Specialty coffee roasters Black Market Coffee were set to launch their exciting, brand spanking new coffee tasting bar and roaster this week – but plans have obviously changed.
Rather than closing their venue and standing down their four full-time staff members, owners Angus and Jess will be bringing their café and tasting bar experience straight to your car.
From Thursday, July 1st (their original launch date), Black Market Coffee will be opening a drive-thru and takeaway specialty coffee service from right outside their Marrickville warehouse roastery. With this drive thru they have found a way to bring their new coffee tasting and pairing experience safely to the community despite the lockdown. They have spent months getting the warehouse ready … training staff … eating lots of delicious food and they have found a way to still deliver the goods.
Tucked away from the main street, they’ll be pumping out fresh coffee and house baked foods from 7am–1pm every day (except Sunday). You’ll be able to order from a tight but carefully devised menu, including a $10 Rwandan Cold Brew (paired with a house-made chocolate cake with dulce de leche). Think eating sticky date pudding, sitting beside a fire with a single malt whisky. A moreish pairing that goes down a little too easy.Also on the menu is a $10 Brazilian v60 Batch Brew (the plum and cherry notes of the coffee are paired with a chamomile-infused vanilla sponge). All of this without having to leave your car!
Ordering is just as simple. All you have to do is:
1. Go to @blackmarket.coffee
2. Click the Marrickville Drive Thru link in the bio: https://bmr-marrickville.square.site/
3. Select your items
4. Drive thru or grab takeaway from their factory door
Although the lockdown has thrown Black Market Coffee’s launch plans out the window, Angus and Jess are all about finding alternate ways to service their community. They hope that with this drive-thru concept, if they can positively influence a person’s first hour in the morning, those ripples last for the rest of the day during these tough times.
