In , Martin won the title of the World Coffee in Good Spirits Champion , a competition he took part in several times before winning it and embarking on a trip around the world. In his career of a barista and a bartender he has managed to combine both his love for coffee as well as alcohol. He is one of the biggest advocates of great hospitality. The smile is his best weapon, and so are great manners when it comes to serving his guests. Meeting Martin over several occasions and seeing him talk with a great passion for the two industries and the hospitality that should be at the forefront of any bar, I am thrilled we can share this interview with you. Martin is currently busy touring the world—you could catch him in New York City right now—and we cannot wait to see where he will go next! First of all, I would like to say that I don't like the term mixology. For me, it's a whole pack of everything around the hospitality.

A former senior bartender at The Savoy and World champion of coffee in good spirit Right after studies 10ya , I started my first job at the local cafe in my hometown of Slovakia. Falling in love with morning service of coffees and late night cocktails. Doing that for five years and carrying on the same passion to the Savoy allows me to compete at the world coffee cocktail stage for 4 years with results such as runner-up Melbourne , runner-up Shanghai and finally world title of champion Budapest Mr Black is a cold brew coffee liqueur which is roasted and distilled in-house north of Sydney, Australia. Craftsmanship which allows us to express real taste and flavors of coffee origin through our own coffee roasting and distilling. Also, our secret is ten times more coffee and less sugar in the bottle. So Mr. Black is real coffee liqueur and nothing else.

When god was creating the world he looked to the Czech Republic and Slovakia and said here, there will be bartenders. That's at least according to Martin Hudak, making this one part of the creation story the bible must have skipped over. Martin Hudak is yet another in this prestigious lineup to claim his inheritance on the global stage as a renowned Slovakian bartender. And just like the list above, his name is one to remember. Think about duos like Eric and Ago, Alex and Simone. Where are my Italians? Right now, that would be the guys at Maybe Sammy.
