There are few really good coffee spots on Hisingen but Alkemisten is one of them. The café is situated in the up and coming Kvillebäcken. Serving their own coffee beans (roasted by Sandby Kafferosteri), Alkemisten brew your coffee as regular black filter, on machine and v60, or espresso based.
The seatings are quite few (and we pretty much captured the whole café in the picture above). We were there last Sunday on their opening day, and even though its newly opened, it felt as if the baristas had been working there for years. The interior is industrial with a thick concrete worktop on the bar desk, vintage Luxo lamps and wooden cable reels as tables.
Unfortunately, they didn’t serve pour over that first Sunday, but they promised it was on its way (and we saw pictures of it on Facebook a few days later). Instead of our standard pour over, we had an excellent Americano on their Neidan coffee and we also got to try their Waidan as espressos. In addition to pour over and espresso, we also saw a siphon on a shelf!
Except for coffee Alkemisten also have locally produced juices and organic food and pastries.
The name Alkemisten is translated to The Alchemist, and they also sell the book by Paulo Coelho.
