In spite of its unprepossessing exterior, it's amazing the number of coffee cogniscenti that flock to this little coffee haven in the light-industrial precinct of Marrickville on a Saturday morning. The unassuming brick exterior hides an amazing little corner box comprising one of Sydney’s best boutique coffee gems. Coffee Alchemy doesn't offer food at all – they only do coffee – a blend, at least 3 single estate espressos each day, 4 or more single estate filter coffees and later in the week cold drip coffee and shakeratos [sparkling cold coffee]. This variety is founded on a bedrock of deep coffee knowledge – Hazel de los Reyes was Australian Barista Champion in 2005 and she has passed her passion and enthusiasm on to her team and they are constantly pushing and trying new things, and for those less knowledgeable, they are always happy to share.
The best coffee I've ever had, first time, every time. The name lives up to it's reputation. 100 out of 10.
Awesome, memorable coffee with a taste I want to go back for! The new shop fit-out looks good too!!!
This place is all about the coffee. No food, and only about 5% of this coffee roasting warehouse is a shopfront for the public (although they'll let you check out their roasting business if you ask nicely). All coffees are a flat rate of $3; so go ahead, order that double-ristretto. This isn't the place to bring a romantic date; this is the place to bring a coffee-loving friend and enjoy 3 different single-origins in one sitting.
