The Story of Memli
Memli Coffee Lab, founded in 2019 by Mehmet Sogan, is a pioneering boutique coffee roaster that has redefined the landscape of specialty coffee through an innovative approach centered on sensory experience, transparency, and education. With a passion for coffee that spans continents and years of dedicated coffee education in London, Sogan embarked on a journey to bring a fresh perspective to the world of coffee roasting upon his arrival in the United States.
Mehmet Sogan's journey into the world of coffee began after he obtained his engineering degree. Driven by a fervent curiosity, he embarked on months of extensive travel to coffee origins, immersing himself in the diverse cultures and flavors that define the global coffee landscape. His relentless pursuit of knowledge led him to London, where he honed his expertise in the art of coffee. Drawing from these experiences, Sogan established Memli Coffee Lab, a brand that would transform the coffee experience paradigm.
