About BLÆK

Our Journey

Sometimes having a delicious cup of coffee at hand isn’t easy at all.

In some moments and places it was not possible to combine good coffee with convenience. So we often had to drink aggressively mediocre coffee and sometimes we did not have any at all. The combination of love for great coffee and the disappointment we felt if we could not get any decent at all, motivated us to start our business.

Hi, BLÆK family!

Our company BLÆK, was founded in Hamburg in 2019. The name is already indicating, that we are inspired by the Scandinavian
way of living that we experienced
during our time
in Copenhagen.

We want to make Specialty Coffee more accessible for you! No brewer, grinder or scale necessary. Enjoy world-class coffee anywhere, in an instant.

In previous lives we have been baristas, dishwashers, bartenders, soldiers, cashiers, students, sailors, embassy employees, financial risk analysts, hobby skaters and world travellers. We did all kinds of stuff and we hope we can do many more in the future. No matter what goal we were chasing after, there was one thing that always stuck with us, it’s coffee. We think a good cup of coffee can always brighten your day.

Want to know more?

Obsessed with the idea of having a delicious cup of coffee that you can always bring with you in your bag or even in your pocket we started to suck in every piece of information about coffee that we found. We spent over one year developing our coffee until we were able to develop a product that lives up to our expectations. Our Specialty Grade Coffee from Huila, Columbia is exactly what we were looking for and the perfect mixture between complexity, sweetness and a hint of acidity. We hope this coffee also convinces you that Instant Coffee does not need to be bad at all. But that's not it.

Coffee tasting day!

Why? Although we are really into our well-balanced Huila coffee our journey just started and we are working on more yummy specialty coffees that we want to introduce you to. Do not be turned off by the instant, our focus was on the specialty throughout the whole process. Try it yourself!

Meeting day, fun day!
