  1. 1 French baguette, cut into 1-inch-thick slices
  2. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 1/2 cup strong-brewed Community® coffee Louisiana Blend
  4. 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar glaze
  5. 8 ounces goat cheese
  6. 4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil, divided

  9. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  10. 1 pint fresh strawberries, sliced
