About the Roaster – Stitch Roasting
THE STITCH FAMILY – a team built on diversity…
The team is built upon a shared love for the world’s favourite beverage (FYI its coffee, though we do have a tea advocate amongst us) and a strong set of values. They’re a culmination of unique characters from diverse backgrounds from across the globe, but the Stitch family share a common principle, ‘to leave this earth better than we found it’. And their hope is to use coffee as a vehicle to achieve this.
“STITCH COFFEE was born of an idea that coffee doesn’t need to be a standalone – it can be mixed together. We realised at an early stage that the art of blending coffee is the same as tailoring a piece of cloth. As a result, we stitched together origins with different flavours to bring forward the ultimate cup characteristics for everyone to enjoy.” – The Stitch Family

About the beans:
Aricha is the name of the washing station where this coffee is processed. Edido is the village, or kebele,where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe. Aricha is about 8 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. We like the complex, almost tropical quality of coffees from Aricha, along with their juicy fruitiness and sugary, floral sweetness.
Coffees in Ethiopia are typically traceable to the washing station level, where smallholder farmers—many of whom own less than 1/2 hectare of land, and as little as 1/8 hectare on average—deliver cherry by weight to receive payment at a market rate. The coffee is sorted and processed into lots without retaining information about whose coffee harvest is in which bag or which lot. – Stitch Coffee Roasters
