Go and look for the BlackCock!

As cocky as the title of this article may sound, you’ll discover what’s the BlackCock of  Cluj-Napoca only after reading it! It’s nothing you might be smiling about so prepare to be surprised!

The idea of the BlackCock came up a few years ago when Raul, a young Romanian who was working as a barista for the largest Coffee To Go company from Vienna, decided to return home but also to continue working in this business on his own, therefore to become an entrepreneur.

Raul tasted his first coffee about 10 years ago and discovered the magic, the precision and the history that were behind the black color of the drink, so he decided to investigate more on this topics and also to study the coffee preparation techniques.

The quality of the coffee, the variety of the drinks and for sure the brand itself distinguish BlackCock from any other Coffee To Go business from Cluj-Napoca. The black Piaggio is a real eye-catcher and its position next to the lake of the Iulius Park are also big assets of the business.

For those who might wonder why the name of the brand is BlackCock, Raul explains that he was inspired by those moments of his childhood when he was spending his holidays in the countryside and the cock was always the first one of the fowls to wake everyone up as precise as an alarm clock. Considering the fact that Cluj-Napoca is a city where people are always in a hurry and moreover, you generally don’t see and hear any fowl, Raul decided to replace it with a delightful taste of the best coffee. After mixing up and trying out several combinations, Raul found the perfect mix of 40% Robusta and 60% Arabica brought from Southern Italy. Next to the best quality of its award winning coffee machine, the human part of the coffee making process is also highly important. The secrets known by someone who worked a couple of years in this industry will easily help him to fix both the coffee and the grinding equipment according to the humidity and the outside temperature.

Furthermore, the plans of the young entrepreneur are to extend his brand during next year with two more selling spots to reach as many people as possible and in about 3-5 years to become the biggest mobile coffee selling spot of the country.

Finally, if you happen to walk around Iulius Park, go and taste the drinks of the BlackCock. My suggestion for hot summer days is a delicious and cold Frappe with hazelnut syrup. It’s obviously one of the most appropriate drinks for a sunny day, so if you need a perfect energizer, you might have found it already!

Support the small Romanian businesses and help them grow!
