Bold, exotic, seductive. The Black Russian was created for one purpose: to bring you back wanting more. Immediately welcomed by delicate notes of dark toffee and a tinge of caramel, the cup’s complexity deepens with a pairing of raspberry acidity and hints of pistachio.
Beware of the Black Russian. Due warning must be given. As a latte or espresso, it might become the only coffee you’ll ever want to drink…

Common Ground was created from a love of coffee. The father-daughter team have successfully built their roastery and coffee bar upon three foundational pillars: an absolute focus on hospitality; an unwavering commitment to quality; and ongoing creativity. Everything Common Ground does stands up to these pillars, ensuring what they create is genuine, valuable, and most of all, inspirational.
Based at 750 North Road, Ormond, Melbourne, you can experience how a true small batch, artisanal approach to roasting can bring out the best flavour of the coffee beans.
Our capsules & coffee have been developed to deliver a true, classic espresso. To achieve this, we recommend you extract a 25ml shot of coffee (~15 second run time).
If you'd like, you can extend this to a 40ml shot (~25 second run time) but the balance of flavour and intensity will be different.
Here are some suggestions below (for milk coffee):
1x capsule (25 ml coffee) for 120 ml of milk: piccolo latte
2x capsules (50 ml coffee) for 210 ml of milk: small coffee
3x capsules (75 ml coffee) for 280 ml of milk: medium coffee
3x capsules (75 ml coffee) for 400 ml of milk: large coffee
