Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: December 2002
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: "Auburnbulldog" gives this venerable grocery store coffee from Louisiana a 90 to 94 rating "because for a non-specialty coffee it is by far the best. I cringe when I go from Community to Starbucks." I found it a fine example of a (non-chicory) New Orleans-style blend: roundly low-acid coffees with a musty or mildewy edge (probably mainly Brazils) turned malty and rich by the moderately dark roast.

Notes: Community Coffee is a distinguished family-owned coffee company founded in 1919. Community Coffee is its original brand, a traditional favorite in the New Orleans area. CC's Coffee is Community's distinguished specialty brand. Visit www.communitycoffee.com or call 800-525-5583 for more info.

Who Should Drink It: Brewed strong with a little milk this one should set up nicely next to the beignets.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
