Media Tasting at Bacha Coffee
Rejoice to all coffee lovers, it’s time to treat yourself with some amazing doses of caffeine all hailed from Marrakech. Bacha Coffee sets its foot at Ion Orchard, being the first coffee room and boutique outside of Marrakech. Think of 100% Arabica coffee beans sourced from the world’s mostreputed coffee-producing countries like Africa, the Arabian Peninsula, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Asia, hand-roasted beans in Singapore, bespoke grinds and traditional preparation. Don’t be surprised to see over 200 single origin coffees, fine flavoured coffees, fine blended coffees and even naturally C0₂ decaffeinated coffees.
Spoilt for chances with so many coffee options available like Single Origin, Fine Flavoured Coffee and more. I’ve tried the Sidamo mountain single origin coffee from Ethiopia. It gave a full complex, crisp with a fragrant aroma and a hint of floral notes. My favourite goes to the full-bodied Seville Orange Arabica Coffee with a nice mix of zesty orange and cocoa, totally distinct and likeable. Ladies can unwind as you set your mind aside with the popular pick 1910 flavoured coffee evocative of fruity taste of wild strawberries and heavy cream. It is more acidic as compared to the rest, we enjoyed better with some cracked vanilla bean and rock sugar. My friend who enjoyed a stronger coffee, preferred the single-origin full-bodied coffee. We also had fun creating different flavour profile by adding raw sugar, cracked vanilla bean or the Signature Chantilly whipped cream.
The croissant treat is a good complement to the coffee. Let’s take a look at the different types of croissant like butter, chocolate, raspberry & cinnamon and orange almond. The croissants are fantastic, but the orange almond version elevates them, browned crispiness on the outside yet moist on the inside. It puffed up perfectly into delicate layers with a rich butter taste and not in the least bit greasy. Taste of the sun with this orange almond croissant that is complex in flavour and texture. Comes with a gently sweet and citrusy taste, serving as the antidote for winter blues. However, it’s kinda pricey for 2 pieces of croissants.
Croissant at S$8.00 (2 pieces); coffee at S$9.00 per pot.
Tried a few savoury dishes like scrambled eggs with black truffle and traditional Moroccan kefta meatballs, gravy, straw potato fries. The scrambled eggs were too moist and runny, probably not my type. I would prefer the traditional Moroccan kefta meatballs that come with a pleasant savoury dimension and very well-marinated.
Scrambled eggs with black truffle S$24.00.
Traditional Moroccan Kefta meatballs, gravy, straw potato fries S$28.00.
The cheese can be overpowering for some but it works fine with this pandan cheesecake. Creamy light cheesecake complements the light pandan fragrance.
Pandan Cheesecake at S$9.00.
This bittersweet tiramisu melts in the mouth with a strong expresso based taste and crunchy coffee jelly.
Tiramisu, Rwanda Superior Coffee at S$12.
Not forgetting the elegant interior decor featuring an art of refined living, with carved and painted cedar wood ceilings, black and white chequered marble flooring, saffron-stained porticos and some of the country’s finest and most colourful zellige mosaics. Time to pamper yourself or gift your loved one this “tai tai” high tea experience with assorted gourmet sweet croissants, coffee cakes, savoury mains, dessert with a nice cuppa of Arabica coffee. The tables are pretty close to each other and I’ve accidentally overheard the conversation from the next table.
