Alkemisten came to be through the union of a dream, sweat and a love of living. In 2015, founder Kristian Hedborg and his sister Mikaela Hedborg built and opened Alkemisten on the island Hisingen in Gothenburg, Sweden. Coffee is our alchemy and our passion. It’s the core that drives us.

We are on a mission to serve people. We do what we do to bring happiness and meaning to other people, to create a strong community and make the world a better place.

On weekends we offer our special vegan “weekend lunch” and we always have our grilled pesto and mozzarella sandwich. If you want something sweet you should try our raw cheesecake or almond croissant. Breakfast from 07:00 on weekdays!

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

We believe that knowing the story behind your coffee, where it was grown, how it was processed, and who handled it along the way is a powerful link that needs to be known.

We work with speciality coffee roasted by our own company Ritu Coffee Roasters. Through judging and competing we have acquired renowned achievements on national and international level. In 2019, our coffee manager Anthony Nguyen won the Swedish Roasting Championship and we always strive to improve in the art of making coffee.

Our goal is to serve you a delicious and socially responsible cup that highlights the nuances inherent in each coffee. Light roasted and well-prepared coffee is what we like. From there we let
the coffee speak for itself. One cup at a time.

Brewing methods we use: filter, espresso and hand brewed (v60)
