Ink Review 

Supplies Used:

Smear Test (Dry Time):

  • 20-30 seconds – We found this ink was relatively middle to slightly wet writing, taking upwards of 25+ seconds to fully dry.

Drip Test (Water Resistance):

  • Low – Coffee Break lacks any water resistance and we found it all but washed away when water touched it.


  • Medium – When layered this ink had some good depth of color, going from lighter to deep chocolate brown with red hues like a dark roast coffee.

Ease of Cleaning:

  • High – This ink was cleaned out readily and left no staining.


  • High – From light yellow-brown to deep chocolate tones Coffee Break has a good amount of shading on the loops and crossed letters.


  • Medium – Not a super wet or dry ink, this was fairly middle of the road and kept up well in the medium LAMY nib.

 Packaging and Aesthetics:

  • This Colorverse ink comes in a small 30ml glass bottle with a faceted black cap. We found this was large enough to fill a LAMY or other pens with a slightly larger grip sections.
