11th Girls Birthday Bash Giveaway!!-Community Coffee Gift Basket!!

I was traveling around town trying to complete an investigation when it hit me that I was thirsty. I was not far from home so I decided to drop by and fix a nice cup of ICED COFFEE!
I was sent the Community Coffee Iced Coffee Gift Basket! My family (and especially my sisters) LOVE Iced Coffee.

This basket came with a Toddy Coffee Maker, and 2 bags of Community Coffee Sumatra coffee beans. After reading the directions for making iced coffee, I proceeded to try it out. It's very easy, and basically consists of adding water and coffee to the plastic part of the coffee maker (after putting the filter and plug in of course :P)
The coffee has to sit for 12 hours, so I left it overnight. The next morning I was excited to see how it had turned out. After removing the filter, I sat the plastic piece on top of the glass carafe (included in the set) and let it drain through the reusable filter. The coffee looked nice and dark, so I got a glass, added ice, creamer and sugar, and poured the coffee in. After stirring it up, I took a sip...it was delicious! ! I used vanilla flavored creamer in mine, and it tasted exactly like the vanilla iced coffees I get at McDonald's! Seriously! I love the fact that I can now have a vanilla iced coffee whenever I feel like it, and can even experiment with various flavors. The coffee stays good for up to 2 weeks when kept in the refrigerator, so even for a single person, you don't have to worry about wasting any coffee.




ABOUT COMMUNITY COFFEE :
"History

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. In 1924, he closed the store and converted his backyard barn into a coffee mill, using coffee beans purchased from a local roaster. In 1941, Cap's son H. Norman Saurage Jr. purchased the company's first coffee roaster, having decided that Community should roast its own coffee to ensure quality at every step. A roasting plant was built in Baton Rouge in 1946.

Over the years, Community Coffee Company would take countless steps to ensure the quality of its product. In 1955, the company began importing green coffee beans directly from coffee plantations in Brazil. In 1970, a new plant was built on the Mississippi River in Port Allen, Louisiana. In 1980, Community introduced the nation's first vacuum-sealed coffee package.

The first CC's Community Coffee House opened on the corner of Jefferson and Magazine Street in New Orleans in 1995. Dozens more opened during the 10 years that followed.

It's been more than 90 years since Cap Saurage founded Community Coffee Company, but our mission has never changed – to share our passion for great coffee with our customers."
