How to Make Your Coffee Spiritual

How to Make Your Coffee Spiritual

Last Updated on


Who knew that under that sharp white jacket and smooth persona, our guest today had a passion like no other – for coffee and coffee cocktails. Some would even call that passion – spiritual!

Martin Hudák, Co-Founder of Maybe Sammy in Sydney and Global Coffee Ambassador of Mr. Black, kept this passion under wraps, until his win at the World Coffee in Good Spirits Award in 2017.  Since walking away with the title, he’s gone from behind the American Bar at the Savoy, all the way around the world to Australia where he continues to win awards, including Best New International Bar for Maybe Sammy and the International Bartender of the Year.   

On today’s program, you’ll discover:

  • When he had his first Martini
  • Who taught him how to put on a tie
  • Where his favorite bars in the world are
  • How to get his special blend of coffee

Who’s on tap next:

We meet someone whom I met when we were both taking the WSET Level 2 class in Spirits. He definitely had the hometown advantage when it came to acing the test. Why? He was a bartender at the Connaught!
