Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee throughout the years! I’ve been drinking Community Coffey since the ‘70s, and have NEVER lost the desire to continue! I first started drinking “dark roast”, but recently tried Cafe roast (medium to dark roast), and LOVED it! I will ALWAYS be a Community Coffee drinker!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Used to be excellent After a popular box store quit selling an excellent arabica coffee I switched to CC Cafe Special and was pleased with everything about it. It was just right with excellent flavor. I drank it for the last 6-7 years and became a loyal customer. In the last couple of months, something has changed with Cafe Special. Now it tastes muddy with much less flavor. This is now the worst tasting arabica I know. Moving on to a better arabica.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rekindling the long-standing Love Affair! Started our "Community Coffee" relationship in 1982 same year my wife and I were married. Have been in love with the Community Family ever since ... and like any relationship you have ups and downs ... only this one the "downs" have never been lower than the last "up"! This last purchase and the Brazil Santos Bourbon has stars twinkling in our eyes yet AGAIN! Well done Community/Sarauge Team! Patrick & Randalle

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cofffee - crowd pleaser! I make the coffee every week for the reception area of a large church in Warner Robins, Ga. Our coffee used to be just so-so and frankly it wasn't very popular. Two years ago we called a new Pastor from Zachary, LA and his wife told me all about Community Coffee - her very favorite coffee. She gave me a bag of Cafe Special and it immediately became my favorite too. At home I use a Moccamaster and the Café Special is the best I've ever brewed. Well I started using the Café Special in our good equipment at church and we currently serve 9 gallons every Sunday morning! People tell me there is not a barista in town who makes better coffee. It has nothing to do with me but everything to do with good equipment, and Café Special! Thanks to the Community Coffee folks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A custom blend of 2 flavors I’ve been drinking both Cafe Special and the Signature Dark switching off every few days. When I didn’t have enough of one or the other to brew one morning, I put the two together in equal parts and it was a perfect blend! Now I make my daily cup with this combination! Perfect blend that is very rich and smooth and tastes to me like it has slight hint of a chocolate flavor. I use my inexpensive Mr. Coffee 38 oz. French Press adding 4 heaping scoops (+/- 4 heaping Tbsp) of my CC custom blend (2 scoops each) filling with boiling water to just an inch from the top. Stir for about 10 seconds and cover it with a small plate (bc there’s no room for the filter to sit on top) for 2 min 30 sec. then slowly push the filter through and pour the best 2 big cups of coffee. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look forward to the mornings! I recently purchased 2 40oz packages of the Cafe Special coffee. Each night I lay awake tossing and turning in bed hoping to fall asleep ASAP so I can get to the morning and a couple cups of this great tasting coffee ☕️!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Large Bags 40 oz. of fantastic coffee. I saved money by subscribing for delivery of two rich flavored blends, Breakfast and Cafe Special. This coffee is packed fresh and retains that smooth taste and rich flavor in the special bright red bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coffee, great tradition I've been drinking Community Coffee since I was five. Now I'm 77, and have never found better coffee. Recently I went to a gourmet coffee shop and asked the clerk what kind of coffee she drank, and it was Community Coffee. When I make coffee for my men's group, I get compliments every time. How can I say more? (My father said that he was afraid that drinking strong coffee at age 5 would stunt my growth, but I grew to 6' 3". Coffee didn't help that growth, but it sure didn't hurt either!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Higher Groundz! Whenever my husband would travel to the South on business, he'd rave about Community Coffee. Recently he was excited to hear that it was going to be available locally (California coast) so I went online to find out where I could buy it. Well, apparently he was misinformed - BUT, I discovered I could order direct! How cool is that? He's totally jazzed - and highly caffeinated. Thanks - I think. (It really is an flavorful, full-bodied yet non-bitter brew.