Coffee colour = oil based finish on black stain. Mixing in a tiny bit of dark red mahogany stain in with the black will give you more of the “espresso” colour people are used to seeing at furniture stores – however, most of those finishes are sprayed on and cover up lots of grain detail, so replicating that look exactly is not possible if you don’t do the same.
