Community Coffee Co. says it has begun selling single servings for customers with single-cup coffee brewers.
The new single-serve cups, available in grocery stores and online, will be offered in Dark Roast, CafÃ© Special and Breakfast Blend.
Community Coffee Chairman Matt Saurage tells The Advocate the "K-cups" -- named after Keurig, which popularized the single-serve systems -- are the fastest-growing segment for home consumption of coffee. Saurage says the single-serve cups account for around 20 percent of the dollars spent on coffee consumed at home.
Saurage says the Baton Rouge coffee company had gotten a number of requests on its Facebook page and through customer service for the single-serve cups.
