Community Coffee Review and Giveaway

*GIVEAWAY CLOSED, WILL ANNOUNCE WINNER SOON.


Hello Everyone!


I am hosting a giveaway for Community Coffee. You have the opportunity to win the Founder's Blend Premium Gift Set, with a retail value of $29.95!

Treat a loved one or yourself to a 12-oz. bag of our limited edition Founder’s Blend Gourmet coffee, a signature coffee scoop and a premium travel tumbler. It arrives in a branded Community Coffee burlap gift bag.
I had never tried Community Coffee, so I was very excited to try their product when it arrived at my home. The coffee was delicious, my mom especially loved it. What you have to do is grind the coffee first then enjoy. I was very impressed with the quality of their coffee. I gave my dad the tumbler to take to work, which he appreciated. The tumblers are very handy to carry your Community Coffee with.
Founder's Premium Gift Set

About Community Coffee:
For four generations, the Saurage family of Louisiana has owned and operated Community Coffee Company. In 1919, Henry Norman "Cap" Saurage discovered the secret of making this great-tasting coffee in his country store in Dixie, Louisiana, near Baton Rouge. He named his coffee "Community" in honor of his community of friends.


In 1924, he closed the store and converted his backyard barn into a coffee mill, using coffee beans purchased from a local roaster. In 1941, Cap's son H. Norman Saurage Jr. purchased the company's first coffee roaster, having decided that Community should roast its own coffee to ensure quality at every step. A roasting plant was built in Baton Rouge in 1946.

Over the years, Community Coffee Company would take countless steps to ensure the quality of its product. In 1955, the company began importing green coffee beans directly from coffee plantations in Brazil. In 1970, a new plant was built on the Mississippi River in Port Allen, Louisiana. In 1980, Community introduced the nation's first vacuum-sealed coffee package.

The first CC's Community Coffee House opened on the corner of Jefferson and Magazine Street in New Orleans in 1995. Dozens more opened during the 10 years that followed.

It's been more than 90 years since Cap Saurage founded Community Coffee Company, but their mission has never changed – to share their passion for great coffee with their customers.

A great legacy, a great coffee brand.
