Coffee lovers take note. I recently had the opportunity to sample Community Coffee Company and had fun pairing them with desserts I have been baking up for holiday parties and to serve up to family and friends who have been stopping by to visit.
Are you familiar with Community Coffee Company?
Founded in 1919, Community Coffee Company is an importer, roaster and distributor of the highest-quality premium coffees and teas, using only 100% Arabica coffee beans.
I was sent the above samples, which includes both their ground and K-Cup varieties, along with the following "Coffee and Dessert Pairing Guide," that offered suggestions for pairing some popular holiday desserts with the many different Community Coffee products available.
Make sure your meal ends on a high note this year with coffee & dessert pairings from U.S. family-owned Community Coffee Company.
Not only did I have fun baking in the kitchen and serving up the baked treats to family and friends, but, like my husband, I had fun sampling the different Community Coffee Company blends to find my favorite. While I loved all four, I found myself reaching for the Cafe Special K-Cups in the AM, or when pairing with baked goods I had made, when I found myself with some "me time" in the evening and was looking for a way to relax and enjoy a good show with a delicious treat and tasty coffee to accompany it. :-)
Here is more about the Community Coffee Company varieties I was sent.
"This special blend embodies the distinctive flavor of Louisiana and the company's heritage. The tastefully dark-roasted coffee has a fruity, rich flavor with hints of roasted nuts. Made from the top 1% of the world's coffee beans. To complement chocolate desserts, it’s best to serve a French or dark roast like this blend."
"Created for the finest restaurants, this welcoming, medium-dark roasted coffee has full-bodied flavor with a smooth and balanced finish. Made from only the top 10% of the world's coffee beans. For use in all KEURIG® K-CUP® brewers."
"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. For pound cakes and bread pudding, opt for a medium roast like Golden Caramel with a satiny smooth finish."
"This aromatic, medium roast is sure to awaken your senses and follow with a smooth finish. Made from only the top 10% of the world's coffee beans."
