Community Coffee Review & Giveaway!!

ATTENTION ALL COFFEE LOVERS!!
Community Coffee is a great company with tons of different coffee and tea products to choose from! They kindly let me choose a product to review, so I chose the Gourmet Flavor Coffee Lovers Gift Set. My mom is the “coffee queen” in our house, so this set was great for her:) This set came neatly packaged in a wooden crate with four bright bags of coffee.
Mmmm...
The four flavors are Cinnamon Roll, Pecan Praline, French Vanilla, and Hazelnut. (All flavors are a medium-dark roast.) My mom decided on first opening the Cinnamon Roll flavor, and she said it was very good with a hint of cinnamon. (Also for storage, she likes to keep her coffee in the freezer.)
Is your mouth watering yet?  LOL!
 So for all you coffee lovers, this is the perfect match for you, and should last you awhile.  Well, maybe:)  Or this would be a wonderful gift for grandparents or anybody else you know who enjoys 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 our mission has never changed – to share our passion for great coffee with our customers.”
Community Coffee is offering one of my readers a Gourmet Flavor Coffee Lovers Gift Set {$34.95 value!} of their own!!
