The Details


The Coffee

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:

Brazilian Arabica

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.

Ethiopean Djimmah

A specialty coffee with a light-medium roast to bring fruit, toffee and chocolate flavours.

PNG

A flavour classic of the region, our PNG coffee brings a zesty citrus orange marmalade character.

The Process


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.

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Black Ink.
Aroma: Overwhelming fresh espresso.
Body: Bitter, yet balanced. Chocolate and caramels. Fine citrus edge.

Coffee ‘til the end.

CAFFEINE

It’s coffee, of course it’s got caffeine, but not enough to keep you staring at the ceiling all night.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Mr Black is cocktail-ketchup for dark spirits and stirred cocktails. It makes hundreds of classic cocktails better. Blend Mr Black 50:50 with whisky, mezcal, tequila or rum for a small demonstration of what coffee can bring to mixed drinks.
