This recipe features the recently released Mr Black Single Origin Colombia, which highlights a “honey” processed coffee of the Caturra variety, sourced from Luis Anibal of Finca Villa Betulia, near Huila in Colombia. “Honey” refers to the sticky fruit flesh left on the coffee bean during drying, meaning the bean continues to extract sugars and flavours from the pulp.
Mr Black combines the Single Origin cold brew with Australian grain spirit and sugar in a liqueur that exhibits complex tasting notes of fig, caramel, dark berries and chocolate on the palette. This special edition represents the lighter side of the coffee spectrum when compared to Mr Black’s now ubiquitous Coffee Liqueur, which is renowned for its robust dark chocolate, caramel and citrus flavour.
