Living up to expectations! 

Coffee Alchemy

After receiving top spot for best coffee in Sydney on Time Out's list and Sydney 2012 Food Guide's list I was expecting big things from Coffee Alchemy. For a place that only sells coffee, surely it had to be great!? It was just as I expected - brilliant coffee!
Coffee Alchemy is located in a rundown building in Marrickville and is very simple. Inside there is a big counter and even bigger selection of coffee beans and blends behind the counter. Apart from that there are just church pews that line the walls and small coffee tables scattered around. There is also an array of awards plastered on the walls. The staff were very friendly engaging every customer in conversation. The cliental was half regulars (which the staff knew by name and order) and half people who had travelled far and wide to taste their renowned coffee! The only downside was they shut at 2pm on weekdays (I made it by 20 minutes). 

I had a skinny latte to have there and a skinny latte to go (the coffee was that good). The blend was smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of froth and perfectly roasted. I must have been the only person who ordered a coffee and didn't get a side of beans to take home with me! Oh well, there is always next time because I will be back!
