If you’re looking for a caffeine hit that’s a little more weird and wonderful than your standard flat white, look no further than the oh-so-trendy Alchemista.
You can’t help but notice Alchemista as you head down St Gregorys Alley, thanks to the striking frontage and a peek of the steampunk-style drip machine that sits in the centre of the coffee shop.
Of course, they offer the usuals: your latte, mocha, or americano. Where they shine, however, is in their specialty drinks, with careful use of syrups, cream, and chocolate to create something unique. Alongside the hot coffees, Alchemista also does one of the very best iced coffees in the city, made from 8-hour slow-dripped coffee. For a little extra something, there’s even a coffee-based cocktail menu that’s bound to knock your socks off.
The coffee shop also offers limited-run coffees, sweet treats and sandwiches.
