Thank you for choosing Black Velvet Coffee.
We often get asked how we ended up in the coffee business and I suppose, like most people, the answer is that we’re not really sure. ‘One thing led to another’ is not really an answer but to some degree it’s true.
At the end of 1989 I finished high school and had absolutely no idea what I wanted to do. In hindsight, I would’ve explored the football opportunity that was presented to me but in those days the level of professionalism and money in sport wasn’t what it is today...

Coffee is a complex drink, with hundreds of different flavour notes that can be detected by the palate. When coffee beans are roasted, those flavours are brought out, and the coffee becomes even more aromatic. A good coffee blend will take advantage of that, using coffee beans from a variety of origins to create a coffee that is well-rounded and balanced. The best coffee blends are those that are created with versatility in mind. They should be delicious when served black, with all of their intricate flavour notes on display. But they should also be able to stand up to milk and sweetness, creating a coffee that is just as delicious with a splash of cream. A coffee blend that can do both is a truly special thing.
There's something special about coffee blends. They take coffee from a variety of origins and combine them to create balance and unique flavours. This results in a coffee that can be enjoyed black or with milk. No matter how you enjoy it, coffee blends are always delicious. They provide a well-rounded coffee experience that is sure to please everyone. Whether you're enjoying a cup at home or out with friends, coffee blends are the perfect way to start your day or enjoy a break. So next time you're looking for a coffee, be sure to try a blend and taste the difference!
When it comes to coffee, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Different people have different tastes, and coffee makers must take this into account when creating their blends. By combining coffee from a number of different origins, they are able to create a coffee that is delicious served black and also creates a lovely, well-rounded coffee when paired with milk. This versatility is what makes coffee blends so popular. Whether you like your coffee strong and black or light and creamy, there is a blend out there that will suit your taste. So next time you are in the mood for a cup of coffee, don't be afraid to experiment with different blends. You might just find your new favourite.
Never buy coffee that doesn’t display its roast date! If you’re like most coffee lovers, you appreciate the complex flavour of a well-crafted coffee blend. But did you know that your coffee’s flavour is actually determined by its roast date? That’s right - the timing of the roast can make all the difference in the taste of your coffee. So when you see a coffee that doesn’t list its roast date, beware! It could be past its prime, and you deserve better.
Don’t be duped by coffee that has a ‘use by’ date instead. A coffee’s ‘use by’ date refers to how long it will stay fresh in the packaging - not how long it will taste good. So even if coffee is still technically ‘fresh’, it may not be at its best. When in doubt, always go for freshness over everything else. After all, there’s nothing better than enjoying a cup of freshly brewed coffee - and with a little care, you can make sure your coffee is always at its best.

The team at Black Velvet and their philosophy around coffee is exactly on point and the perfect appreciation of looking at their business through the eyes of the customer...it's so refreshing. It's infectious.
As a long time coffee lover, I have relied on Black Velvet coffee to get me through countless night shift hangovers and newborn ''you call this a sleep in?" moments. Always great coffee and exceptional service. I cannot recommend them enough.
