Community Coffee Company ***Review and Giveaway***

I love a good cup of coffee, that is no secret here! So when the opportunity presented itself to work with another amzing coffee company, Community Coffee Company (CCC) I was excited to say the least!

So let me start this review off by telling you a little bit about the Community Coffee Company. They are the largest family-owned retail coffee brand in the US! They have been opperating for more than 88 years, four generations, in Baton Rouge, LA. The mission of the CCC, from their website, is to share their passion for great coffee with you!

For review, I was sent a Community Coffee Company 16 oz Holiday Tumbler, a 12 oz Café Special® Ground Coffee, and a Private Reserve Holiday Duo.
I am in love with the tumbler because it holds a good amount of coffee, is festive, and is microwaveable! I am one of those people who might, occasionally, pour a cup of coffee and get distracted (can you tell I'm a mom? lol) only to come back later to a cold cup of coffee - so microwaveable is a HUGE bonus for me!
My husband and I are right now enjoying a pot of Holiday Jazz®! It is a great medium-dark roasted coffee, with a pleasant aroma and a full-bodied flavor that doesn't disappoint! The other 12 ounce ground coffee that came in the Private Reserve Holiday Duo is Bread Pudding. I am a bit more reserved about flavored coffees, but this has a pleasant aroma and is not too overpoweing in the flavoring that I can't enjoy the coffee flavor as well. If you are a person who likes flavored coffee, you will probably enjoy this more than we did.
The Café Special® Ground Coffee is a very pleasant coffee, with a very pleasant price tag! This coffee could easily replace the Breakfast Blend that we have been drinking. Café Special® Ground Coffee is a full bodied coffee with a medium-low acidity. It is smooth and delicious!
Community Coffee Company has many amazing products available on their website form coffee to coffee presses and tumblers to canisters and more. They also have an assortment of Gift Sets for every taste, budget, and preference! I am going to share a couple of my favorites with you:
Private Reserve® Gormet Holiday Gift Basket For the coffee lover on your list, our Private Reserve® gourmet coffees will make the perfect treat. This basket includes three 12-oz. whole bean specialty coffees (Breakfast Blend, Louisiana Blend® and House Blend), a 2-oz. bag of Pecan Praline flavored coffee and a 2-oz. bag of French Roast coffee. The set also includes a Coffee-Fresh Canister, ceramic Community Coffee Collectible 1960s mug, premium travel tumbler, logo coffee scoop and a black Bodum coffee grinder. All of this in a beautiful willow basket wrapped for the holidays
All of this for only $69.95!!
Private Reserve Holiday DuoFor all coffee connoisseurs who would love to enhance their coffee experience. We have paired our 12-oz Private Reserve® House Blend ground coffee, a Kenya 12-oz French Press, along with a premium scoop for that perfect measure. All of this is in a festive holiday box with a gift card. (Regularly priced at 28.95)
This gift set for only $23.95!
Another wonderful service that is offered on the CCC website is Military Match Gift Boxes, where if you buy 4, 16 ounce bags ($21.96-$23.96 TOTAL plus flat rate shipping) of coffee for a military person OVERSEAS and send it to an overseas military address (APO/FPO) Community Coffee Company will DOUBLE your order! How cool is that!
Military Match program is our way of demonstrating support for those serving overseas, and are away from home, family and friends during this time.

As you can see, there is no shortage of great products or prices from Community Coffee Company! And to sweeten your holiday shopping you can receive 20% off your entire order and FREE shipping with the promo code: SPECIAL


Today, Community Coffee Company is so much a part of people's lives and spans so many generations that it has been dubbed the State Coffee of Louisiana™. We invite you to enjoy this family tradition and experience a little bit of Louisiana in every cup.

  2. I accidentally rejected a bunch of comments rather than approve them and there is no way to get them to publish now, so I am going to enter them myself and just put who they are from and what they said...hopefully I never do that again!!!
