Since Community Coffee Company was started in 1919, it’s been family owned and family operated. We still work with many of the same family-run farms we’ve worked with for generations. Many of our employees have a deep family connection to the company, and can tell you stories about the days their parents and grandparents came to work at Community Coffee. And generations of coffee drinkers have trusted us to serve them only the best.

To us, family means treating each other right. That’s why we only use 100% select Arabica coffee beans. We ensure they're roasted and blended just the right way, using recipes perfected for almost 100 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.



The late Norman Saurage III, our third-generation owner, dedicated more than 60 years to Community Coffee Company. Norman grew the company tremendously while staying true to our values and to our commitment to always making better coffee.



In 2012 Norman Saurage stepped down as chairman to let his youngest son, Matt Saurage, carry the family company into the future.


  • We rely on one another to act with absolute integrity.
  • We work with passion and an uncompromising commitment to quality.
  • We focus on building and maintaining strong relationships.
  • We make respect a part of everything we do.

We think it's our focus on those core values that has kept employees, partners and customers with us for decades, lifetimes and generations — and it’s what makes new members of our family feel at home right away.

These values inspire us to continually push the boundaries of excellence in coffee - and to consistently deliver on our commitment to be the best coffee company in America. We're growing faster than ever. We continuously look for high-performers who share in our values. We look for people who value quality, integrity, safety and building relationships to drive business.
