spiked and the city is under a stay-at-home order indefinitely. We likely will not be able to operate and must consider the health and safety of our special guests and attendees as our highest priority.





FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

We have two locations. Our first location is at 1766 West 95th Street within the 95th Street Metra Station. Our second location is at 9907 South Walden Parkway right next to the 99th Street Metra Station.




What do you serve?


We are committed to serving you only the best! We provide all of the coffee shop classics - brewed coffee, espresso based drinks, loose leaf tea, and pastries - but we are committed to crafting those classics carefully and correctly. Our equipment is high grade. Our product is high quality. Our process is tried and tested each morning. All to ensure that we serve a thoughtful, consistent product. Coffee: We are partners with and serve Intelligentsia, the coffee roasting company based in Chicago that introduced the concept of Direct Trade to the industry.

Bakery: Our pastries are made fresh each morning and sourced from Laine's Bake Shop - a local bakery.




Do you have parking?


95th Street: There is a pay to park lot next to the station largely in place for commuters. Additionally, there are several free 1 hr. parallel parking spots right next to this lot. 99th Street: There is free parking available along Walden Parkway.




Do you have a dining room?


95th Street: Because of our location - a free standing kiosk within the station itself - we function primarily as a “grab & go” amenity for commuters. Most will likely stroll in, hop to the line, grab their beverage, & be on their way. The station is spacious, well lit by large windows, & beautiful. There are original benches within the station which can be used for seating. Additionally - We have brought in some lovely solid oak tabletops paired with vintage fiberglass chairs and bar seating! 99th Street: Yes! We have plenty of room for you to come in and linger for a while with friends or set up to knock out some remote working.




What are your average wait times?


Our wait times vary based on the schedule of the train and the flow of traffic. We strongly recommend that you carve out time in your morning routine to visit! Our location within the station is convenient, but quality cannot be rushed. Espresso based drinks (cappuccinos, lattes, etc.) take approximately 45 seconds to 1 minute to make. The barista must first pull, weigh, and extract the shot; then steam the milk; and - finally - complete the pour. ***Please note: If there are orders for our barista to complete before your own, the wait time will be longer. ***See "What is your train policy?" for more information.
