Welcome to Alchemy.  

We are an independent coffee roastery based in London. We hand roast small batches of quality coffee, much of it imported by Direct Trade.

Being a small company allows us the privilege of choosing which farmers we most want to partner with, and building lasting relationships with them.

All through the process from farming to picking, sorting to milling, grading and exporting, roasting and cupping, brewing and serving, the word that constantly rises is “care”.

Our farmers, roasters and baristas care for the coffee from seed to cup to do the best we can to preserve the inherent flavour of the coffee without adulteration.

Here at our roastery in Wimbledon, our small but expert team hand-roast on an 85-year old reconditioned coffee roaster.  Without drowning you in science, we chose this machine to give us the greatest possible consistency, control and flexibility over our roasting process, so that each roast can be crafted to bring out the best in each bean.

We believe that what we do is a craft; a blend of art, skill, science and technology.

If you would like to hear more about us, the wonderful farmers we work with, and the communities they live and work in, take a look at our social media channels.  We would love to share our experiences with you.
