March 2019: Stash Coffee

March 2019: Stash Coffee

We are thrilled to announce our March featured roaster!

We are featuring coffee roasted by a family of curators. The team at Stash started with wine and for the past three years have been roasting their own coffee. Initially for use at the cellar door, Stash Coffee is located in the beautiful Denmark wine region, about 400km South of Perth.

Experimenting with different techniques as all great roasters do, head roaster Brad Bradshaw has been successful crossing over the two very different worlds of wine and coffee.

“In 2018, in collaboration with Singlefile’s winemakers, roaster Brad got hold of some used French oak wine barrels and began experimenting with barrel-ageing green coffee beans. Some of the ‘pinot noir’ infused beans eventually made their way into the coffee that was being roasted for Singlefile Wines and the Singlefile Cellar Door blend was created. In November 2018 the Cellar Door blend was awarded a bronze medal at the Golden Bean Coffee Roasters Competition.”


“Tucked away behind award-winning vines, close to the southernmost point of Western Australia, the Stash Coffee roastery is far from the hustle of Perth. Located on the same beautiful vineyard as Singlefile Wines, we are as excited and dedicated to high quality coffee production as we are to fine wine. If you visit Denmark drop in and say hi. You may find us walking in the vineyards in the morning, talking coffee all day and tasting newly released wines in the evening. We are part of a small and vibrant community immersed in fine wine, local and seasonal food, craft beer, art and music. Every day brings new memorable experiences.”


“When we consider the effort that it takes to grow and produce specialty coffee at origin it drives us to honour the efforts of the farmers and producers. We hope to showcase each coffee at its best. We roast each origin individually then blend after roasting to ensure each bean is optimally roasted. Our roast profiles are created with input from the world's leading roasting consultants and using in-house expertise that spans three decades of coffee industry experience.”
