Went back today, fiery time in several years. Coffees were awful, and decided to drive to the Valley to get a good one. Coffee was too weak, despite only getting a small cup.
2 Flat Whites
Merlo 'espresso' is my all time favorite take home 'house blend', and the complimentary coffee you get with your purchase, is always of consistently superb quality. It's a busy place, tricky parking at times, but worth it - same as their outlet in the Valley!!!
The staff are excellent and no... Read more
This place was highly recommended to me. The coffee was amazing! The cafe is filled with coffee equipment for sale and you could spends a fair amount of time just looking (or chewing through the credit card!). As for atmosphere it isn't anything amazing, rather it is just simple with one large... Read more
I frequent this terrific ‘Torrefazione' (roastery) at least twice a week - and always grab a Short Macchiato. With the roastery on site, the coffee is naturally incredibly fresh. All of the staff are excellent baristas, and serve up superb coffee consistently (it is a very busy spot). If you... Read more
Merlo, What can I say about Merlo?
I was skeptical at first as I had tried Merlo at different cafe's and Merlo, just did not do it for me. Then I discover the roastery at Bowen Hills.
This Merlo roastery is located in a small industrial section in Bowen Hills and can be easily... Read more

I love how this cafe has an industrial feel! The coffee was fabulous, but I also loved seeing (and smelling!!) the roastery out the back. The layout of the cafe works really well. A great local place to grab a quality coffee.
Always seems really busy and I personally don't like waiting 5 to 10 minutes for a take away coffee. Though consistently if you like the merlo taste the coffees won't disappoint !
Situated in a big shed in what is becoming a busy short-cut street in amongst other industrial buildings, at first Merlo gives off a certain raw feel. With multiple counters, the busy workmen almost don't have to leave their vans to order an espresso from the outside front bar whilst those who... Read more
Undecided about this merlo location, coffee is a little hit and miss..
Consistently excellent coffee, and for free when you buy beans there. Always timely service no matter how many people are there. Doesn\'t have the atmosphere of a nice cafe but well worth going out of your way for
The smell of a fresh roast, single origin, blends and broad smile greets on my way to view the beautiful espresso machine available for purchase. A relaxed, polite young girl offer her help but the bulging credit card bill gets the better of me and i opt for what when arrives is a beautifully... Read more
I get my daily fix from Merlo BH. Nearly always hits, and very few misses. It can look busy, but don't let that put you off - the line up of lids always disappears quickly. Parking can be tricky and it's a busy little street - it's well worth the effort. This is a noisy place with lots... Read more
