The Earth Moved Under Our Feet

Buchi Earth is by far our most complex brew. It's a blend of 20 different ingredients and includes multiple stages of production, including hand-roasting the burdock and dandelion one skillet at a time in a cast iron. It's a process which takes hours. Despite the fact that all those roasted roots make the brewery smell delicious for days, it's our brew crew's most labor intensive flavor -- and to be frank, the biggest pain in the ass to produce.

50 Shades of Blue

If you read our blog, hopefully you have a sense Buchi is committed to evolving into a more responsible and sustainable company. Sometimes this means simple decisions, like choosing compostable cups over styrofoam. No brainer. Or using GMO-free ingredients -- that's a given. But the more you look into sustainability the more nuances and shades of gray (or in this case blue) start to appear. You are faced with decisions which aren't win-win, and then it comes down to your values and how and when to express them when the ideal option doesn't exist yet.

FTCLDF (for short) is a grassroots social profit protecting our food sovereignty by defending the legal rights of small farmers. Artisan food producers who make raw foods like Buchi are at risk every day of being shut down or stifled by regulators who don't understand kombucha or the benefit of consuming living foods.
