Community Coffee has been a Louisiana institution for 97 years. This family-owned and operated company understands that our culture and way of life revolves around the coast and our coastal wetlands. For the first time Community Coffee is partnering with CRCL to promote coastal restoration in a very unique way. Beginning in May, you will see special sales kiosks in grocery stores throughout South Louisiana and Alexandria promoting Community® Private Reserve coffee, specifically its Crescent City Blend. This special gourmet blend was created to bring a great coffee experience together with CRCL’s mission to drive bold, science-based action to rebuild our coast through outreach, restoration and advocacy. Ten percent of proceeds from the sale of Community® Crescent City Blend benefits CRCL, up to $10,000. It’s coastal restoration, one cup at a time.
“Community Coffee is a company that originates from Louisiana and has strong connections to the coast.” said Scott Eckert, Vice President of Marketing for Community Coffee. “Our personal connection to this region only makes the issue that much stronger to us, and we are committed to preserving the environment where we work, play and serve our rich, smooth coffee.”
“This is a tremendous opportunity for CRCL,” said CRCL Executive Director, Kimberly Davis Reyher. “Community Coffee is giving us a brand new platform to raise awareness of CRCL and the importance of restoring our disappearing coast. The fact that such an iconic and beloved Louisiana company understands just how important coastal restoration is to the survival of Louisiana’s economy and culture is a testament to Community Coffee’s commitment to the Bayou State.”
When asked why Community Coffee would partner with CRCL for this first-of-its-kind promotion. Eckert replied, “We have the opportunity to be a part of something that impacts our customers, our families, and our local communities now and for future generations. Our goal of supporting the environment partners well with CRCL’s mission to restore and protect the coast, which is why we are happy to be on board and have a strong partner in this effort.”
The special gold bags of Crescent City Blend with CRCL’s logo will begin arriving in stores on May 1st. They will only be available for a limited time so don’t miss your chance to enjoy this one-of-a-kind coffee experience and the opportunity to support CRCL.
