about us.

the black story.

Specialty coffee is a product we believe in which is why it has accompanied us since our beginnings. We started with a small espresso bar on Gorkého Street with the aim of bringing a new wave of coffee excitement. However, curiosity took over and pushed us to explore even further. Today we are a local roastery from Bratislava with global ambitions. Looking ahead, we hope to build on and expand with what we've created in 2017. Which is to build a brand that is worth following, due to its unyielding and determined team. Thanks to which we are able to push the boundaries of specialty coffee and coffee culture locally and abroad.

Ever Since the beginning, we pride ourselves upon the freshness and quality of raw materials, seasonality and personal approach. We believe that the enjoyment of coffee is more than just about its consumption. It's a lifestyle filled with a never ending amount of new experiences.That's why we've set out on a journey to find unique varieties, non-traditional flavors and an innovative roasting style.

This young and humble junior marketer joined us so that together we could create content that would be relevant and attractive. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, taking his bike out for a spin.


After almost three years, Laura is a colleague who has brought fresh wind to our sexist sails. Her joy and enthusiasm behind the coffee machine reminds us of our beginnings every day. She likes to bake, she loves Italy and despite her short legs, she runs like a doe in her spare time.

passion and knowledge.

Each member of the team has their own unique experiences from the world of specialty coffee, all of our knowledge combined together is what creates the black we now know and love. Thanks to our passion and experience, we have become two-time champions of Slovakia in the preparation of filtered coffee and to top it all off our Alex is the only Slovak judging barista competitions at the international level. Nevertheless we are constantly finding ways to further improve and develop in the constantly evolving coffee curriculum and trends.
