Alchemy describe their coffee as 'exceptional' and we couldn't agree more - it really is outstanding! They have cafes in Shoreditch and Ludgate and roast coffees for some of London's highest regarded speciality coffee bars. They were asked to make coffees for the artists backstage at Glastonbury in 2005 - which they've done at every Glastonbury since!

They say 'Transparency is incredibly important to us. Being a small, independent roastery allows us to form meaningful and long-lasting partnerships with farmers and producers, and also means we get some really delicious coffees that are exclusive to us in return. This really is a better deal for everyone, as in our direct trade partnerships we pay the farmer directly with no middle men, in their currency, straight into the farm’s bank account – meaning they don’t have to sacrifice a portion of their income to a broker.'
