Community Coffee is a cuppa Joe with a Cajun patois, don't you know. Stating that it makes the largest family-owned retail coffee brand (Community Coffee) in the US, the company imports, roasts, and sells its coffee beans to grocery and convenience stores, restaurants, hotels, and offices throughout eight southeastern states. There's more brewing: some – more... 30-plus CC's Community Coffee Houses have sprung up in Louisiana since the original coffee shop opened in New Orleans in 1995. The company also offers whole coffee beans, teas, chicory, and coffee-related gifts and accessories at its coffee houses as well as online. Started in 1919, Community Coffee is owned and led by descendants of founder Henry Norman Saurage.

In addition to CC's Community Coffee House coffeehouse division, Community Coffee generates sales through direct to retail store distribution and distributor networks, as well as through its namesake e-commerce division. The company imports green coffee beans through partnerships with plantations in Brazil, and elsewhere in South America, and Africa. A roasting plant processes and packages the coffee. The company claims that it was the first in the US to introduce a vacuum-sealed coffee package.

Geographically, Community Coffee's distribution is concentrated in Louisiana, and nine other Southern states. Through its website, its products are also shipped worldwide to consumers.

Community Coffee's flagship product is its coffee, however, it aims to stay on pace with changing consumer beverage preferences. In 2012 the company rolled out two new iced tea flavors, Skinny Sweet and Green Tea with Lemon, targeted to restaurant, hotel, office, and other customers. Since its first launch of Community brand iced teas in 1958, the company has won the business of an increasing number of large foodservice operators, including Ruby Tuesday, Taco Bueno, and Another Broken Egg Cafe (franchise). – less
