Community Coffee Company: Recipes Made with Coffee!

Oh my goodness, it is absolutely no secret at all that I'm a coffee girl and just recently I did the unthinkable, something I never thought I would do... I tried iced coffee!! Let me tell you, the outcome. While I liked it (surprise! I really did), it's still the hot I prefer. That's not to say I won't be filling up a mug with ice and enjoying my beloved beverage on some hot summer days though, because I most definitely will be. :)

Community Coffee comes in single-serve cups too!
When it's coffee time, I like to have a medium roast (or a flavored coffee). Others in my family love the dark roast. Fortunately, reputable coffee companies like the ever amazing Community Coffee that we all know and love, offers all of the above, and then some!

Community Coffee Company is the largest family-owned and operated coffee company in the U.S.
Community offers high-quality blends featuring 100% select Arabica coffee beans in a variety of yummy flavors such as Pecan Praline, French Vanilla, and classic Dark Roast. For savory meals, use Community coffee in combination with other herbs and spices to marinate meats. For sweeter treats, try coffee in pudding, cake and brownie recipes to intensify the flavor of chocolate.

Cooking with coffee, you say??? Oh yes, if you haven't tried it, you must, must, must (did I say 'must?' give it a go. 

I took the following from the Community Coffee Pinterest Board, which if you haven't been to yet, I highly recommend. These are just a few of my favorites to show you, but there are others. And so so soooo many of them look absolutely scrumdiliumptious!


Coffee Braised Beef Short Ribs

The first recipe I saw that made me giddy was the Coffee Braised Beef Short Ribs. My grown boys love ribs, and if I break out this recipe the next time we're all together, and I may, I'm going to get some serious Mom-Brownie-Points (and who doesn't want those?!?!). :)


Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing
For those with a sweet tooth, how about Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing. I can't even imagine how delicious that bad boy would taste some late afternoon, on the back patio, with family, friends and some Community Coffee.

Pretty good looking, right? I told you so. :) And there's more, there's definitely more (would the chili and coffee rubbed steak tip skewers be calling your name? or maybe the Coffee Créme Brûlée?).

You can learn more about Community Coffee by visiting their website. Be sure to check them out too on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

Let me know below, do you like cooking with coffee? Have some great recipes to share? Love Community Coffee? Pull up a chair and let's discuss. I'm all ears. :)

Sandee said...

Oh yummy on both. I would love both. Coffee rocks doesn't it.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. ☺

Cherie Reich said...

I enjoy coffee (hot and iced), although I'm more of a hot tea girl. Those tiramisu filled eclairs with mocha icing sound so delicious!

Masshole Mommy said...

You has me at eclair! Those are one of my all time FAVORITE desserts!!!

Heather Lawrence said...

I have used coffee in deserts before and it always works out well. Granted I am a huge coffee fan so that really isn't a huge surprise. Haven't tried it on meat before but I bet it would be awesome!

Christy Maurer said...

Both of those look so good! I have Community Coffee right now! It is so tasty!

Crystal Green said...

These recipes sound delicious. Coffee has a way of enhancing many recipes.

I'm such a huge coffee fan. I can't believe I've never thought of cooking with it before. I think coffee and ribs is a beautiful thing.

Mary Johnson said...

I love to marinate steaks in dark coffee and even used instant coffee as part of a dry rub. I bet it would be good with regular coffee too. Coffee is so good. :)

Rebecca Bryant said...

OMG that eclair looks amazing. Pass me one lease.

Megan Elford {WelcomeToTheZoo} said...

I love coffee! I've had several different kinds of coffee-flavoured dessert, but I never thought about making a main course dish with coffee. What a great idea! It's such a great flavour, it would taste great on almost anything!

Pat Hatt said...

Well that is something new. I guess coffee lovers everywhere will be happy campers lol

Chantal Bernard said...

Wow such creative ways to use coffee! Thanks for sharing!

Liz Mays said...

Those ribs look crazy delicious! Maybe I need to break out my coffee in a different way too!

Dave, Amy and Jace said...

Not a big fan of drinking coffee, but I like the taste in desserts!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I don't do hot coffee, but I do love an iced coffee occasionally. The key is making sure all the sugar is dissolve (which takes FOREVER! in cold liquids) before taking a big sip :)

Julie's Lifestyle said...

I love coffee hot too but I'll drink it iced too! I hope all is well with you. Have a nice weekend.
Hugs, Julie xo

Lois Alter Mark said...

Those are amazing uses for coffee! Would definitely not have thought of the ribs!

Little miss kate said...

I love making iced coffee in the summer.

RANE said...

Tiramisu with Coffee sounds super delicious. I looove Coffee and like that it can be used in so many ways other than drinking

Chatty Crone said...

Hi! I would never have thought of using coffee to cook! Interesting. The ribs look great.

Amanda Love said...

I love coffee but have never cooked with it before. Never even thought about it, but now you've given me something to think about. :)

Chubskulit Rose said...

That ribs looks so good, I bet it tasted so good as well. I love incorporating coffee on chili but haven't tried it in anything like this.

Jessica Harlow said...

Oh, the coffee braised short ribs sound divine! I'm going to hop over to their Pinterest boards and pin a few recipes!

Carly said...

I've never heard of Community Coffee before. Those coffee braised short ribs look so delicious!

ourfamilyworld said...

I love coffee with baked treats, but I've never tried it with meat. The rib is mouthwatering!

