Community Coffee Company Gets Brewing for Mardi Gras; Announces Launch of LTO King Cake Coffee Flavor

Jan 06, 2016

Baton Rouge, LA, January 2016—Have your cake…and drink it, too! Mardi Gras is here and so is the “king” of flavored coffees, Community Coffee Company’s Mardi Gras King Cake coffee.

A party is best shared and so is a pot of coffee, which is why the company has just announced the return of Community® Mardi Gras King Cake coffee. This LTO flavor features the same high-quality coffee that consumers love blended with light vanilla and cinnamon flavoring. Community® Mardi Gras King Cake coffee hits shelves in late-December and is available for a limited time only in 12-ounce bags and single-serve K-Cup® pods.

The origins of Mardi Gras can be traced back to medieval Europe, beginning in Rome and Venice and evolving into the ornately-costumed festivities we see today. This Mardi-Gras-themed coffee provides a subtly sweet flavor that exemplifies the fun and spirit of the carnival season mixed with a full-bodied blend rich in tradition. To honor the heritage that has helped make Mardi Gras what it is today, this coffee blend makes Community® fans everywhere want to celebrate.

“We’re happy to bring back one of Louisiana’s most beloved coffee flavors,” said Scott Eckert, Vice President of Marketing at Community Coffee Company. “We feel that drinking Community® King Cake brings a little bit of the Mardi Gras magic to people at home, wherever that may be.”
