Discovery Communications and Single Cup Coffee Launch New Cake Boss Coffee Line

Discovery Communications and Single Cup Coffee announced today 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,” said Valastro. “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 you can have your cake and drink it too with eight 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, creamytaste 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: Dulce de Leche Decaf is rich, creamy caramel flavor kissed with a hint of buttery sweetness.
  • 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: A 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,” said Tim Cook, President of 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 US and Canada will begin stocking the product in spring 2014

New episodes of Buddy’s hit series NEXT GREAT BAKER and BAKERY BOSS will air this summer on TLC.” For more information on Cake Boss Coffee and Single Cup Coffee, visit SingleCC.com.

Melitta Ventures Further into Single-Serve Coffee Market

Melitta USA is evolving even further into the booming single-serve market with its premium Melitta Café de Europa Gourmet Coffee option for Keurig-style machines*.

Continuing Melitta’s long-standing tradition of quality and innovation in coffee, the new single-serve cup is designed to deliver a heightened sensory experience to the entire brewing process. Unique to the category, consumers can actually see and smell their coffee (100 percent premium, high-grown Arabica beans, batch-roasted and ground extra fine) from the moment they remove the cup from its individually sealed freshness pack. Each cup is made with a Melitta filter, and upon brewing, water fully saturates the grinds for a bold, flavorful cup of coffee.

One of the enduring criticisms of single-serve cups is that they too frequently end up in landfills and negatively impact the environment. Designed with the environment in mind, Melitta’s single cup coffees are eco-friendly and 100 percent recyclable.

“We’re excited to offer this gourmet option to coffee enthusiasts, who no longer have to choose between quality and convenience in single-serve,” says Vice President of Marketing Chris Hillman. “A lot of time and hard work was invested in developing this new product, and we truly believe that our single cups deliver the best coffee flavor of all options available in the marketplace. The fact that our product is also eco-friendly is an added bonus – just another one of the many points that differentiates our product from others in the category.

Melitta’s Café de Europa Single Serve Gourmet Coffee has recently expanded into all major grocery retailers in the Northeast. The product – available in Classique (medium roast), Vienna Roast (dark roast), Blanc et Noir (a blend of light and dark roasts) and Espresso Toscana (extra dark roast) varieties – is also available for purchase on www.melitta.comwww.amazon.com and at other select retailers throughout the U.S. MSRP for a 12 count box is $9.49.

* Melitta products are not affiliated with or approved by Keurig Inc. Melitta’s single-serve cups work in most Keurig-style brewers, except the KeurigVUE® brewing system.
