What is Bacha Coffee?
If you've ever wondered what the hype around Bacha Coffee is about, here are some facts - Bacha Coffee was founded in Marrakech in 1910, and specialises in 100% Arabica coffees! What makes it special is that each coffee harvest is hand-roasted separately. Bacha Coffee's beans are roasted at low temperatures in drum roasters using traditional slow methods which brings out its aroma!
They're also known for flakey croissants that have an iconic red, brown or green stripes on them. 😄 Bacha Coffee serves an extensive brunch menu as well.

According to a response on their Instagram page, here are their responses to our enquiry about their halal status:
"We do not use pork or lard in our products, however there may be alcohol in some of our products which is clearly indicated on our menu, and our ingredients may or may not be from halal sources."
"We do however offer vegetarian options. You can speak to our waiters should you have any additional questions about any specific dishes."
As of 3 February 2023, Bacha Coffee is not halal-certified. However, they do not use pork or lard in their bakes and dishes. You can still purchase their coffee beans and roasts. If you are thinking of dining at their cafe, we suggest you dine at your own discretion.
