2018 was a year of transformations for us.
We limited the food selection at the beginning of the year, and we started serving just two items - a sandwich (usually with something fermented), and a salad.
But that was not your usual salad. It was a salad that was built around one (or sometimes two) of our lacto-fermented vegetables. It was an instant hit and the whole year became the Year of the Probiotic Salad.
So each week we featured a different salad that was totally new and it never repeated throughout the entire year.
With 2019, we moved another step closer to our final goals.
So, what that means is: we moved away from serving food in the form of meals.
Now all we have, and all that we serve, is something that we wanted to do from the very beginning. We wanted, but we realized it was a bit too early at that particular time.
So, from the beginning of this month (January), all you'll be able to get in our Kombucha Cafe, foodwise, will be a Ferment Dégustation Plate, like the one on the picture above.
This tasting plate will include four of our ferments, picked by you and those ferments will come with some other things like avocado, hummus or tempeh, greens, some sourdough bread, etc.
The other thing available would be of course Kombucha.
Kombucha will be served in the form of Flights or by the bottle.
This was the final step to fully define us what we really are:
Bärbucha - Kombucha Café & Fermenterei.
Kombucha Café with a selection of around 21different types of high quality Kombucha.
All served in glass. Sorry, but no "on tap" booch here.
Fermenterei (or Fermentery, a made up term) which is similar in formation to a German "Brauerei" or Brewery. So if there is a Brewery, then we are a Ferment+ery.
A place where things get fermented.
We will also do our best to keep the reputation up, as seen on the pic below ("best Kombucha in town").
But that should not be that difficult, as quality is always the priority in all we do.
Here on this pic, you can see one of our Dégustation Plates, as well as the Kombucha Flight.
We are still waiting for our wood-boards to serve our Kombucha flights.
Those we should have at the end of January.
Once we do, all of our Kombucha will be available in the form of Flights.
Next, in the works for this new year, are Fermentation Jars that we'll be selling in our place. More details on that soon.
Then, since we have the new labels on the core of our Lacto-ferments, we will look into making them available through our online store.
We will also offer more Fermentation, and Kombucha Workshops, and we will re-design our Kombucha Set.
We have also redesigned our Kombucha labels and our Kombucha line up will change a bit.
So, that's enough to start this year with.
We're looking forward to all the changes.
Below is a nostalgic compilation of some of our beautiful, delicious and healthy salads of 2018.
