"Cake Boss" Inspires Keurig-Compatible Coffee Flavors
Discovery Communications and Single Cup Coffee announced an innovative new line of Keurig-compatible single serve coffee cups inspired by the hit TLC series, "Cake Boss." The line, debuting this month on TLCstore.com, starts with the smooth, medium roast Buddy’s Blend as the perfect complement to your favorite dessert.
Famous around the globe for the creativity he brings to the world of baking, the "Cake Boss" himself, Buddy Valastro, has infused this rich, smooth, "Cake Boss" coffee with the tastes of his favorite bakery creations to create seven flavored coffee originals, including Hazelnut Biscotti, Chocolate Cannoli, Italian Rum Cake, and more.
“Whether at home, in my bakery or on the road, I don’t start my morning without a hot cup of coffee,” Valastro says. “I’ve been working with TLC and the coffee pros at Single Cup Coffee to create a variety of coffee flavors unique to 'Cake Boss' that can satisfy both the sweet tooth and coffee craving.”
Now customers can have their cake and drink it, too, with blends including:
- Buddy’s Blend: This classic Italian Roast features East African coffees that are roasted extra dark to offer intense, bold flavor in a heavy-bodied cup.
- Chocolate Cannoli: A caffeinated tribute to Buddy’s famous chocolate cannoli: a delectable mingling of creamy custard, chocolate drizzle, and hints of buttery pastry.
- Chocolate Fudge Cake: Fresh, creamy taste and dark cocoa flavors combine to create a deep, delicious chocolaty fudge flavored coffee.
- Dulce de Leche: A bakery mainstay, Dulce de Leche is rich, creamy caramel flavor kissed with a hint of buttery sweetness.
- Dulce de Leche Decaf: A decaf version of Dulce de Leche.
- Vanilla Buttercream: Flavors of buttercream frosting and delicate vanilla come to life in this smooth flavored coffee.
- Hazelnut Biscotti: Fill your cup with the flavor of freshly toasted hazelnuts and the rich, vanilla taste of freshly baked biscotti.
- Raspberry Truffle: Taste the flavors of fresh raspberries smothered in milk chocolate ganache.
- Italian Rum Cake: An irresistible flavored coffee inspired by the buttery sweetness and smooth rum syrup of Buddy’s signature sponge cake.
“'Cake Boss' coffees offer a fresh take on what we expect from our existing single serve coffee lines,” says Tim Cook, president, Single Cup Coffee. “The 'Cake Boss' Coffee line is bringing in brand new flavors inspired by the delicious Italian pastries and cakes seen on the show. It’s a very exciting product line that you just have to taste for yourself.”
"Cake Boss" Coffee will be supplied and distributed across North America by specialty coffee company Single Cup Coffee. Retailers across the U.S. and Canada will begin stocking the product in spring 2014.
