Roasted with Mindfulness
We believe in challenging the status quo by reverse engineering our approach. At Memli Coffee Lab, we are continuously innovating our approach to specialty coffee. We are experimenting a new vision about your daily coffee routine by offering some mindfulness and meaning to your experience. As we say all the time: “The Best Coffee Is The One You Like"
We believe in passion, transparency and mindfulness in every coffee we roast.
The way we respect those values is by bringing awareness, ethic, equity and mentoring in everything we do from sourcing to delivering and reveal the beauty of our coffee from the inside-out.
This result in excellent quality coffee, consistency and awesome people. We believe Memli’s mantra to be part of a lifestyle to help people reconnect with themselves and find the keys to their inner goals.
Our mission is to offer sensory excellence by pairing your hobby and interests with coffee in order to promote producer's hard labor. That way quality will be improved year after year. Batch by Batch we are striving for a better connection and transparency with coffee farmers. The sensory aspect of coffee is a salient point for us. We put effort in educating our community to give them unique knowledge and skills.

It was all a dream
I believe that the first step to solve any issue is to communicate. That’s why I value trust, communication and mindfulness in everything I do. I remember the first coffee I brew at the age of 7 – a dark roasted Turkish coffee for our guests. Although this first sip gave me a bitter memory of coffee, the aspect of sharing it with others added some sweetness to it.
While visiting Panama, Colombia, and Brazil, I learned about coffee farm culture and worked as a barista. I got my hands dirty at the farm in Colombia where I realized the hardship to get a cup of coffee.
In the meantime, I obtain my master degree in thermodynamics. I believe that we don’t know what we don’t know. In 2017, I launched a Specialty Coffee Tasting Workshop to bring awareness and shed lights on what, how and why Specialty coffee is. Today, it is one of the most popular experience on Airbnb in London with over 1000 guests across the world. But once again, I knew I needed to widen the specialty coffee scene to more people.
Experience and sensory became my focus, with hours of SCA training and competitions, along with strong scientific background. Moved to Houston, Texas in 2019, I launched Memli Coffee Lab and proposed an innovative approach to coffee roasting with sensory experiments and education.
