HISTORY. INGENUITY. PASSION.

Since Cap blended the first batch of Community coffee, we’ve seen plenty of change — both inside and outside the company. We’ve evolved to better serve our customers, but we’ve also tried to stay true to our roots and the community that got us started. That’s why over the past 95 years we’ve maintained an unwavering dedication to making the best-tasting, highest-quality coffee we possibly can — all while developing better methods of sourcing, superior roasting techniques and innovative ideas to keep our coffee at its peak of flavor and freshness.

We simply love making coffee, and we find inspiration in every part of the process, from planting the beans to serving the perfect cup. Above all, we’re inspired by the people we work with, the customers we serve and the connections we’ve built together.

The tradition of television in Baton Rouge began on April 19, 1953, when WAFB signed on the air as the second television station in Louisiana. Over the following decades, Channel 9 created the number one news organization in south Louisiana, covering local, state, and regional news.

Today, WAFB brings its viewers 25 hours of news programming each week.
