Community Coffee review and giveaway

Community Coffee Company has sold the finest fresh-roasted premium coffee in Louisiana since Henry Norman “Cap” Saurage began selling coffee out of his country store in 1919. Today, Community® coffee can be found in grocery and convenience stores, offices, hotels and some of the best restaurants throughout the South. It is also served daily at CC’s Community Coffee House® locations in Baton Rouge, Lafayette and New Orleans, and is available worldwide through CommunityCoffee.com. Community Coffee Company is the largest family owned and operated retail coffee brand in America.

My Thoughts…

I’m what you call a dedicated coffee drinker! If I’m a fan of a specific brand or flavor, I’ll continue to support, recommend, and drink that brand of coffee religiously. The number of specialty coffees that I favor can be counted on one hand and I’m pleased to let you know that

I was sent several blends of Community Coffee Companies to review such as , Café Special® Ground 32oz., Bread Pudding Coffee 12oz,Breakfast Blend 120z, along with a limited time  Mardi Gras Gift Set which included Carnivale Cake flavored coffee, beaded necklaces, and a tumbler which reads Laissez les bon temps rouler! (translated: Let the good times roll).

I appreciate the work that has gone into the Community Coffee Company website.You can easily read reviews by others concerning certain blends of coffee as well as submit you own. I found that you can purchase most flavors in either ground or whole bean format. The information on each coffee is top notch in describing  how much acidity and body each blend holds so you can find a flavor that suits your taste.

Overall Thoughts…

I’m thrilled with all that I’ve discovered about the Community Coffee Company. They will most assuredly be my first stop for coffee for myself as well as for gift to those close to me. With the wide variety of gifts at affordable prices you couldn’t ask for more. Oh, and for those tea drinkers out there, it may put you at peace of mind of mind in knowing that Community Coffee Company also offers teas in several flavors in tea bags and one cup teapods.I am having a hunch that I’ll be trying out their Earl Grey blend in the future.

Note that the Community Coffee Company is all about giving back, for instance, You can purchase  any “Military Match Gift Boxes” and they’ll send 4 more bags free with each other! Only to overseas FPO/AE addresses!
