Product Review: Community Coffee Dark Roast

Community Coffee Dark Roast is usually the coffee of choice in Louisiana. Community Coffee has been a family owned business in Louisiana for over 85 years. It started out when one of the brothers of a local store started buying whole coffee beans, grinding them and re-selling in the family store. He named this blend “Community” after the local community of friends and family who frequented the store. The coffee became so popular that it was soon being delivered by buggy and wagon all over the southern parts of the state.

My Thoughts On Community Coffee

I grew up drinking Community Coffee. I used to go next door to my grandparent’s house when I was a kid to have breakfast with them. I was allowed to have a cup of coffee with breakfast, something that didn’t happen at home. This was a treat and I grew up loving coffee. Now, as an adult I have a favorite coffee, it is Community Coffee Dark Roast. Friends and relatives who visit from out-of-state always remember the full flavor coffee we have in Louisiana.

In fact, on our last vacation to Tennessee, we stayed at a campground and the manager asked if we had an extra pound of Community Coffee upon learning we were from Louisiana. Since I only brought one pound along for our trip, we took him a Ziploc bag of Community Coffee Dark Roast so he could brew a couple of pots of Louisiana Coffee.


If you want to try a flavorful, full-bodied coffee with a great aroma, I would recommend Community Coffee Dark Roast. You don’t have to travel to Louisiana to get this coffee in modern days, you can order direct from their website. Enjoy a cup for breakfast or when you are just relaxing!
