Family Partnership Sees 55,000 Lbs of Community® Coffee Shipped to Military Heroes

Jan 06, 2015

Baton Rouge, La. – With the close of 2014, Community Coffee Company reaches a new landmark with more than 55,000 pounds of Community® coffee having been shipped to active-duty military personnel through its Military Match program since the program’s inception. This is only accomplished through a partnership with its customers.

“As a family-owned and operated company, we understand the difference family makes. That’s why our Military Match program is an amazing partnership with families to support their loved ones who are serving our country,” said Jodi Conachen, Community Coffee Company spokesperson.  “We believe every military serviceman and servicewoman should enjoy a rich, smooth cup of Community® coffee and we’re deeply honored to have partnered with families across the country to ship more than 55,000 pounds of Community® coffee to our military heroes.”

More than 2.2 million men and women serve in the U.S. military and approximately 400,000 are stationed abroad in one of the 150 countries U.S. military bases are maintained.  That’s 2.2 million reasons Community Coffee Company supports U.S. military personnel by doubling orders to ensure servicemen and servicewomen get a cup of home.

Customers purchase four bags or boxes of Community® coffee from CommunityCoffee.com for those serving, and the company matches the order with four additional bags or boxes of Community® coffee, ships the extra four boxes or bags at its cost, and sends a total of eight bags or boxes of coffee plus a signature Military Match mug to the overseas (APO/FPO) or military base address of the customer’s choice.

Customers have the opportunity to choose one of their favorite blends including single-serve blends and flavors. Options include 12- or 16-ounces Dark Roast , 12- or 16-ounces Between Roast, 12- or 16-ounces Medium Roast, 12- or 16-ounces Coffee and Chicory, 13-ounces Decaffeinated, 18-count Dark Roast Single-Serve Cups, 18-count Café Special Single-Serve Cups, 18-count Breakfast Blend Single-Serve Cups, 18-count Café Special Decaf Single-Serve Cups, 18-count Variety Blends Single-Serve Cups or 18-count Variety Blends Flavors Single-Serve Cups.  Community Coffee Company encourages at least 30 business days for an order to arrive to some overseas destinations.
