Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee I received this coffee in exchange for my honost review and I am very happy that I did. The coffee comes already ground so you don’t have to worry about grinding it only scooping it into your coffee pot . It is a medium roast blend which is perfect for in between flavor strength. It’s Not to weak and not to strong. It’s not overpowering so you can sneak in that second cup . it’s perfect for your morning pick me up.It has a great rich smooth taste! You get 37ounces in a can with a resealable lid so the flavor stays locked in until the last scoop. Overall a really great coffee to enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way to start the morning I wouldnt say that I have a morning routine, but I will say that my day isnt just right unless I have my morning cup of coffee. I also especially enjoy a hearty, strong cup of coffee. This coffee smells wonderful as soon as the folied seal is removed. Then I rush to give my mouth what my nose has already enjoyed. Community coffee has become my favorite coffee ever since trying it at work. Its strong without killing the taste. Just how I like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new Favorite I have to be honest and say that over the years I have passed over Community Coffee for what I considered the more well-known brands. I have to admit I was wrong, after recently trying it I realize it is quite good and affordable, it has a rich taste and aroma that will ensure that I pass over those so-called premium brands that I've been trying and make Community Coffee my first choice. This review is based on trying the medium roast blend, I usually prefer a dark roast and will be trying that next, hopefully, it will live up to my expectations as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just purchased the American Classic 37 oz. I met a Community Coffee representative in my local Walmart. He told me about the new American Classic 37 oz. I told him I was sold out on the dark roast. The representative was very helpful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the coffee blends. He said the American Classic was a great roast and stated that he would give me a coupon if I was interested. The man's name was Ed. He went to his company truck and gave me a coupon. I try to look for coupons whenever possible and was so grateful that Ed took me to the display and explained the different roast. He was wonderful and very enjoyable person to talk to. Ed is a great asset to this wonderful company. Ed was right, this roast is very good and something I would purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO SO TASTY! I am very impressed with the taste of this coffee. The robust aroma and taste is sure an eye opener. It is rich, smooth and pairs well with many different flavor creamers. The best part is that it is made from one hundred percent select arabica coffee beans. It is lower in acid, which makes it even better. I have stomach problems so I was very happy to know this. This is so good that I know all coffee lovers would absolutely love it and really recommend that they give it a try. I think they would be as pleased as I am. Such a great treat every morning!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I found this coffee at Walmart, with a $5 off coupon attached, so I gave it a try. Best I can say is I look forward to emptying the container so I can go back to a mainstream brand. The instructions for brewing indicate it takes twice the grounds to brew the same strength as Folgers or Maxwell House. So, priced the same as other brands, that factor alone makes this brand a poor investment without the $5 off coupon. The coffee flavor is no where as good as Folgers, adjusted for comparable brewing strength. Friends have expressed a disappointment in my downgraded coffee. My recommendation is to avoid this brand at all costs. Based on the brewing instructions the coffee is twice the price and the satisfaction is non-existent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cup of Coffee I had never heard of this brand and have never seen it in the store, so when I was asked to try it my thoughts were why not. I am so glad I did, this makes for a great cup of coffee. I normally buy an expensive well known brand (not disclosing here) so I made a pot of this without telling anyone and no one in the house noticed I used a different brand, they all just said good coffee this morning, then I told them and the coffee snobs that they are didn't believe me, well they believe me now.. It has a rich, smooth, balanced flavor and I feel good that this is family owned and responsibly sourced. Now that I have tried the American Classic Medium Roast, I plan to give the other flavors a try, can't say enough good things about this coffee!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the Greatest This Coffee was basically ok if you run out of your Usual or if you don't have the time to visit a Starbucks or your Favorite Coffee Shop! I've definitely tasted cheaper brands that have been better. It was just too week for us, we put the recommend the 1st time and it tasted to watered down. So the next cup we added a few extra scoops the next round and it still gave it that watered down taste. We drink it Black no sugar or Cream so we really don't know if that would have made a difference, but for us it wasn't to our liking. Thank you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smooth and Mild I'm always on the lookout for new coffees to try so when I saw the American Classic ground coffee from Community coffee I had to give it a go. Community Coffee is a family owned company based in Louisiana run by 4th generation coffee makers which I think is very cool. The coffee is a medium roast with a nice smooth and mild flavor. I enjoyed the coffee but, personally, prefer a darker bolder roast than this but did still like this coffee. If you enjoy a mild and smooth cup of coffee with no "bite" to it this will be perfect for you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, robust flavor Medium roast is my roast of choice, so I think I have a good basis for comparison. My initial experience when I opened the can was a very pleasant aroma, a good sign for me. As far as taste, good flavor, though not quite as strong as I had expected. Still, it was full-bodied and pleasant. And just to add, by my second cup, I was experiencing a fairly significant caffeine buzz. Final note: to make a fair comparison, I substituted this coffee for what I normally drink in the morning, to keep to my usual routine and set of variables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply delicious I’ve been a fan of Community Coffee for many years now, but this is the first time I’ve tried the American Classic. I have to say, it’s pretty fabulous. Rich flavor without being too strong, and it’s also really smooth. This is a brew that’ll taste good black or with cream and sugar if that’s how you prefer it. I tend to drink my coffee with just cream, but honestly this really doesn’t need it. I brewed up a pot to share with my brother and he ended up drinking most of it. Ha! So it’s safe to say, this has been a hit in my home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coffee I received this coffee in exchange for my honest review. I an a huge coffee drinker as are others in my household and we are “”coffee snobs”” but always willing to try different kinds to see if we like it any better. This had a very rich flavor to it and was very smooth as the pros. Only one con was it left an after taste I thought but the others in my house who tried didn’t seem to think so, so I guess that’s a person to person thing. I would definitely recommend this and will buy in the future. It is a good tasting coffee.