The perfect balance

For me, Black Velvet is an incredibly versatile blend. Its medium-roast acidic complexity adds X factor to milky coffees without tipping over into a weird fruit/milk clash. The same acidity gives fruity pep to black coffees - and both are supported by a solid, toasty “coffee coffee” base.
This is my daily driver blend, and also the best place to introduce cautious folk to more complex, less roasty coffee.

Krumbs Carumba now has a rival for my morning cappaccino.

I did not believe I could be led astray and become unfaithful to Carumba.But now it is true.Black Velvet is now my weekend bit on the side.

Favourite coffee!

I have been enjoying Black Velvet now for sometime and it is currently my favourite milk based coffee around! I enjoy it as an espresso with milk but it also goes very well as a long black, to me it has a very unique flavour and aroma. The berry flavour is quote pronounced and cuts through milk perfectly. I will continue to buy it and recommend it to friends.

Black Velvet

My usual Danes coffee is Viking. I also enjoy Caramba. I am looking to explore other Danes coffee products and elected to try Black Velvet. Our family enjoys milk espresso coffee formats and across the board none in our family liked the flavour profile of Black Velvet. We found the initial taste was pleasant, however the follow through/residual berry taste was displeasing to us, experienced as an "cherry", more than the published "raspberry" notes. I will continue to explore other coffees in the line-up.
