Well I wasn't expecting much. Merlo is the brand and the last time I had a coffee here over a year ago it wasn't good. But I love the little space and it's seating outside in the dappled sun. So I am happy to say the coffee was lovely. Rich and smooth, good robust flavour, dark gold crema, lovely silky foam. No latte art but the coffee was too enjoyable to slam him for that. I grabbed a little macaron and it was a perfect 20 min chill out.
