Who is Buchi?

We are one big family of passionate foodies, fermenters, and fun loving peeps!

Meet Jase and Trace, current culture custodians of Buchi.

Jase (original founder and creator) bought Buchi to life from humble beginings in 2012 when he made the switch from booze to booch. He traded hangovers for a healthier lifestyle.

Trace joined the team in 2018 and is passionate about supporting farmers and celebrating the seasons with new and exciting flavours.

Buchi has grown like a little baby SCOBY into a thriving living culture spreading throughout QLD, NSW, VIC & ACT.

Our Team at Buchi HQ are a committed crew that love creating the truest kombucha around. And our amazing market crew are weekend warriors on the ground who have a love for Buchi like no other.

The Buchi Farm

Nestled in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland you will find a thriving oasis that is the Buchi Farm.

For years it has been a dream of our business & family to compost the tons and tons of spent tea leaves and organic fruit waste from the brewery and turn it into rich organic compost feeding the soil for future harvests.

Mid 2021 our farm dreams finally came true with the opportunity to lease land where we now grow our own ginger, turmeric and galangal and have recently extended our crops to include chilli, garlic, rosellas, mint and watermelons.

Not to mention in 2022 we also became the caretakers of Hinterland Feijoas orchard caretaking 643 mature Feijoa trees where, from March to April each year we bring tons and tons of organic fresh feijoas to our farmers markets accompanied  with delicious fermented feijoa beverages, jams and preserves.

Our health starts with the soil, and through composting, growing, harvesting, juicing, fermenting, all certified organically, we are intimately connected with the creation of our product from the ground up.

We feel very proud to be growing our very own roots and fruits!

What is Kombucha?

Kombucha [kom-boo-cha] has been fermented & brewed for over two millennia and has been said to have qualities that detoxify the body and energise the mind. It is a living beverage that is fermented using a blend of organic green and black tea, organic raw sugar (don’t worry, Kombucha converts this sugar to healthy enzymes that benefit your body), and a Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast (commonly called the SCOBY or Mother). The SCOBY feasts on the tea & sugar converting it into health giving organic acids such as gluconic, lactic and acetic and creating an effervescent, beverage with a slight tang. It’s packed with vitality and goodness and tastes great too!

The Buchi Difference!

Now, we have been brewing kombucha for quite some time, in fact well before it was a popular buzz word. Buchi has stood the test of time against big money and big food creating sub standard versions of kombucha.

You will know the BUCHI difference – you will taste it and you will FEEL it.
Feel it in your GUT, feel it in your soul.

If you are making a choice to drink kombucha for your health –
Make sure it’s a traditionally brewed Authentic brand.

When to enjoy Kombucha?

As a tasty healthy replacement to that sugary soft drink;
As a replacement to those mid – week beer and wine cravings;
A mixer or morning-after tonic to help cleanse your liver;
As a ‘between drinks’ drink so you can drink your friends under the table and still be legendary the next day;
As a delicious meal time drink for the family to stimulate taste buds and aid digestion;

Whenever you choose… Anywhere, anytime, because you are the boss!
