May is Military Awareness Month and as a child who grew up hearing stories of War from my daddy and family members, the Military and our Troops hold a special place in my heart. I am proud to say that I have family members, like my daddy, who have fought for my freedom and so thankful to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for us. There is so much we can do to make others aware of the Military and what they have done and continue to do for our Country and I’m so happy and thankful that there are so many companies out there that give back to our troops. Today I want to share with you and highlight a company that has been giving back to our troops for over a decade and I hope that you can support them in their mission as well.
With more than 2.2 million men and women serving in the U.S. military, approximately 400,000 are stationed abroad in one of the 150 countries U.S. military bases are maintained. Community Coffee Company has helped American’s across the country send more than 4.2 million cups of coffee to active-duty personnel worldwide for over a decade through their Military Match program. When customers purchase 4 bats or boxes of Community® coffee online, the company doubles each order, donates a Signature Military Mug and sends them to any APO/FPO address provided.
“The Military Match program gives us an opportunity to boost the morale of those who give the most to our country – the men and women of the U.S. military. While they’re serving, away from their family and friends, we can now offer them a taste of home every day.”
– Matt Saurage, 4th Generation Owner
When I hear about companies that similar acts, it warms my heart. When my dad was stationed in Vietnam, years before I was born, I’m sure he would have loved a little piece of home to give him comfort and hope. Honestly, nothing says love and home like a warm cup of joe and Community Coffee Company offers such a great program for a great cause.
So how does the program work?
- Step 1 – You buy 4. Buy your favorite Military Match Set of four 12 oz., 16 oz., or Single-Serve 18 ct. coffees.
- Step 2 – Get 4 Free. Community Coffee Company will match your purchase with an additional four items and send all eight items to the APO/FPO or military base address you provide.
- Step 3 – A Free Mug! Community Coffee Company also includes their Signature Military Mug with your shipment.
While I have to limit the amount of coffee I drink because of my heart and blood pressure, I am a coffee addict and consider myself someone love absolutely loves a great blend. Community Coffee graciously sent me three different grounds to try: Breakfast Blend, Cafe Special and Golden Caramel. The Golden Caramel has been such a delight to my morning coffee routine and the others definitely make a great addition. Each coffee tastes delicious (I have my eyes on the Creme Brulee next) and I am so glad I was introduced to a brand with strong family roots.
About Community Coffee Company…
This family business goes back four generations. The family is passionate about making great-tasting coffee. In 1919 – Great Grandfather “Cap” Sarage discovered the secret to making their special coffee. He named it “Community Coffee” out of the appreciation for his community of friends and the customers he served. With the help of his family, Cap Sarage opened a country store to sell coffee and other groceries to his neighbors. Four generations later, and the family is still selecting, roasting and perfecting great-tasting blends for coffee lovers everywhere. From sourcing their beans at coffee farms around the globe, to taste the finished product at their own kitchen table – Community Coffee Company is creating great flavors and grounds for us to drink and enjoy.
It’s companies like Community Coffee Company that help make a soldier or troops time away from home feel a little less lonely. I’m thankful for Community Coffee Company, their efforts and support but also the fact that they really offer delicious coffee blends for everyone.
