If beer is the nectar of the gods, coffee surely is the juice of the heavens. Especially BATCHIES!

What the hell is a Batchie, do I need to look like I’ve just left Coachella to order one and why is asking for an extra hot, half strength, oat milk latte with caramel syrup and chocolate on top such an abomination? Grab your coffee (however you have it) and let us take you on a journey.

Believed to have its origins in Ethiopia, history tells us that the roasting of “Kaffa” plants (making coffee) began in the 13th century. A bit like the history of beer, coffee is steeped in controversy. Some countries banning it due to its intoxicating effects, others using it in ceremony (imagine a coffee prohibition? Dead!)

Again, like our best friends; Hops, the climate and soil (terroir) that the almighty coffee bean is grown in impacts its flavour profile immensely. Thus why batch brews are so damn tantalising. They are often single origin expressions of a the beloved bean.
