Steeped in Tradition

 

A Family-Made Difference

Since my great-grandfather founded Community Coffee Company in 1919, it's been family owned and family operated.

Today, we work with many of the same family-run farms we've worked with for generations, and we only use 100% select Arabica coffee beans. We see to it that they're roasted and blended, just the right way, using recipes perfected over 95 years. We personally taste our coffee every day, and enjoy it in our own homes.

We pore over every detail of our coffee at every step, so if it's not rich enough, or smooth enough, or bold enough, it doesn't get our family name. That devotion to quality is what makes every sip of our coffee so fresh, so flavorful and so good.

-Matt Saurage, Fourth Generation Owner

 

A New Generation


The late Norman Saurage III, our third generation owner, dedicated more than 60 years to Community Coffee Company. Norman grew the company tremendously all while staying true to our values and to our commitment to always make better coffee. In 2012, he stepped down as chairman to let his youngest son, Matt Saurage, carry the family company into the future.

 

Extended Family


Community Coffee is a company of familiar faces - both the familiar faces of employees who have worked here for decades, and the familiar faces of men and women whose parents had worked here before them. We think it's our focus on good values that has kept employees, partners and customers with us for decades, lifetimes and generations.

 

The Newest Members of Our Family


We're growing faster than ever. We continuously look for high performers that share in our values. We look for people who value quality, integrity, safety and building relationships to drive business. When everything aligns, we welcome them to our family with a tradition we call "My First Cup," their introduction to our obsession with coffee perfection.
