Stash Coffee’s story is intertwined with that of Singlefile Wines. The co-founders of both businesses are Phil and Viv Snowden, the owners of the Singlefile Wines property, who moved to Denmark and started producing excellent cool climate wines in 2008. Their son-in-law Patrick Corbett soon joined them by taking on the role of CEO and their younger daughter Pam Corbett stepped into the business as well. When the Snowden’s elder daughter Nina Bradshaw moved to Denmark with her family, the family branched out into creating a specialty coffee roasting business with Nina’s husband, Brad Bradshaw as the roaster.
