Mr Black has added a new Single Origin coffee liqueur product line, kicking off with a special coffee from Colombia.
Mr Black’s Single Origin series will celebrate the terroir of top coffee growing regions from around the world.
“In case you didn’t know, we are obsessed with good coffee here at Mr Black. We wanted to give those that love coffee as much as we do, the opportunity to celebrate the amazing diversity in flavour of single origin coffees – whether they are feeling it day or night” said Mr Black Co-Founder Tom Baker.
The first release will use ‘honey’ processed beans, nurtured by Luis Anibal of Finca Villa Betulia, near Huila in Colombia.
Baker said: “One of the benefits of being a small company that focusses entirely on boozy coffee, is that we can produce interesting and unique innovation like this, working directly with small producers from all over the world.”
The specifically selected Colombian coffee experiences light natural fermentation before processing, giving it what Baker describes as a “little natural coffee funk, balanced with notes of figs, chocolate, and dark berries.”
The special edition represents the lighter side of the coffee spectrum when compared to Mr Black’s now ubiquitous coffee liqueur; renowned for its robust dark chocolate, caramel and citrus flavour.
How do you drink it? According to Mr Black Global Coffee Ambassador, Martin Hudák, the new Single Origin – Colombia is best enjoyed neat or over ice.
“This coffee liqueur is really special – Luis and his family are incredibly passionate about what they do and the results show. To pick up the complex aromas & flavours, I’d encourage people to try it by itself. Not to say that won’t inspire you to make a drink with complementary flavors – I put it in a delicious Old Fashioned style cocktail with sweet vermouth and dark rum.”
