Not long ago we started looking around for ways to help support the PeeDeeFoodie.com website and podcast. Of course, our Community Sponsors are in the forefront of that support. Their commitments to our goals of promotion of the local food, foodies, and food culture of our region, to us, is unquestioned. Beyond that support we began to search for companies that truly engaged their communities and offered great value for money. It didn’t take us long to find one that struck a chord here in the Foodie household, Community Coffee. In fact, we only had to look as far as our kitchen counter.
Community Coffee is a well-known, well-loved brand. It’s the brand that Mrs. Pee Dee Foodie has savored each and every morning for years. It’s a tasty and hearty reminder of her roots near Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Today, because we’ve settled here in the Pee Dee of South Carolina and it’s not available in local stores, shipments are mailed directly to our home once every two months. It’s Coffee Christmas each and every time. That process is made easy by our membership in their very popular Coffee Club. More on that later.
Her favorite is the premium Breakfast Blend. She’s also known for brewing up batches of Hazelnut or Pecan Praline when the mood strikes. Seasonally, Carnivale Cake is a tribute to the Mardi Gras traditions of family, revelry, and great food. Yes, Mardi Gras is traditionally not what most people know it to be. Virtually all regular and flavored blends, many more beyond these, are available in whole bean and ground versions. They have some truly unique gift ideas as well, including canisters, tumblers, grinders, and baskets of products with combinations sure to tickle the fancy of even the most picky of caféphiles.
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 on the north edge of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He named his coffee “Community” in honor of his community of friends.”
“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.”
Commitment to Quality and Satisfaction
Community Coffee stands by its 100% satisfaction guarantee. Everything they do has to be as good as its coffee. They are committed to delivering the highest quality products and superior service to their customers. If any products fail to live up to your expectations, they will happily exchange them, replace them, or refund your money. We have never had any issue with orders or billing.
Each package is marked with a recommended brew-by date. If the coffee is brewed by this date, it’s guaranteed fresh. After the package has been opened, it should stay fresh for about two weeks if sealed in an airtight container.
Many of their bags contain valves (also known as nitrogen-flush containers) that allow the wonderful aroma of coffee to be enjoyed without opening the bag itself. The valve keeps oxygen from entering the bag and causing the coffee to lose freshness. This also keeps the bag from opening prematurely due to excessive pressure.
