100 Years, 100 Reasons

to Celebrate.

In honor of our Centennial year, we want to celebrate communities that inspire us. From the farmers that help ensure the quality of our coffee beans, to military service men and service women, runners, musicians, and many more. Let's raise a cup to the incredible communities of Community® coffee drinkers who are helping to usher in our next 100 years.

"My favorite Community Coffee memory of my Grandma and Grandpa starts when I was about 8 years old and continued for as long as I had them here. Sitting in their kitchen in Chauvin with the windows open, the sticky breeze blowing through the house, and my Grandma making me a cup of Community Coffee milk. I've loved coffee ever since. I can't wait to share this tradition with my grandchildren."

-Raegan C

"I treasure the memories of sitting around the kitchen table at my mother's home with my mother, grandmother and sister drinking a cup of Community Coffee and catching up with each other. My mother and grandmother are gone now. I plan to continue this tradition in the future with my twin granddaughters."

-Sheryl E

"My mom always brought me a cup of Community coffee to my room in the mornings as I was getting ready for high school. We both shared a love of your great coffee. I have lots of wonderful memories of the many happy coffee breaks we shared together. My mom sadly passed in 2016. I smile every time I drink a cup of Community coffee."

-Connie M

"I grew up in southern Louisiana. As a child, I had coffee milk so I could have coffee like my mom. It was a weekend tradition. After [Hurricane] Katrina, our family moved. I remember splurging to buy my mom a case of the Hotel Blend to bring back the flavor of home. It is still her favorite and brings back happy memories for us both."

-Amanda B

"I moved to Louisiana in 2000 from out of state as a freshman in college. I discovered Community Coffee on the LSU campus and have been drinking it ever since. My husband and I now purchase the giant bags from Costco. It is the best tasting coffee, and I look forward to my cup every day."

-Mary D.

"I grew up at Cardinal Hall in Baton Rouge, LA. My mom always had a fresh pot of Community® coffee on hand to treat the steady stream of friends, family, and visitors. I can't remember a happy time without Community Coffee - it is synonymous with love and happiness!"

-Emily H.

"My dad taught me my love of Community® coffee early on. When he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's I moved him in with me until my mom retired. We would sit on my screened porch sipping coffee while watching birds. Those are the memories I cherish."

-Teresa H.

"My dad was a Community Coffee man my whole life, until he retired a few years back. I grew up with a big red coffee truck in my driveway and the sight of those trucks even today makes me smile and think of my dad. The smell of coffee brewing is the best smell in the world. Now when my dad comes and visits, I love making him coffee and talking with him over a cup of Community® coffee."

-Dawn P.
