One side effect of Australia’s love of coffee has been the proliferation of brewing methods that promise to bring the very best out of our morning pick-me up. For us simple latte-with-one-sugar drinkers, the amount of techniques and apparatus popping up can be intimidating, but Merlo Coffee is making it easier by giving us the chance to try a few brewing methods all at once. Merlo’s Coffee 3 Ways project will let drinkers sample the bean of the month as a classic espresso, a V60 pour over and through Aeropress immersion – poured and presented in classy fashion.
Nine of Merlo’s torrefaziones in southeast Queensland will be getting on board from November onwards. Expert baristas will be brewing three shots from the bean of the month, which has been sourced from small-scale producers in La Montanita in El Salvador. If you like your coffee strong and intense, light and sweet or smooth and rich, you’ll be able to find a style to your liking.
