Mr Black appoints first Global Coffee Ambassador
Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur has appointed its first Global Coffee Ambassador, Martin Hudak.
The role will see Hudak focus on leading the company’s coffee mixology focus, and bridging communications between coffee drinkers, bars, restaurants, retailers, distributors, and press.
Hudak previously worked as a senior bartender at The American Bar at The Savoy, London, and in 2017, became Champion at the 2017 World Coffee in Good Spirits competition. Prior to that, Hudak has shaken and stirred at the world finals for HCGP, Beefeater MIX LDN, Absolut Invite and the national UK final of World Class.
Tom Baker, co-founder of Mr Black said: “Martin’s passion for coffee and mixology is absolutely contagious. His edge and understanding of coffee, spirits, bartenders, and baristas are second to none in the drinks industry. We’re delighted to have him join our mission to take craft coffee into the night.”
Hudak added: “My aim over the years has been to bridge the gap between the world of coffee and cocktails. It was the natural and obvious choice for me to join forces with a brand and group of people who believe in this as passionately as myself.”
Hudak will be hosting seminars at the New York Coffee Festival from October 12-14, at the Metropolitan Pavilion. After his time in New York, Martin will head back to Australia to judge in the World Barista Championship.
“World watch out ... craft coffee and spirits are reuniting!”, Hudak said.
