Mr Black Roasters and Distillers have added a new product line to their collection, launching the first liqueur this month.

The Single Origin Series was added to the range to delight coffee fiends, entering the market with a first special coffee liqueur from Colombia.

Mr Black Co-Founder Tom Baker said the Single Origin Series will celebrate the terroir of top coffee growing regions around the world. He said: “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.”

This first release uses sought after ‘honey’ processed beans, nurtured by Luis Anibal of Finca Villa Betuila in Colombia. Baker said that being able to specifically select this coffee is possible thanks to the nature of the Mr Black business.

“One of the benefits of being a small company that focuses entirely on boozy coffee, is that we can produce interesting and unique innovations like this, working directly with small producers from all over the world,” Baker said.

Compared to the original Mr Black liqueur known for its robust flavours, the Colombian special edition represents the lighter side of the coffee spectrum. With light natural fermentation before processing, Baker describes it as a “little natural coffee funk, balanced with notes of figs, chocolate, and dark berries.”

In terms of serving, Mr Black Global Coffee Ambassador Martin Hudák recommends enjoying the Colombia 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 and flavours, I’d encourage people to try it by itself,” Hudák said.

“Not to say that won’t inspire you to make a drink with complementary flavours. I put it in a delicious Old Fashioned style cocktail with sweet vermouth and dark rum.”

With 25 per cent ABV, the 700ml bottles are available now.
