Black Coffee is all about offering the best English-language content to international businesses. All our colleagues are skilled professional journalists and writers. They have worked for some of the world’s finest news organisations and agencies.
Started by Jonathan Kent in 2010 Black Coffee has always striven to do communications differently. Our tagline ‘communications straight, no froth’ is a simple challenge to all those PR and content companies offering media relations without inside knowledge of the media, and content without being able to write and create content well.
Companies that pride themselves on excellence, whether it be in technology, products or services, need to fill their channels with material that reflects that culture. And in a world of free content only the best demands people’s time and attention.
Jonathan Kent has spent more than 25 years in the media working for the BBC, Reuters, Newsweek and many other respected news organisations as a political reporter, foreign correspondent and programme maker & presenter.
He has helped a wide range of businesses manage their PR, communications and content and has advised major institutions including the UN. Jonathan read philosophy and theology at Oxford University.
