As a coffee enthusiast, I am willing to travel for an impressive cup, and often plan my days around the best the city has to offer. Coffee Alchemy in Marrickville is justifiably praised for its commitment to outstanding coffee being consistently rated as one of Sydney’s best. In recent years, the highly focused cafe—also the site of their roasting operation—has undergone a subtle renovation. Smart wooden tables and stools enable you to savour your brew in comfort, before in all likelihood, ordering a second. If you really enjoy a cup of the black nectar, Coffee Alchemy is a must. Alternatively, you can visit their their buzzing Strand Arcade cafe, Gumption.