Courtney said...

Those coffee braised short ribs sound incredible! I have used coffee in desserts but never in savory dishes. That's going to have to change now!

Nicole Escat said...

I've never seen like this before , but this food was looks delicious, i always drink coffee after eating meals

Crystal said...

Before we got married, my husband wasn't a coffee drinker. Now he's hooked. I know he'd love these recipes.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

I never would have guessed coffee was of such use in cooking

Alli Smith said...

I've used coffee in dry rubs before and it amps up the flavor big time! I haven't seen this particular brand. I'll have to look for it.

Jeannette said...

Those eclairs are calling my name! I actually really like cooking with coffee adn this was a great way to find some new ideas!

Elizabeth O. said...

I have heard about cooking with coffee, but I have never tried a dish. That rib looks so tasty!

Scott said...

I had a coffee rub on ribs once and wasn't a fan. However, a mocha eclair like the one you show would be something I couldn't get enough of!

Terri Ramsey Beavers said...

I drink coffee from the time I wake up until I go to bed. I have tried and like Community Coffee but I don't really cook with it. I'll have to change that because it would be so much cheaper than the coffee syrup I buy to put in everything.

Ricci said...

I LOVE Community Coffee!!! It has a nice full flavor and I made some iced coffee the other day with it. AMAZING!!!

Joanne Dewberry said...

Coffee ribs!! Not sure I fancy those it they do look amazing!

Joyce Lansky said...

It all looks good. As much as I love coffee, my husband hates it, so I don't know about the recipes. :(

Mimicutelips said...

I'm not a coffee drinker but my gosh that slab of meat up top looks good. I never would have thought to use coffee for cooking other things.

Crystal said...

Mmmmm coffee everything please! They both sound fantastic, but the mocha icing is calling to me.

Soiree Design Studio said...

Okay, those eclairs look so yummy! And with coffee in it...you totally have me sold.

Lisa Codina said...

You had me a coffee, lol! I have to have my espresso asap in the morning and right after lunch!!

Christy Garrett said...

The ribs sound delicious. I love them but don't buy them because my husband doesn't like them. I bet the coffee makes them taste good.

Colette S said...

We love the community coffee...well my husband does. And I will share when he gets it :)

Krystal Butherus said...

I need to look for their coffee. I've never tried it before and I'm a coffee fanatic!!

Kristin and Megan said...

Oh my goodness those ribs look just delectable! Yum!

Margarita Ibbott said...

I'm a huge fan of coffee. I also like different dessert with coffee as a base. Tiramisu is my favorite dessert. We'll maybe on a tie with carrot cake is a close second.

Lynndee said...

Both the hubs and I are coffee addicts. And having a sweet tooth, that Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing is making me drool.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

I know the Tiramisu is made with coffee and my Daughter loves it. She grew up not drinking coffee, so it surprised me when I found out she liked it so much.

Erin said...

Oh, I need to find this coffee. I've never heard of it before and I love coffee!

debdenny said...

I lie Community Coffee. Really into the Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing.

Ron Leyba said...

As a coffee lover/addict, i found this one truly impressive! Gotta try some of them soon!

Censie Sawyer said...

This is a new brand to me. But goodness knows I love my coffee!

Jennifer Medeiros said...

I don't think about cooking or baking with coffee very often, if ever. The Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing sounds Ah-mazing!

Nile Flores said...

Interesting... coffee braised ribs.... that is different. I've never had that. I've actually never imagined doing that and may have to try it.

Becka M said...

I just recently became a coffee addict. I like flavor coffee too. At the moment I am enjoying some French Vanilla.

Kiwi said...

I wanna try tha Tiramisu made with coffee. I am sure that is delish!

Katherine Bartlett said...

My husband loves community coffee. It's his favorite brand

Michael G D'Agostino said...

Iced coffee is the only coffee I drink. Anything I can make in under 30 seconds is a winner for me ;)

I admit to having a sweet tooth, and to thinking those eclairs look amazing :)

Dhemz said...

Oh, my! Now I'm salivating. Now I know what brand I could use for making tiramisu.

Danielle K said...

Oh those ribs look amazing! I've never actually cooked or baked with coffee, but I definitely need to try to now :)

Mama to 5 said...

We drink this coffee. What a great way to incorporate it into recipes, they both look amazing!

~ Noelle said...

I LOVE Iced Coffee..... More than regular *unless its winter time.
Since it is normally HOT here, iced is best for me :)

Manzanita said...

Hey Kiddo
I love, love, love coffee...... the aroma of coffee sends me into a giddy delight. But.... I never drink it. One sip of iced coffee and I'm again addicted and that addiction is difficult to break. The headaches, oh the headaches. When I do/did drink coffee, it was always ice coffee. Even during the most brazen Minnesota blizzard I would order my iced coffee....always double shots with ice. Alas....now I get my kicks from wandering through the coffee section in the health food store, the section where they grind the coffee and the lovely aroma is a temptress.

Jeannette said...

Can I just come to you house when you make these again! Those RIBS look amazing I will be making those this weekend! My hubby LOVES coffee!

alissa apel said...

The Tiramisu Filled Éclairs with Mocha Icing look amazing! I've made homemade doughnuts with coffee before. Nom Nom!

Terra Heck said...

I've never cooked with coffee before. May have to try it someday.
I prefer my coffee hot too.
