Coffee order for vitamin deficiency? (5)


I believe the answer is:


'coffee order' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'vitamin deficiency?' is the wordplay.
'vitamin' becomes 'b' (B vitamin is an example).
'deficiency?' becomes 'lack' (synonyms).

'for' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for black that I've seen before include "Very darkest colour" , "bar" , "What's written on in the classroom" , "Opponent of nineteen dn (chess)" , "Served without milk" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
