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