Hola! As odd as it may sound, Chufala is simply a wordplay on Spanish and Singlish - Chufa + La.
Chufala is founded by three friends who have come together to spread the goodness of Horchata de Chufa (traditional Spanish beverage known globally as tigernut milk) and the superfood ingredient that made it.
We have a penchant for trying out the good and the new - and to share it with others. We hope that you will start this delicious and healthy journey with us (without the hassle of traveling to Spain!)
The Starting Point
It all started from one hot summer in Barcelona. We were in search of some icy treats to cool us down and we chanced upon this gem of a drink called Horchata de Chufa. It was served ice-cold and a perfect summer drink to beat the heat.
We were intrigued by its taste, a taste so unique, but one to remember. Back home in Singapore, we craved for this new found love, but it was just impossible finding one. It is a pity that fresh Horchata hardly ventured out of Spain to other parts of the world. In our search for Horchata, we discovered that it is not just a tasty beverage, but a healthy one too! In fact, it is jammed packed with nutrients, all thanks to its main ingredient - the mighty Chufa :)
The more we unravel the benefits of Horchata, the more we felt that we were missing out big time. And so we were inspired to share this prized gem with everyone back home – freshly made!
And with that Chufala was born.
