I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting and Community® Coffee. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Many of you know that Jay served in the Marine Corps for 6 years and was deployed during the Gulf War. If you hear him talk about those years, one thing he remembers vividly is missing the comforts of home. He’ll talk about how the chicken-a-la-king MRE (meals ready to eat) was his favorite because it tasted like a meal from home. (If you’ve never had the chance to try an MRE, let me assure you that you have to be really homesick to think one tastes like a home cooked meal!)
While average people who support the military always warm my heart, I am a big ole softie for businesses that step up and try to help out as well. I am one of those people who will go out of my way to patronize a business that gives back to our men and women in uniform and I love being able to tell you about them as well.
Community® Coffee is one of those businesses.
Anyone who knows me, knows about my love affair with coffee. I’m one of those don’t-even-talk-to-me-until-I’ve-had-my-coffee people. Needless to say, we go through a lot of coffee at our house. I haven’t been overly brand loyal – I have a few favorites that I bounce between depending on what I have a taste for that morning. I will be adding Community® Coffee to my coffee collection and will be buying it as much as possible. Here’s why…
Four generations ago, Henry Norman “Cap” Saurage began Community® Coffee as a way to create amazingly good coffee for his surrounding community in Louisiana. Over the years, Community® Coffee grew and expanded, but never lost sight of its mission – great coffee for great customers. As a way to show support for the military service members who are away from home, they created the Military Match Program. Every time someone buys a Military Match gift set (that would be four 12 oz, 16 oz, or single-serve 18 count coffees) Community® Coffee will match that donation – plus they will include a free mug.
Great coffee plus a great cause – that’s a win-win in my book!!
