In 1999 Hans Pronk found himself in a small cafe behind a coffee machine. In 2007 he took all he had learnt and put it into his very first roast, creating a unique brew of specialty coffee from around the world. Today, he can still be found behind his coffee machine, perfecting his craft.
We take coffee seriously, sourcing some mighty fine coffees, roasting with precision and delivering in great taste. We couple this with the best service and training we can muster. At the end of the day, we want to do all we can to give you a great tasting brew.
Merito Coffee has everything from single origin filter coffee to a personalised barista course, French press / plunger coffee to gifts for coffee lovers - whether it be the Aeropress coffee brewer or other coffee makers. Take it home, to the office or wherever your travels lead - all available through our online coffee subscriptions or single coffee orders. We do wholesale coffee too if you are thinking of becoming the next best café in New Zealand, just get in touch and we will drop by and have a chat.
Have a look at our coffee brewing guide for some tips and tricks on brewing espresso, perfecting the flat white or macchiato. You can spend an hour or two with our head coffee roaster and barista trainer too if you want to learn a little more about creating the perfect brew at home, brush up on your skills at work, or just have a good time learning something new and interesting.
It is with humility we say that we are often told we have the best coffee in Auckland across our cafes, and across the country, the best coffee in NZ, by our many loyal customers! We are thankful for the relationships we have built over the years and continue to build!
Hope to see you soon,
