It feels a little lonely in here.

Let's change that.

Merlo Blue goes Green

Join us in our war on waste

We’ve teamed up with BioPak – global leaders in the production of environmentally-sustainable packaging – on a crusade to keep more than 3 million Merlo takeaway cups out of landfill, by introducing fully compostable, eco-friendly packaging for our customers.

Now, you can do something good for the earth by dropping a Merlo BioCup in our collection bins outside any Merlo Coffee store. These cups and lids will be combined with Merlo’s coffee grounds, food scraps and packaging and within eight days will be transformed into organic compost.

How does it work?

Doing our part

Our Alto Blend, Brazilian Single Origin and Decaf Blend all come from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms which are managed according to rigorous environmental, social and economic criteria.

Both our Eagle Farm and Bowen Hills warehouses have solar panels installed to offset the large amount of electricity used to power our roasting machines.

The husks from our roasters are compacted into pellets which can be used in the garden, as a fire starter or in worm farms.

How you can help

We encourage the use of a reusable cup for takeaway coffees. Buy one from us and we’ll give your first coffee free and a discount for every coffee in your cup after that!

Bring your clean coffee tin or bag (valve intact) back in for a refill and we’ll give you a $1 discount.

We encourage the use of coffee grounds in garden beds and compost bins. Bring in a reusable container to collect some from a store today.

Our Difference

BioCups from BioPak are the first and only products of their kind to be certified carbon neutral, B Corp, and commercially compostable to AS4736 standards in Australia and New Zealand.

From June 20 - July 21, Merlo Coffee have made the below positive contributions by partnering with BioPak to replace conventional foodservice packaging.