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous My husband is from Louisiana and he has always loved Community Coffee. Every trip to New Orleans, we have to stop at a Community Coffee Shop to sit, relax and enjoy a great cup of coffee. Now that we live in Kansas, we order online. Cafe Special has such a smooth flavor. I have even got other Kansans to order online. It is just that good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This the best! I discovered Community Coffee 5 years ago when the B& B I stayed at, The Fairchild, served it to me and my wife We both loved the hot & strong coffee. As we visited my Tulane attending son often, we would bring bags of it back to Branford, Ct where we live. Now I just go to the Community Coffee website and order as much as I want.. Its then delivered to my door. And delivery is free if you order $45.00 worth of merchandise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Café Special I’ve been drinking Community Coffee since I was about 6 years old. I’m now in my 60s and continue to drink it. My mother loved the dark roast and that’s what I drank for years. But once CC came out with the Café Special blend … well, its has been my favorite. I love the hints of caramel and cocoa! Not overpowering but tasty with a smooth finish. This time I ordered the 32 oz. bag because you get more bang for your buck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mellow I used to buy Community breakfast blend in my local grocery store, but switched when they no longer carried it. The store brand gave me such bad heartburn, I decided to research Community further online. Although Cafe blend isn't described as being low acid, I have found I can drink 2 consecutive cups and no heartburn! I will continue to buy Community Cafe blend. I do wish Community would provide an acid level rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Coffee I was introduced to Community coffee several years ago by a good friend. It easily became the best coffee we have ever bought for home. The price is super reasonable and we buy in bulk and gift it to family members. Never a bitter or burnt taste. This is the coffee for serious non-frufru lovers of the brew. Reminds of Kalida Brothers, our favorite coffee shop In Alaska and the only retail coffee shop that I favor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you Andy! First sampled this coffee a few weeks ago in Alabama, courtesy of my Louisiana cousin Andy. It’s the only coffee he drinks and he’s brings it with him whenever he goes away. Fortunately for me that he did this, because he had an extra bag and he gave it to me to take home. My family and I are hooked. Once I got back to New Jersey, I placed my first order. I stocked up and bought five 32 ounce bags!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thanks for a direct-sales to buy Cafe Special! Although usually available in northern Virginia, this is and has remained our favorite brand of Community Coffee. Recently, our local store decided to y’all replace Cafe Special with the All-American, which we did not like. Thank you for giving us an option for direct purchase – we now get the amount we need, when we need and we even tried the “half-caf” and really like it as well! Thanks Again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home Sweet Home I'm a Southern Lady and Community Coffee is my go to when I want a nice smooth Cuppa Love and Warmth on a chilly day or just to get my morning percolating properly. I Love the variety you have it's Amazing. I'm from Texas where I can usually buy most of the variety specials but I've recently moved to Northern California to help friends in need, I looked for a nice coffee shop or supermarket that may carry Community coffee but no one had it. So I did what had to be done. I reached to my fellow friends at Community coffee and ordered my self a nice variety for myself and friends to have and enjoy as we visit. Thank you for all you do Community coffee, you're Amazing. My Great Grandmother was from Grant's Parish and she was the one who originally let me sneak a little sip of her Chicory Coffee as a wee girl and then my Love blossomed to beautiful memories over a Cuppa Love with every visit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Community Coffee is great Due to the recent pandemic our grocery store in Missouri ran out of our favorite Community Coffee - Cafe Special. Being my wife is from New Orleans and an avid Community Coffee drinker we were very glad to be able to order it on line and get it shipped quickly to us. She has even gotten a "Northerner" to have it as my favorite coffee. Thanks for keeping us stocked up way up here in Missouri!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flavor I’m trying to find my favorite blend of Community coffee by trying as many as I can! Problem is, I haven’t had one yet that I didn’t just love. Never bitter, always so good with a rich coffee taste. I really love the latest one I ordered cafe special! Just cannot decide which one I like best, every one has been my favorite!! Thanks for all the specials you do and of course the great coffee!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Community Coffee best coffee ever We are up in Alabama for this Covid-19 and we always bring our Community Coffee with us from Louisiana. They don’t sell it where we shop at. We ran out . I received an email about ordering from Community Coffee, I bought 2 bags so we won’t run out before we go back home to Louisiana when this isolation settles down. Stay Safe America and order your Community Coffee. Great service. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Local Coffee I'm a coffee lover & I love me some Community Coffee! Great tasting, made local, great value. Has been my preference for most of my adult life & I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to try it. Cafe Special is a good "in between" roast. Rich, but not too strong. They also have lots of flavored coffees I enjoy as well. If you haven't already, give them a try. You won't be sorry.
