Discover the history behind your Espresso coffee

Roasted daily in our Brisbane warehouse, our Espresso blend is a medium-dark roast coffee, created from carefully sourced coffee beans from around the world. Each bean is cupped on arrival to our roastery and put through stringent Q-grading, to ensure the flavour and quality is consistent, something that Merlo is known for.

It starts with a Colombian coffee base with rich cocoa flavours. Then we add Papua New Guinea coffees, known for their soft milk chocolate sweetness. Followed by full-bodied Brazilian beans and light spice flavour notes from Costa Rica.

Our Espresso coffee is the epitome of selected beans from around the world. We’ve chosen the best coffee beans for espresso based on the varietal of coffee trees, the altitude of the crops and the dedication of our partner producers.

We finish off with a dash of silky-smooth beans from Nicaragua. It’s big in flavour, and boldly beautiful to drink.
