Perking Along for Four Generations: Matt Saurage and Community Coffee
Posted On August 19, 2019
Matt Saurage’s great grandfather, Cap Saurage, began Community Coffee in Baton Rouge, Louisiana four generations ago in the year 1919. Matt’s vow is to keep the company true to its roots by providing the best, most consistent brew of coffee the company is capable of and keeping the company viable for the next generation of Saurage. Matt gives us details about his coffee business ranging from the two unique markets for coffee with chicory (Mobile is one), the fungus that threatened the world’s coffee crop, and the industry’s desire to become completely sustainable. He’s also a fan local coffee shops which, he says, often begins a person’s relationship with the beverage by way of its social qualities. If you’re a coffee fan, you’ll want to listen in.
