Merlo Coffee began more than 29 years ago with a simple philosophy – freshly roasted coffee served by passionate people. This philosophy has never changed. The team take great care in sourcing the highest quality beans from around the world and roasting daily to produce fresh coffee that's full of flavour.

Coffee is woven into the Merlo family history. Founder Dean Melo, learnt the art of hospitality and how to craft the perfect espresso from his father Gino Merlo – a second generation restauranteur. True to its form, the James St outpost serves dine in and takeaway coffee seven days a week, and with seven unique blends and nine single origin beans, there is a flavour to suit every palette.
