Our review of the Community Coffee Breakfast Blend.

Community Coffee Breakfast BlendCommunity Coffee Breakfast Blend whole beans.

Many thanks to the folks at Community Coffee for sending us a few of their coffees.

Today we’ll be looking at their Breakfast Blend. 

(That said, I’m looking forward to trying their Coffee & Chicory blend. I have always had a soft spot for chicory in coffee. I know, not a very “purist” thing to confess to.)

Community Coffee has been around for almost 100 years. Founded in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1919, it is still a family run business today.

Given that so many coffee companies today have a history that goes back just a few years, or months even, it’s refreshing to find a firm that has survived and thrived for quite so long.

OK...let’s look at their Breakfast Blend.

As always, we ground the beans just before brewing, and made the coffee in our trusty Bonavita drip brewer.

This is a medium roast coffee, and perhaps a little on the light side of medium.

That aside, it still packs the clean acidity we need first thing in the morning.

But this is a fairly light roast, so you don’t get the depth and boldness some people might look for early in the day.

I would say this coffee is defined by its brightness and a fruity sweetness.

In one of her moments of unconventional insight, my wife took a sip and declared “I taste strawberries and banana!”

She’s right. The tang of the strawberry, and the dry sweetness of banana. 

Overall, a medium-roast coffee with a sweet edge...with just enough weight and acidity to kick you into gear at the start of your day. Plus a strong, clean finish.

You can find out more about the Community Coffee Breakfast Blend at their website.
