Alchemy Coffee is the sister company to Ristretto, the UK's premiere coffee events specialists. Ristretto was set up by Joe O'Hara in 2004 (initially as the Daily Grind Trading Company), and quickly became known as a niche high-end event company dealing with coffee, applying the same levels of obsession currently found in some of London's best cafes to the event environment. Having tighter controls on the coffee used was the next challenge to simply preparing and serving coffee to the quality level we wanted, so the roastery was started under the banner of Alchemy Coffee in 2008.
Our first permanent cafe opened in April 2013 at Ludgate Broadway in London near St Paul's Cathedral, and our second site opened in April 2014 at the London HQ of 'your favourite social network' (sorry, we're not supposed to say who that is, but we think you can work it out...), to supply staff on-site.
We now supply some of the best cafes in London, the UK and throughout Europe; these include: Lantana, Tuck Shop, Lizzy's on the Green, Marwood, Urban Angel, Fekete, Sip & Slurp, and Lanark.
