Looks Great * Doesn't Deliver Brisbane CBD is abundant with coffee shops with a shop either changing hands or starting up every day. If you are considering a morning coffee or catch up with a friend/client, consider a different option. I purchased a regular takeaway cap on my way to the office on a Thursday morning. Other than being flooded with other pre-work coffee enthusiasts, the price of the coffee was more expensive than their competitor's. Once served, it took longer than 10 minutes to deliver my coffee. I've been to busier CBD spots who have produced a lot quicker. The atmosphere inside is loud and crowded. I generally like a full bodied, rounded tasting coffee that is noticeably strong but doesn't smack you in the face. Barmerlo's effort tasted like the Barista micro-waved a bottle of milk and forgot to put the coffee in. With other cafe's located in the area, I wont be hurrying a second attempt at a Barmerlo coffee.
Going to Barmerlo was always going to be a safe option. You can guarantee you will get a quality coffee. The coffee was cream and full flavoured. The staff however weren't as friendly as they usually are at the various Barmerlo around Brisbane. Never the less, this is a safe option for a your coffee fix and the amount of people passing through proves it.