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great way to start your day! I had never tried this brand before because I rarely see it in my local stores but when I finally had a chance to try this braqnd of coffee I was really surprised and enjoyed it very much. My husband and I drink coffee every single day and I just cannot start my day without a good cup of coffee (or two!). this canister is a bot bigger than other brands we usually buy so that was nice, it has a rich bold flavor and great aroma. It is a great everyday coffee at a decent price. It's a medium roast so if you don't like very strong coffee this might be the right choice for you. I don't like too strong, bitter coffees because that would only make me add more creamer and sugar, so this one was a perfect blend for my husband and me. Would definitely recommend to any coffee lover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Morning Pleasures Community American Coffee Medium Roast was a huge hit in my household.We normally have to purchase multiple different coffees to please anyone,not anymore.It was the perfect blend,not to strong and not to weak.It was rich in flavor to get the day started.Has brought to my household something no other coffee has,simplicity.We all agree that it's rich and flavorful with a light bodied taste.A little bit goes along way,and by golly waking up to those aromas in the morning is like sweet heaven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth taste I hadn't heard of Community Coffee before, wanted to give it a try and so happy I did! The aroma of the grinds is great and even better when brewing. Had an excellent taste that isn't bitter and doesn't leave a strong after taste. I am not a straight black coffee drinker but I found the taste was actually pretty smooth. I could easily drink it black if there was no creamer available. I noticed they have different flavors 1 will be giving those a try as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for house guests. I tried out this coffee when we had a house full of guests last week. It's a well balanced coffee that everyone seemed to like. It's not too strong, or too weak, or too dark. It's just a good tasting all around agreeable cup of coffee. I didn't have the time or energy to try to suit everyone's particular likes and dislikes or brew three different coffees in the morning. Community Coffee American Classic worked out really well to keep everyone happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A true American Classic. I bought this coffee because I was sick of paying higher and higher prices for my normal go to. I was pleasantly surprised by this coffee! It's a medium roast which is perfect for me. Not too strong but not so weak I feel like I'm drinking water. There is nothing I love more than the smell of a great coffee first thing in the morning. The coffee is smooth and makes me want another cup as soon as I'm finished with the last. I would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great cup of Coffee As my late Father used to say "Life is too short for a bad cup of coffee" My Dad would have like American Classic coffee by Community. We tried the coffee with several different brewing methods. Drip and pour over were very good. The medium roast was perfect for a breakfast brew. It was full bodied but not bitter as some coffee's can be. Coffee is an individual taste ,but we found the American Classic to be a great way to start your day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Community Coffee A American Classic. This is a amazing coffee and a amazing company. The American Classic medium roast is rich, flavorful and comforting. Community Coffee always produces the finest coffee's and this one fits right in. 100 years in business and still making exceptional coffee. You would think a medium roast wouldn't be as robust but it is. Not only robust but no bitterness that some others have. I know it's a American Classic but also a Louisiana love!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coffee ever! I am an avid coffee drinker and have been for nearly 40 years. I can honestly say that I love this coffee! It has a rich aroma, a smooth taste and no bitterness. Since trying Community coffee, I will be purchasing more of it! It has officially replaced a well-known brand that I drank for many years. Even my wife loves it, and she rarely drinks coffee. I highly recommend Community coffee to anyone who wants a great cup of coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I had a second cup! I'm a newbie with drinking this coffee. I have cut way back on my coffee intake for several reasons but I do enjoy a cup in the morning. Got the American Classic medium roast for the first time, and let me tell you that it stands up real well to the more popular and expensive brands. It has a nice smell, flavor and aroma when brewed. It was so nice that I had to have a second cup! It just may end up a classic in our household!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coffee from Community Coffee My wife and I have been enjoying this coffee for several weeks. It has a pleasant flavor and smell. We prefer coffee that is not too strong or bitter and Community is perfect for us. We use 4 coffee scoops per pot and this still provides great mild flavor. We have also used less to make a single serving in place of our coffee pods. We like that this coffee is family owned and take well deserved pride in their product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Value Super large size canister that will last for awhile. Value is certainly there so for that alone I give it a fair review. For overall taste and quality of the coffee bean and blend unfortunately it wasn't my favorite. Sort of a darker stronger blend which I didn't prefer however I am sure it will appeal to many. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for anyone for anyone who is looking for value and a decent brew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unexpectedly A Great Coffee I received the Community Coffee and had reservations about the brand. Surprisingly, the coffee has a rich roast smell with a smooth taste, without the bitter taste most medium roast brands has. I prepared the coffee two ways, one with a percolator and the other through a camping brewing technique, both ways provided a great cup of coffee. I highly recommend this brand for everyday use and when camping outdoors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just darn good coffee My husband says this is his new favorite coffee, he loves the flavor, the smell the whole 9 yrds. He used to drink the other brands but since trying this Community Coffe this will be his go to coffee from now on. He drinks coffee throughout the day and just enjoys this coffee so much more than all the others he's tried. I love the smell it just fills your house up with such a pleasant aroma.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from American coffee As soon as I received coffee I could smell it. I love the aroma. I love the can it came in with beautiful red and color of can is appealing. Brewed coffee and loved the aroma in the air. The taste is wonderful and not too strong. I so love this coffee and so did my grandson whose 11 yrs old. The aroma and flavor is the best. I would definitely recommend and purchase over and over again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Notch Brew!! I fell in love with this coffee while living in Louisiana a few years back. Let me add that I am NOT a coffee drinker, that's unless you have Community Coffee - American Classic brewing. I love that it is smooth and not overpowering or bitter. I also like to use it to make chilled/iced coffee from time to time. I would suggest this coffee to anyone who loves a good, top quality cup of Joe!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good rich flavor I had heard of this coffee before, but could not find this brand in K cups. Took the opportunity to dig out my old drip pot, and boy am I glad I did. I can’t remember enjoying a cup of coffee this much in quite awhile. The only reason I didn’t give this a 5 is because this is a ground coffee for drip pot use and not a k Cup. Really enjoyed the good, rich flavor and great smell. Thank you!

