Merlo Coffee is built on a culture of hard work, good fun, amazing coffee and great customer service.

the perks

Free coffee on shift
While you’re working away, drink the coffee. We encourage you to try different blends, origins and brew methods.

Every Merlo staff member receives thorough coffee education and we provide ongoing training in the tools that you need to be successful in the coffee world.

Staff discount
You’ll get access to great pricing on our full range of products and a sweet deal on coffee for home.

Flexible shifts
We know there’s more to life than work. Many of our staff are students or have avid interests away from the coffee machine, so we can work with you to figure out something that suits.

Staff rewards
We love rewarding staff for a job well done, offering teams and individuals prizes for going above and beyond.

We’re always on the lookout for superstars to join our team, whether that be for a role in the café or in the kitchen at any Merlo Coffee store.

Here’s the things Merlo staff have in common:

  • A great attitude – positive, warm and friendly
