My parents are coming to visit and they just can’t live without their coffee. My coffee maker actually worked more in the one week they are here than it does in a month with just the family. I even have to bring out the coffee maker plus the Keurig to keep everyone happy! But they haven’t visited in the summer time before and are probably not prepared for what drinking a cup of hot coffee on a hot day is like. Why drink it hot when you can drink it cold and enjoy all the flavors you love? So while they are visiting I’m making my popular with friends and family Iced Cream Coffee using Community Coffee, after all I had a coupon for it at HEB!
About Community Coffee
I actually hadn’t heard of Community Coffee until I moved to Houston over 10 years ago. I was attending an event at the community clubhouse and that’s what they were serving. Community Coffee is available in single serve portions, which is what I’m using today but when the parents are here I’ll be bringing out the bag as they make about 10 cups at a time (yes and drink the whole pot!). There are a number of varieties available in the single serves. I admit to a weakness for Creme Brulee, French Vanilla and Golden Caramel. They also have a Private Reserve and even Tea!
This family run business has been around for four generations and almost 100 years in the making. Many of the coffee farms they work with are family run and all of their coffee beans go through their rigorous scoring system for body, balance, flavor and aroma.
But for Community Coffee it is not just about the coffee it is about the community too. From the farmers and farms to the production and more, Community Coffee also gives back to the community with a cash for labels program for schools, military match program and economic growth of Toledo and Labateca as well as helping to create a new and improved infrastructure with hospitals, work programs and education.
Now that you know some of the reasons (besides it taste good) that we choose Community Coffee to serve let’s make some Iced Cream Coffee!
