Taste The Difference Family Makes™
Community® coffee is the largest family-owned and operated coffee company in the United States of America. Cap Saurage began selling coffee in his small country store located in Baton Rouge, LA back in the early 1900's. They produce high-quality blends which include 100% Arabica coffee beans in a variety of delicious flavors. You can purchase Community® coffee whole beans, ground, single-serve, and tea.
What a scrumptious idea! Why not consider adding Community® coffee to spices and herbs to create savory marinates for meats. Or for the sweet-tooth lovers, you can create delicious brownie recipes, cakes, frostings, and puddings. As a special gesture, Community® coffee is sharing a delicious extra chocolaty brownie recipe with Mocha Gonache Frosting.
Grandma W’s Extra Chocolaty Frosted Mocha Brownies
½ cup butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons strong brewed Community® coffee, cooled
¼ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
¾ cup white whole wheat or all-purpose flour
Mocha Ganache Frosting:
2/3 cup bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips
¼ cup strong brewed Community® coffee
Preheat oven to 300°. In medium microwave-safe bowl, melt butter in microwave. In separate medium bowl, whisk together sugar and cocoa. Add sugar mixture, coffee and salt to butter; stir until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla to the butter-sugar mixture; mix in completely. Stir in flour just until combined.
Pour into an 8” X 8” baking pan lined with parchment paper or sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. Bake in middle of oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out moist, with crumbs attached. Don’t over bake. Cool completely in pan.
In medium bowl, place chocolate chips. In microwave-safe measuring cup or bowl, heat coffee to a simmer in microwave. Pour coffee over chocolate and stir until completely smooth. Let cool about 1 hour. Beat with mixer for 1-2 minutes or until fluffy. Spread over cooled brownies and let frosting set. Cut into 16 squares.
- Coffee in both the brownie and frosting heightens chocolate flavor.
- The frosting has a mocha flavor and could be left off … but it really makes the brownie!
- White whole wheat flour has all the nutrition of whole wheat with a less assertive flavor and a texture similar to all purpose flour.

I used whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour and baked it in a 9×9 nonstick baking pan. My brownies are thinner than Grandma W's. The girls and I enjoyed the dark roast flavor from Community® coffee.
