Quality & consistency

Merlo in your café

At our roasting house, quality control is paramount. We work to invest in the highest quality green beans from around the world, with each shipment cupped upon its arrival from origin to ensure they are of the highest standard. From these origins we have created seven blends with unique flavour profiles to suit a range of tastes.

Our Brambati roaster is state of the art, with everything from temperature, drum speed and roast time meticulously tracked and recorded.

Quality coffee is our passion and we work hard to share it with you. We’ve grown substantially over the last 20 years, but have remained independently owned. This allows the freedom to focus on the two things that have taken us this far – quality and service. We are a family business and value our community of loyal customers.

The perfect cup

Our account managers are happy to pass on their knowledge and industry experience both in the lead up to opening day and as part of our ongoing support.

Whether you prefer to train at our facility in Fortitude Valley or onsite in your cafe, we are here to support you and your staff in preparing the perfect cup of coffee for your customers.

We will calibrate your machine and grinder and provide training on how to maintain your equipment to keep everything running smoothly.

In the event of a breakdown, our account managers will do their best to fix it and if they can’t we will bring someone in who can.

We have a network of technicians to service and fix any major breakdowns and offer a 24/7 hotline (0410 653 370) for any emergencies that may occur after hours or on the weekends.
