About Merit Coffee Co.
Established in 2009, the Merit Coffee Co. team travels to Central/South America and Africa, finding the best quality coffee there is, and works directly with the farmers. The coffee gets shipped to Texas where it is roasted on a 45 and 25kg Probat roaster, custom built for Merit in Germany. Merit takes responsibility for the quality of coffee in your cup very seriously, as well as creating an environment where you can enjoy that coffee, get some work done, connect with friends, or even escape the busyness of life for a bit. Its cafes are focused on the local community and neighborhoods that they are in.

With sourcing and roasting done, the responsibility then falls on Merit's baristas shoulders to brew. The company's baristas are amazing and approachable coffee professionals who love learning names, what your favorite drink is, and finding out how that job interview went last week – all while crafting a delicious cup of coffee that was sourced, roasted and brewed for you.
