Community Coffee Coffee & Chicory Single Serve Cups - 12 Ct
Enjoy a longstanding New Orleans tradition. Popularized in France, our high-quality roasted chicory is sweet and flavorful. We then blend it with rich, roasted coffee to create the right balance of sweetness, spice and body when brewed. Experience it in the traditional “café au lait” style by adding steamed milk and sugar.
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. 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. Community Coffee Specialty L.L.C. is located in Baton Rouge, LA.
