Our Story

Coffee as you are

Everything starts with today.
This minute.
This second.

Let’s enjoy this sip of coffee and look around to find the beauty in our surroundings.


Philosophy

The story of the Meron brand started in 2015, when a team of Cluj investors created a unique concept for the specialty coffee space in Romania, outlining the first location of a chain to be developed in franchise. In 2019, Meron already has 11 locations: 7 in Cluj-Napoca, 1 in Bucharest, 1 in Satu Mare, 1 in Oradea and 1 in Zalău, being among the first franchises to cross Transylvania’s borders.

Our concept starts from the greek word “Meron”, which means “days”. This is why we want to give you the boost for a great and amazing day: amazing tasting notes, delightful company and a quick reminder that life is about NOW, about THIS MOMENT. The coffee culture is a belief that we guide by daily, and for this, we pay more attention to the methods of coffee preparation (espresso and brew), but also to the latest trends in equipment and accessories that are so necessary for a passionate barista.

On a mission to cherish and share specialty coffee

Our mission is to promote the specialty coffee industry. We roast coffee. We drink coffee. We learn coffee. We share coffee. Our passion for specialty coffee is shared with farmers who closely monitor and control the growing, harvesting and processing stages of the coffee beans.

The quality delivered is very important. The picking process can make the difference between a low-value commodity coffee and one destined for higher prices and more demanding markets. That is why we choose our coffee beans directly from the farm.

A specialty coffee journey

We change the coffee origins at least once a month, with long-sought varieties and obtained from various family farms and traditionally in communities dedicated to coffee plantations. You can feel the joy (and the coffee smell), every single time a new origin comes into our roastery. We’re not serving you only a certain type of coffee. Through our always changing origins, we’re taking you a coffee journey. From all over the world, we chose to enrich the taste of Meron coffee with many variations from different regions: Rwanda, Ethiopia, Brazil, Guatemala, Panama, El Salvador, Costa Rica and many others.

Freshly roasted in Transylvania at Meron Roastery

We opened Meron Roastery in the name of better specialty coffee. Our roastery is a treat for coffee lovers, an experience for the roasters, an opportunity to grab a bag of unique coffee. Discover the freshly roasted in Transylvania beans. We roast for our own coffeeshops. We roast for businesses that appreciate a fine specialty coffee in their own location. We roast for the #peopleofMeron who want to feel the Meron experience at home.

Because communication is likely to become more superficial as technology advances, Meron aims to be the place where people find balance and willingness. Our concept starts from the word “meron” which has roots in Greek and means days. We wanted to create a place where people would receive their energy dose for the whole day.  – Bogdan Ciocian, CEO Meron
