“We wanted to celebrate International Coffee Day in style this year after opening our Broadway store in May,” said Stitch Coffee founder, Nawar Adra. “We love what the guys do at Tokyo Lamington so we knew they could bring our coffee to life in a way that was really cool and unique.”
For the collaboration, Stitch is giving a sneak peak of its two first-release Colombian Cinnamon and Mandarin coffees. Created using an innovative anaerobic fermentation process at farm level, these coffees are made by caramelising the natural sugars within the seeds to create a unique cinnamon and mandarin flavours that are found in the respective coffee.
“Stitch gave us a first look at their new flavours, so we brewed them, drank them together and then wrote down absolutely everything we could taste within the flavour profiles,” added Tokyo Lamington’s Eddie Stewart. “We didn’t have to add any cinnamon or mandarin – that’s all the coffee – we just brought our own unique Tokyo Lamington take and added some strong textures like coffee jelly, gingerbread and meringue to bring it all together.”
Available this weekend only until sold out, the limited-edition lamingtons come in a $20 bundle, which includes one of each #InternationalCoffeeDay lamington flavour, plus two of Stitch Coffee’s brand new Colombian Cinnamon and Mandarin drip bags.
The exclusive flavours will be available from Tokyo Lamington in Newtown from Friday to Sunday and at Stitch Coffee Broadway from Friday to Saturday.
