We roast this coffee to a medium-dark color to bring out notes of caramel and cocoa, giving you the taste of your favorite café right at home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coffee I have been buying Community Coffee online for a few years now and have tried almost all of their coffees. I have not been disappointed by any of them. They are all good quality, they’re fresh and they have great flavor. And the shipping is fast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What is the red bag blend? Let's say it is 25 years ago, and you go to the store and buy a red bag of Community Coffee, no fancy grinds, roasts, names, flavors, etc., just the famous, and nearly ubiquitous coffee in Lake Charles, LA. It's great, brewed at home, or in cafes and restaurants and gas stations. Now, back to today. Is this supposed to be the same, exact blend, roast, and grind? If not, which one sold today is the same as the old red bag? Or is it like Coca Cola, where you have to get the Mexican Cokes for the true recipe? Don't know. It is a nice coffee, but sometimes these things matter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Something changed... This coffee used to be good, and somewhere in the summer of 2023 it changed. There is now a very bitter taste (lingers with a bad after taste too), some have even described as a chemical taste. We were told the formula did not change, but after ruling out all other variables, that is all we can conclude. We have found other blends that are acceptable, but this one no longer works for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coffee and staff. What makes the coffee great isn’t just the fine cup to start the day. It’s the service. Customerservice is the finest group of great people I have ever dealt with. A totally wonderful way to do business. Yes I am a long time customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Indiana loves Community Coffee! Great product. Wish they would bring back the American Classic in 3 oz. packets. I used to order all of the office coffee supplies from Community but they quit offering a lot of items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had Cafe Special @ Hotel in New Orleans many times Have been ordering for 8 years or so. Love the Coffee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best coffee ever! Don’t buy this if you’re expecting a coffee that tastes like a candy bar….it doesn’t. But do wait for the subtlness…the hints. They are there and they are remarkable! I’ve been drinking coffee for 60+ years and Cafe Special is the best I’ve ever had. I almost didn’t try it because I don’t like ‘flavored’ coffees but for a reason I still don’t understand I bought it. I never plan to buy anything else as long as this is available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious So smooth, no bitterness! I love my Community Coffee

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing like described. Grew up on dark roast chicory. Tried this looking for one that isn’t bitter because I’m not using sugar anymore. Can’t even smell it brewing! . It’s bitter and flat with only a burnt taste. Guess they’ve focused on all the flavored types now. I’m looking for one to enjoy with only cream. This isn’t it. So much for Community. Tastes like cheap convenience store coffee! I’m a daily, sometimes three times a day coffee drinker.
