I am not, nor have I ever been, a coffee drinker but I have friends who enjoy coffee and I like to do special things for those friends. With summer quickly approaching, I think my friends are going to need Chocolate Coffee Truffles to power through all that comes with having kids home all day long!
I used Community Coffee to make the truffles because it came highly recommended. But, Community Coffee also has an interesting story:
In 1919, “Cap” Saurage discovered the secret of making a special coffee. He named it “Community Coffee” out of appreciation for his community of friends and the customers he served. With the help of his family, Cap Saurage opened a country store to sell coffee and other groceries to his neighbors. Four generations later, his family is still selecting, roasting and perfecting great-tasting blends for coffee lovers everywhere. From sourcing our beans at coffee farms around the globe, to tasting the finished product at our own kitchen table.
