Say goodbye to bland beverages and hello to our fiercely caffeinated coffee creations. We've got you covered with the best and most creative ways to keep your love going strong. So, pour yourself a cup and let's get started on a caffeine-fueled love affair. 

The Energy Boost Beetroot Latte

Get ready for the ultimate coffee experience that combines bold flavour, a pop of pink, and a caffeine boost to take your mind and body to the next level. Our energy boost beetroot latte isn't just a pretty pink drink, it's packed with all the healthy benefits of beetroots like fibre, vitamin C, folate, potassium, manganese, and iron. With an added Black Insomnia caffeine kick, you'll be ready for any adventure your Valentine's Day has in store. 


Steps for crafting a Honey & Beetroot Latte

  1. Charge up your brew: Use your Nespresso machine to easily make a highly caffeinated espresso shot. Or, for a more traditional method, grind 18g of our high-caffeine coffee beans into a fine consistency specifically for espresso, then brew them using your espresso machine. (Tip: witness the transformation from a plain shot of espresso to a mesmerising drink by using a transparent glass to prepare your shot.) 
  2. Stir it up: Mix honey into the espresso shot slowly, creating a smooth and sweet base.
  3. A touch of pink: Blend almond milk and beetroot powder together until they're well combined.
  4. Foamy wonder: Heat the milk mixture by steaming or frothing it until it's rich and foamy.
  5. Pour and enjoy: Pour the warm pink milk mixture into the espresso shot and marvel at the final result.

Chocolate Espresso Martini

Raise the bar on Valentine's Day romance with our strong and smooth Chocolate Espresso Martini. Our special version is packed with a heavy dose of caffeine to add an extra spark to your special night.

Whether as a dessert substitute or an after-dinner pick-me-up, this drink will leave you both hooked, making it the perfect way to celebrate love.


  • 2 oz high-quality semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup chilled brewed espresso using Black Insomnia’s whole beans
  • 1/4 cup water

How to make a Chocolate-rimmed Espresso Martini

  1. Combine 2 ounces of fine-quality semisweet chocolate and 1/4 cup of water in a small bowl. Stir until well mixed.

  3. Gently dip the edges of 2 martini glasses into the melted chocolate, letting any excess chocolate run back into the bowl. Place the glasses in the freezer for a quick 10-minute chill.
  4. Blend together 1/3 cup of our energizing espresso, 1/3 cup vanilla-flavored vodka, and 1/3 cup Kahlua in a pitcher.
  5. Pour the Kahlua mixture into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake for 10 seconds.
  6. Serve your caffeinated delight by straining the mixture into the chocolate-rimmed martini glasses, topped with a fresh strawberry.
