In brief: Yes and no, or maybe

The easiest way to answer your question is to stop drinking black coffee for a few days and see.
Or ask yourself if you had the problem before you started to drink black coffee daily. If you have been drinking coffee daily for a long time and acne recently breakout, then it probably is not the coffee, and if you only started recently and acne breakout followed then maybe it is the culprit.
