Bacha Coffee is a household name to many of us at this point. Since it surfaced in Singapore a few years ago at ION Orchard, six locations have opened to long queues and returning customers.

Located within the airside of Changi International Airport Terminal 3, a seventh boutique and takeaway location is now ready.

It is the largest store in the world yet opened by Bacha Coffee.

However, as it is found inside the transit area, that would mean you would need to be travelling (or working within Changi Airport) to make your way there.

Some background info: They take their name “Bacha” from the Dar el Bacha palace in Marrakech, Morocco, which is built in 1910.

The palace united personalities and celebrities over pots of arabica coffee in its long history.

One of the strong suits of Bacha Coffee is its branding and aesthetic of its stores. Their stores are immediately recognisable from its glittering tins of coffee lining the walls.

At the newest boutique, this is taken to new heights – quite literally.

Named “The Arch”, the curved cut-out of the entrance rises from the floor to the tall ceiling, with a huge red ribbon carrying the brand name laid across.

The storefront is brightly illuminated with golden glows, signalling royalty and luxury.

Look up to the ceiling when you enter. There is a hand-painted stained-glass piece in red and blue, which is quite a sight to find in a coffee store.

The coffee is all about 100% Arabica, with more than 200 varieties sourced from diverse regions across the world. Bring home bags of the beans or have a cuppa before you fly.

While the coffee selection may look overwhelming at first, they do include the taste profile and strength, and the serving staff can guide you along to make a preferred selection.

Exclusive to the airport boutique store is an Expedition Coffee Collection, which comes with two ($60), four ($110), or six ($160) choices of coffee.

If you would like to drink something on the spot, coffees are available only for takeaway (and not dine-in), priced at $7.48 in hot or iced, served in a tray with vanilla bean Chantilly cream and raw sugar stick.

Choices include Sidamo Mountain Coffee, Seville Orange Coffee, Mount Kenya Coffee, Lagoa Coffee, Magdalena Coffee, 1910 Coffee, Singapore Morning Coffee and I Love Paris Coffee and more.

However, it appears that they are still getting a hang of things, service may be not as fast as expected, and the queue did move rather slowly. So be warned if you have a flight to catch.

A selection of pastries can be found, mainly selections of croissants and cakes, such a Butter Croissant, 1910 Coffee & Chocolate Croissant, Raspberry & Cinnamon Croissant, Almond Croissant, Pistachio Croissant, and Kaya Croissant.

Each comes smaller than the usual size, priced at $3.27 each.

As Bacha Coffee continues to make a name for itself, you may want to drop by the airport boutique next time you have a plane to catch at T3, just to have a look.
