In honor of the season of Carnival and to celebrate the Mardi Gras holiday, Community Coffee Company has launched the “king” of all flavored coffees, Community® Mardi Gras King Cake, now available online, at Amazon.com and in select stores across the southern states.
This Limited Time Offer King Cake flavor features the same high-quality coffee beans that Community® coffee lovers expect but with a perfectly-balanced combination of cinnamon and vanilla. Available in both 12-ounce bags and single-serve K-Cup® boxes, this blend provides a subtly sweet flavor that exemplifies the fun and spirit of the carnival season mixed with the company’s rich history.
Of course, what would Mardi Gras King Cake coffee be without a little King Cake as well. Mardi Gras season and King Cakes go hand in hand with literally hundreds of thousands of King Cakes being consumed at parties and office lunch rooms every year.
A little history about the Mardi Gras/Carnival Season from Community Coffee's blog:
The coming of the wise men bearing gifts to the Christ Child is celebrated twelve days after Christmas. This is referred to as the Feast of the Epiphany, or Little Christmas on the Twelfth Night. King Cake continues the celebration of the Feast of the Epiphany with a special cake to honor the Three Kings. This tradition originated in Europe where a bean or a coin would be hidden inside of the cake for good fortune to the finder. In Latin America a small figure, representing the Christ Child was placed inside for the same purpose.
Today, the tradition continues with people all over the world. The tiny baby in the King Cake is generally plastic now and many times provided with the cake so the party host, and not the baker, can insert the “baby.” In offices, schools and homes the King Cake is a weekly tradition from January 6th until the beginning of Lent, Ash Wednesday, with whoever gets the baby usually buying the next cake. And, of course, whoever gets the baby in the cake on Mardi Gras day has to bring the first King Cake next year on January 6th.
