Black & Deadly Coffee Cocktails

Welcome to Morena Kawhe test lab!

Every Tuesday Phid and/or (me) Charis McAwesome livestream on testing and trying out cocktails with viewers. 

Here we get to hear from our customers what they think goes well, and together we concoct delicious and sometimes not-so-delicious-so-needs-work, food & drink recipes.  

We purposely create with our customers as this embodies the spirit of Morena Kawhe, in that coffee (kawhe) should be enjoyed and savoured, with family, friends or even just a moment to yourself. 

With that said, here are some of our recipes that were named and or created with our viewers in our first ever cocktail creation lab!

Mission: Make a cocktail using the Black and Deadly Coffee blend. 

Rules: Must be SIMPLE, QUICK & use no more than 4 ingredients (coffee and ice not included) 

First up: 

The Hung Black   

The hung black captures the dark roasted flavours of the Black and Deadly blend while creating a smooth finish for the whiskey. 

Ingredients for one glass: 

  • ¼ Orange
  • Irish Whiskey
  • Maple Syrup to sweeten
  • Black and Deadly Coffee from Morena Kawhe
  • Glass of Ice 


Make a brew of Black & Deadly coffee

Pour into glass:


Maple Syrup

Top up with Black and Deadly Coffee brew

Squeeze in orange.  Stir and drink

Pair: Ideally pair with a warm afternoon and some chill music.  Do not mix with work stuff 


Made on stream with Cory Turner, this wicked drink is basically a coffee and cinnamon delight that will leave your nostrils and your entire kitchen/bar smelling good enough to eat. 

Ingredients for one glass: 

  • ¼ glass of whisky
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • ½ tsp of ginger (powdered)
  • 1 heaped tsp of brown sugar
  • Black and Deadly Coffee brew
  • Glass of Ice


For this one you will need a source of heat, I recommend a stovetop at low-med heat

In a pot pour in




Brown Sugar

Stir until dissolved

Pour into glass

Top up with Black & Deadly Coffee brew and serve. 

Pair:  Serve with some sexy beats and a willingness to spoil yourself, because you deserve this 

Irish Summer

Irish Summer is called Irish Summer because we used Irish whiskey and combined it with berries.  You will need a plunger or French Press for this one. 

Ingredients for one glass: 

  • 1-2 Tblspn of Raspberries (frozen or fresh) 
  • Sugar Syrup
  • Irish Whiskey 
  • Black and Deadly coffee - Plunger grind


In your plunger/french press put in your raspberries

Add water and stir gently releasing the flavour, your water should turn a pinkish/red

Add in a scoop of Black and Deadly coffee, stir.

Press down on plunger

Pour brew into ice glass and whiskey and sugar syrup to taste. 

Pair:  With a hot afternoon or night, best paired with an aircon.  It is quite refreshing on a hot night, which also makes this really dangerous as you could easily down these and then all of a sudden be totally wasted, so I do recommend drinking wisely with this one.
