For many people, the day doesn’t start until they have their first cup of coffee, but there’s more to this popular warm drink than a healthy buzz. On Modern Living with kathy ireland®, Matt Saurage, owner of Community Coffee Company, shares how four generations have poured their love and hard work into the brand, transforming the act of brewing and sharing coffee from a chore into a treasured — and delicious — ritual.

Community Coffee has its roots in Mr. Saurage’s great-grandfather’s general store, a gathering place that inspired both the Community Coffee business and the company name. Today, the family’s coffee is one of the fastest growing brands in the international coffee sector, with everything from bulk beans to ready-made bottled lattes sold direct to restaurants, chefs, hospitals, universities, coffeehouses and grocery stores. Throughout its impressive evolution, Community Coffee has never lost its heart, its passion for innovation or its dedication to quality and flavor.
