Start Here


I’m Shannon Larkins, chief brand barista at Blackcoffee. We help entrepreneurs and organizations build businesses that people fall in love with - and stay madly in love with - year after year.

It starts with brand.

Brand is the thread count of your company’s red carpet. It’s how it feels to your clients when they walk it. It’s the luxury of your offerings and intelligence of your pricing. The beauty of your website and ease of its navigation. It’s every campaign you roll out, every customer you help. Every crisis you handle gracefully and every one you avoid to begin with.

Your journey to creating a brand your customers fall in love with starts here.

The reaction to the brand and website launch was overwhelming. It’s reach already established as I immediately received a call out of the blue from an energy capital group.

It’s a privilege to partner with the Blackcoffee team. Their work has transformed my business and helped me build a solid foundation that has grown my success year over year.

On my very first call with Shannon, she got me, she got my business and not just the way I saw it - BEYOND the way I saw it. She had this clear vision of where I needed to go and how I needed to get there, and suddenly I was excited about my work again, as my whole perspective on the future of my company just blew wide open.

The process that Shannon takes her clients through is truly a journey of awareness, causing you to look at your business in new and exciting ways. When you begin to view your business as a brand, it’s exhilarating. The love and appreciation I have for the brand that the Blackcoffee team created cannot be measured in mere words. My investment in your services will positively impact my business for years to come, of that I have no doubt.

The Luxury Travel Agency

COVID decimated many business sectors in 2020 and 2021. It’s estimated that up to 75 per cent of businesses in the travel and hospitality sector failed or at least failed to thrive during this time. Only the most thoughtful and strategic business owners are coming out into a post-COVID reality ready to capitalize on pent up demand.

Our friends at The Luxury Travel Agency knew they wanted to be survivors so they seized the opportunity to rebrand and redo their dated website during the dark days of the pandemic. Read how we helped here.
