ABOUT OUR COFFEE
Specialty coffee is a term given to any coffee that scores above 80 points by a qualified Q Grader. But this is not all, Specialty Coffee is about closing the loop in the supply chain through ethical, sustainable and transparent practices. It is the care factor put into every phase of the entire coffee journey to produce the perfect cup for you.
Yes. All Stitch Coffee products have been carefully curated to ensure quality and supply chain integrity.
We do our best to package and ship your coffee within 2-3 days of roasting. This is to ensure that your coffee isn’t older than 7 days when you receive it. This is something that will vary upon regions that require a longer shipping time or for international orders.
We recommend storing your coffee in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight. This will ensure moisture and air don’t age the coffee too quickly and your coffee retains its flavour and quality for longer.
We roast our blends and single origins in different ways to ensure you get the most out of each cup.
Higgs Field Blend – Medium roast
Black Field Blend – Medium-Dark roast
Hobnob Blend – Medium-Dark roast
Dark Field Blend – Dark roast
We recommend our blends to be served with Milk or as a full-body black coffee.
Our single origins are roasted lighter, in an omni style. This is to highlight the flavours of the coffee best and allow for them to be used for either filter or espresso brew methods.
