The espresso martini is a drink worth celebrating, which is why Mr Black Spirits Co, leaders in coffee and spirits, are throwing the world’s first espresso martini festival at Melbourne’s Meat Market on Saturday 05 November 2016.
The Mr Black Festival of The Espresso Martini will play host to hundreds of coffee-and-liquor loving Victorians. With caffeinated creations from some of Australia’s best specialty coffee roasters, bars and coffee shops, food trucks, tunes and coffee pong. The Espresso Martini Festival will be a place for the people of Melbourne to taste, talk and get behind the legendary coffee industry.
Mr Black founder, Tom Baker said, “We know the people of Melbourne have a love affair with coffee, and the espresso martini is now one of the highest selling cocktails on lists everywhere. So we thought, why not come together to celebrate this shared love with the perfect pairing of coffee and booze.”
“Making a good espresso martini is not a hard task – It’s just three simple ingredients but our festival is a celebration of great drinks: espresso from leading speciality roasters, high-quality spirits, and of course the world’s best coffee liquor. We’re excited to get all our coffee and liquor friends in one place and have a cheeky coffee party”, he said.
Australia’s top coffee producers are on board for a day of caffeinated pleasure at the Espresso Martini Festival. Including: MILKLAB, Ketel One, Campos Coffee, Rushmore Coffee, The Kind Coffee Co, Beats Coffee and Two Birds Brewing.
