Coffee Fanatic #5 – Todd Hansen

What is your favourite Merlo store? 

Springfield and Bowen Hills are tied. The Valley is a close second.

What is your typical coffee order? 

Triple shot caramel latte in a 12oz keep cup!

What is your favourite food to accompany your coffee? 

I often get a toasted ham and cheese croissant when we sit in for coffee. It goes down a treat!

How many coffees would you drink a day? 

Weekdays, 1 or 2. Weekends, 3 or more each day.


What is your favourite Merlo bean/blend? (e.g. BOM, house blend (espresso) etc). 

I like the regular house blend for my strong caramel lattes in store, but I often buy the bean of the month to have at home. I drink it black at home to get the full flavour, either espresso shots or French press.


What made you start drinking coffee initially? 

I really can’t pinpoint it. I’ve drank coffee for years. But I’ve become quite the coffee snob over the last few years, and nothing is as good as a barista made Merlo!


Who is your favourite person to have a coffee with? 

Well that would be my lovely lady, Kathy of course! She’s almost as much of a Merlo fanatic as I am!
