When it comes to what sorts of coffee I like to drink on a regular basis, I'm going to go with Community Coffee (Hotel Blend is my favorite, but it's not available in K-cup form). It could be because I acquired a taste for it somewhere but it's also one of the cheapest coffee brands you can get without sacrificing quality even according to coffee snobs.

In the mid-1990s Community Coffee opened a chain of coffeehouses in southern Louisiana, and in late 1999 expanded to Texas with a store right across from the University of Texas-Austin campus. Additional stores were opened into late 2001 but in 2003 the company pulled the plug on the coffeeshops (they still of course distribute the coffee in grocery stores, and their warehouses are still in the state) after opening locations in Dallas and Austin, almost exclusively in strip malls or in traditional street-side locations...which is a shame, really, and ended up ceding the market to Starbucks for years until Dutch Bros started to hit the state hard.

In previous versions of this sort of thing I would explore what each and every location is today but I'm just going to list the locations. All locations closed in July 2003 except for The Shops at Willow Bend page, which lasted a bit longer.

All "openings" are according to tax records and written in chronological order, they may be slightly off if there was a delay in opening one.
