I’m a True Blood fan. It doesn’t matter how it’s packaged HBO Series or The Sookie Stackhouse Series of books, and I love it! Know what else I love? COFFEE! There is no doubt in my mind that Sookie and Arlene are serving Community Coffee at Merlotte’s.
I know this because Sookie and Community Coffee are both in Louisiana.
In fact, Community Coffee was there long before Sookie, though it’s debatable if Bill Compton was there before the Coffee!
Of course, you know the history of Sookie and her Vampire Adventures, but did you know that For four generations, the Saurage family of Louisiana has owned and operated Community Coffee Company?
In 1919, Henry Norman “Cap” Saurage discovered the secret of making this great-tasting coffee in his country store in Dixie, Louisiana, near Baton Rouge.
He named his coffee “Community” in honor of his community of friends.”
The rest is history!
“Steeped” deep in Southern Hospitality and tradition, the Community Coffee Company is more than just good coffee.
They give back to our communities through two programs::
“Community Cash for Schools” Program.
It’s as easy as signing up and then clipping your Community Coffee Company UPCs for your favorite school.
This program has generated $4,000,000 in new textbooks, equipment, and other necessities to promote education in our youth.
“Military Match” that sends Community Coffee to Our Troops–
Just “Order 4 bags of Community coffee, and we will deliver a Military Match Gift Box containing 8 bags of delicious Community coffee to any OVERSEAS military APO or FPO address.”
They even have a Community Coffee Club that allows you to “enjoy the convenience of fresh coffee delivered right to your door.”
If you come to my house, my mid-western hospitality is going to greet you.
We’ll sit around the table and visit with a cup of coffee.
Community Coffee offers a huge selection of Traditional, Private Blends, Gifts, and even Tea.
It all allows you to be an amazing host and indulge in some mighty fine coffee!
But bigger than True Blood and Community Coffee, Louisianna has Mardi Gras! Fat Tuesday is fast approaching, Tuesday, February 16, and to celebrate…
Celebrate Mardi Gras 2010 with friends, family, and business associates with this exclusive gift set, including Carnivale Cake ground coffee (a medium roasted, Central American flavored coffee with a perfectly balanced blend of vanilla and cinnamon) and a Mardi Gras travel tumbler. To complete the duo, they include Mardi Gras beads!
