The best peppermint mocha was decadent. Great customer service. We loved the muffins and waffle. We purchased beans to take home. Great spot with a very nice vibe.

Excellent coffee here. The espresso bean is really well balanced and the skilled baristas do an excellent job of extracting the shot from them. Combine that with creamy steamed milk.... This place was heaven. They also have 24-hr cold brew (Japanese style!) and other styles...More

It was such a relief to find a coffee shop in Mammoth that serves Kyoto! If you haven't tried this slow drip cold brew--it's a must--but be careful, you might get hooked. I also tried their mocha and horchata latte. So delicious!

Really great coffee place. More than just your average run of the mill coffee. Cold brew, hot, and they have wine upstairs as well. A lot of character. The town can be tough to find internet in and this shop has superb internet. Highly recommend...More

This is NOT a chain, the coffees are individually made with attention to detail, by the baristas. They are happy to explain their grind, cold brew or any other question we might have. The dining area is always clean.

As much as I wanted to absolutely love this place, I really didn't. It was average but at well-above-average prices. I tried every type of coffee they had. I literally had four cups of coffee. They all tasted the same. The first cup, a pour-over,...More

I am a SoCal Native who has visited Mammoth every year since I was a baby. So, as a tourist who considers this my second home, I feel that I can truly say Black Velvet has the best quality of the coffee shops in town....More

By far my favorite coffee place in all of California. The slow drip hand made coffee is worth the wait. Arrive on a Wednesday for Wine tasting upstairs.
