To celebrate Brisbane-based Merlo Coffee taking yet another step towards World's Best Practice milestone and the arrival of the Brambati ASM Colour Sorter, direct from Italy; we have potentially the PERFECT prize for the Coffee Connoisseur - a $250 Merlo Coffee Hamper!
Considered the best in the world, the ASM Colour Sorter identifies and selects roasted beans by colour, ensuring the best, most consistent quality of coffee is produced. Merlo is the only company in Queensland to have this machine and is the second in Australia, behind Coca-Cola.
Australia's leading independently owned and operated coffee roaster, Merlo is Queensland-headquartered and Italian-born, famed for its commitment to freshly roasted espresso coffee. While Merlo's name grows in its geographical spread, its roots are found in an unerring commitment to authenticity and flavour by way of a classic Queensland family tale. It began with Founder Dean Merlo's father immigrating to Australia from Italy in 1958 bringing with him Queensland's first espresso coffee machine to be used in his soon to become famous Milano's restaurant. In doing so, he single-handedly kicked off Queensland's coffee revolution. Working part-time in the restaurant gave Dean the foundations for his true Italian-bred passion for customer service that today is a cornerstone of the Merlo Coffee experience. Graced with coffee in his DNA, in the years that followed Dean made a monumental leap from barrister to barista to roaster, and the rest is history, delicious rich, coffee history.
Merlo now owns and operates 16 of its own cafes in addition to supplying a freshly roasted coffee to over 1,000 cafes and restaurants around the country. Merlo also ships coffee online to customers throughout Australia and overseas. For more information, sign up as a Friend of Merlo at merlo.com.au
