Black Coffee is an independent publishing house specializing in contemporary North American literature. Their goal is to give prominence to novice authors while recovering unpublished or unjustly forgotten works, with particular attention to independent realities and the most courageous female voices. Within the catalog works of fiction, non-fiction (gathered in the series "This Land" and "Americana") and poetry, Black Coffee aims to do justice to the complexity and richness of the current American and Canadian literary landscape, and thus replace ancient stereotypes now well rooted with a more updated and authentic imagery.
Black Coffee is the Italian publisher of the literary magazine Freeman's, directed by the critic and poet John Freeman who also edited the New American Poetry series for the publishing house together with the translator Damiano Abeni.
Black Coffee is the first Italian independent publisher to produce a podcast. Conceived and conducted by Marta Ciccolari Micaldi, aka La McMusa, Black Coffee Sounds Good is released monthly on all dedicated platforms.
