BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — 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, Café Special and Breakfast Blend.

Community Coffee Chairman Matt Saurage tells The Advocate (http://bit.ly/10ui4R2 ) 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.
