Tiger fans will soon have a new brew of their own, as Louisiana’s own Community Coffee gears up to launch an LSU Blend full-bodied special dark roast coffee. Community Coffee spokesperson Jodi Conachen says the Baton Rouge based company wanted to honor its roots. She says fans of the purple and gold will love the new LSU Blend.
“We created this special blend, it’s a special dark roast,” Conachen said, “So if you like our signature blend and you’re looking for something that’s really rich and distinctive, this will definitely give you that flavor profile that you’re looking for, and you get to support your Tigers.”
Conachen says this is a great way for a local company to show support for their flagship university. She says the LSU Blend will launch in July and run through football season.
“It’s available across Louisiana and into some other select locations but basically in any of your local grocery stores. You’ll see full displays in Walmart, Albertsons, Rousse, Winn Dixie,” Conachen said.
Conachen says the special dark roast blend is already extremely popular in Tiger Country. She says they believe Tiger fans will enjoy the coffee and showing off their love for the Bayou Bengals.
“We’re happy to bring this to the market, and we think people will enjoy it,” Conachen said, “It’ll be a nice collector’s item too because you can see that Eye of the Tiger really prominent on the bag, and I think people will want to hang onto that bag for a little while.”