We're a family passionate about great-tasting coffee. In 1919, “Cap” Saurage discovered the secret of making our special coffee. He named it Community Coffee in appreciation of his community of friends and the customers he served. Four generations later, our family is still selecting, roasting and perfecting great-tasting blends for coffee lovers everywhere.



Bringing you the best coffee in the world starts with searching for the perfect growing conditions and perfect farming communities. The best coffee beans are picked at their peak ripeness, in some cases by hand. We sip coffees with these families right where the coffee grows and determine which coffee beans are best suited for our special blends. That commitment to quality gives our coffees the same freshness and flavor, cup after cup.


How much ground coffee should I use when brewing?

We recommend 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for every 6 ounces of fresh water. Adjust to suit your taste preferences.

How long does coffee stay fresh unopened in packaging?

Each canister is marked with a recommended brew by date. If the coffee is brewed by this date, it’s guaranteed fresh. Coffee itself does not expire, it only loses freshness after a period of time and is still safe to drink after the brew by date. After the canister is opened, it should stay fresh for about 2 weeks if stored properly.

How do I store my American Classic™ Canister?

This premium canister is ideal for storing ground coffee. Store your canister in a cool, dry place, such as a pantry or cabinet, away from excessive heat or moisture.

Are the canister and the lid recyclable?

In the U.S., with a metal bottom, our cans are accepted in the metal recycling stream. The lids are plastic #2 and are accepted in the plastic recycling stream. Please check your local recycling guidelines for more information.

Where is this product available?

This product will be available Walmart stores nationwide September 29.
