The Coffee: Creating Mr Black is akin to blending a whisky. We choose different beans and roasting profiles to develop different flavours in the final drop. Specifically:
A combination of a more traditional ‘French’ roast and a lighter, more contemporary roast. The Brazilian brings the unmistakable ‘fresh coffee’ flavour to the brew. It’s the foundation.
A specialty coffee with a light-medium roast to bring fruit, toffee and chocolate flavours.
A flavour classic of the region, our PNG coffee brings a zesty citrus orange marmalade character.
Mr Black is entirely cold-extracted with no addition of flavours, preservatives, caramels or vanillas (generally used to disguise bad coffee or inferior process).
Cold extraction – as the name suggests – is done at significantly lower temperatures to espresso – 23 degrees in our case. The result is a less acidic brew with a rounder mouthfeel and big coffee flavour – perfect for creating a liquor.
Creating a coffee that can stand up to blending with spirits, Mr Black uses a significantly higher coffee-to-water ratio and longer steep time than traditional cold brew.
