Curl Up with Community Coffee - Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Now that the holidays are here and temperatures have dropped, we’re snuggling up and sipping on these cold weather classics. Community Coffee Company offers seasonal coffee blends (made exclusively with 100% Arabica beans) that are deliciously satisfying on their own AND in a number of food and drink recipes. Treat yourself with this festive, homemade beverage!

The Sugar & Spiced Christmas Coffee
Servings: 8
Cook Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:
3/4 cup chilled whipping cream
4 1/2 tsp. powdered sugar
1 cup freshly ground Community® coffee
5 tsp. ground cardamom
3 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
7 cup water

Directions:
Using an electric mixer, beat whipping cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Then, add powdered sugar and continue beating. Place ground coffee, cardamom, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a coffee filter. Using spoon, mix gently. Add water to your coffee maker and brew to your liking. Next, divide coffee among 8 cups. Garnish each with a dollop of whipped cream and serve piping hot.

I'm no virtuoso when it comes to coffee.  I'm a simple layman that knows what I like and don't know much about the science behind the perfect brew or blend.  If I find a brand of coffee that suits my taste buds, I will happily dabble in trying their different varieties.  One company that I recently became acquainted with is Community Coffee.  I must say that I'm impressed with the boldness and flavor. 

Community Coffee has been around for some time, but I just recently learned of it.  The company is a retail coffee brand that selects, roasts and perfects great-tasting blends for coffee lovers everywhere. 
From sourcing their beans at coffee farms around the globe, to tasting the finished product at their own kitchen table, it’s all part of the commitment to being the best coffee company in America, every day.

I do not own a Keurig at home but there's a shared machine at work.  I received three single-serve packs of Community Coffee pods to sample.  In each package were 12 K-Cup Pods.  Golden Caramel was my favorite of the three.  It had a slight buttery caramel flavor with the dark body brew.  There was also the Café Special and French Roast blends.  Both were dark in color and bold in coffee flavor.  The French Roast was the darkest and most intense of the three. 

I may be no expert and knowing my coffee terms but I'm an expert in what I like to drink.  Community Coffee knows their stuff and I was very pleased with how each cup of roasted coffee tasted.

A company with great coffee, Community also gives back with its Military Match program.  Community Coffee Company supports U.S. military personnel by doubling orders to ensure servicemen and servicewomen get a cup of home.  The Military Match program works when you first buy your favorite Military Match Set of four 12 oz., 16 oz., or Single-Serve 18 ct. coffees.  The company will then match your purchase with an additional four items, and send all eight items to the APO/FPO or military base address you provide. They will even include the Signature Military Mug with your shipment.
Win It!

One person will win three 12-count boxes of Community Coffee K-Cup Pods in choice of blends.

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*
