Thank you to Community Coffee for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
Coffee. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! I started drinking coffee in high school, and never looked back. I am a huge grump before that first sip of morning coffee, which I prefer to enjoy before anyone else is stirring in the house. It will soon be time for us to get back into our school day routine, which means that everyone has to be up a bit earlier, and momma needs to be fully functioning by the time everyone else is rolling out of their beds. I rely on that first cup of freshly brewed coffee to jump start my day- and I am truly lost without it.
Community Coffee knows a thing or two about starting your day off right, with a hot, delicious, freshly brewed cup of a delicious coffee blend. Community Coffee is a family owned business, which got its start back in Baton Rouge, LA in 1919. Cap Saurage opened a country store to sell coffee and other groceries to his neighbors. The stage was set for a story that would grow over the next century. It was the story of family serving neighbors. By 1919, Cap had discovered a secret blend that was richer, bolder and smoother than any coffee around. He named his popular coffee “Community Coffee” to honor his friends and neighbors. It was a coffee for his community. Cap had laid the foundation for the largest family owned and operated retail coffee brand in America.
It's four generations later, and Community Coffee is still selecting special roasts and brewing delicious blends for the community- all across America!
I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to team up with the fine folks at Community Coffee, who generously sent me two boxes of K-Cup blends! I absolutely love flavored coffees, so I couldn't wait to taste these new blends!
I received Golden Caramel and Vanilla Creme Brulee.
Each box of K-Cup pods included 12 single-serve K-Cups. I love my larger bags of ground coffee, but I also like to have a nice variety of K-Cups on hand. Not only are they convenient, when you just want one cup of coffee (maybe as an afternoon treat), they are wonderful to have on hand to offer to your guests or to unexpected company! The K-Cups are individually packaged and sealed, so you don't have to worry about them going stale. No one wants to drink a cup of coffee that has lost its flavor, because the bag of grounds has been open for too long.
I wasn't sure which flavor I wanted to try first, as they both sounded incredible. I am a big fan of French Vanilla coffee creamer, but have recently cut the creamer from my diet, and switched to using Splenda and milk, instead. Being able to get that flavor I love so much from the actual coffee, cuts out unwanted fat and calories.
I started my taste-test with the Vanilla Creme Brulee.
The Vanilla Creme Brulee Coffee was a fantastic choice for me. It had that sweet vanilla flavor that I love so much. It was sweet, creamy and smooth. It's definitely my top choice in flavored coffee, and it's the one I go for when I want an afternoon pick-me-up.
A light, crisp taste of sugar layered on top of delicious vanilla bean custard. This sweet and creamy blend has all the flavor of a traditional crème brulee. Made from only the top 10% of the world's coffee beans.
Golden Caramel K-Cups
The Golden Caramel was also amazing! The flavor was very rich and creamy, and had just the right amount of caramel flavor blended with a medium coffee roast. This is one of those flavors that will wow your friends and family when they come over, and is my top choice for offering to my guests. It tastes great as a hot treat, but it's also yummy brewed hot, and then poured over ice and blended with a bit of sweet cream or milk.
Taste the rich, buttery flavor of caramel blended with medium roasted coffee. This satiny smooth coffee is made from the top 10% of the world's coffee beans. For use in all KEURIG® K-CUP® brewers.
Cooking with Coffee
Not only are Community Coffee flavors perfect for everyday coffee enjoyment, their coffee can be used in a multitude of ways to enhance the flavor of your food! For savory meals, use Community coffee in combination with other herbs and spices to marinate meats.
