La Colombe Pure Black Coffee is a product of the high-end coffee shop chain of the same name. Historically, ready to drink coffee has all skewed towards the milky, sugary latte drinks, so for a high end coffee chain to create a ready to drink product they really have to do something different. That’s exactly what La Colombe did with this product, which is, as the name suggests, coffee with no added sweetener or flavorings. They’ve done a really nice job in crafting the coffee inside the bottle (it’s steeped for 16 hours in wine tanks and pressed and filtered twice), with a bold brew that is very smooth from start to finish. If you are a coffee lover, this product will be perfect for you. The packaging is a 12 oz. amber glass bottle, the kind typically used for root beer or other sugary sodas. La Colombe has given it a black and white label that emulates the simple nature and bolsters the integrity of what’s inside the bottle. Plus, it’s a visually impactful design that catches the eye despite not being the most flashy looking label out there. Overall, La Colombe’s Pure Black is an exceptionally executed coffee drink that delivers in both flavor and design. Definitely one of the best coffee drinks we’ve ever had.
