Who is Emily Fitch-Deeley?
Emily Fitch-Deeley is the founder of Fitch Brew, a UK-based coffee brewery launched in June 2017 with one simple mission; to challenge the way people see and drink coffee. After becoming obsessed with Cold Brew coffee during a trip to the US, Emily knew this was a category she wanted to explore back in the UK. As soon as she landed back at Heathrow, she quit her job and FITCH was born. To get the business going Emily took to crowdfunding with Crowdcube and in a mere 29 hours the capital was raised to launch the business, and she closed the round.
