Alchemist has launched a brand-new outlet in the heart of town at near Somerset at The Heeren. (Suddenly brings back my HMV and Marche memories.)

This is a move from its outlet at Design Orchard, so cafe goers don’t have to climb up those steps anymore.

The coffee joint that initially opened its doors in May 2016 to cater to the community around International Plaza, has now grown to encompass seven outlets throughout Singapore, including their latest addition at The Heeren.

My first encounter with Alchemist was at their humble “hole-in-the-wall” location in International Plaza.

Among the various Alchemist outlets, a few have become personal favorites of mine.

The flagship store situated within the charming and cozy Khong Guan Building evokes a sense of heritage>

There is also The Mill located in Jalan Kilang’s industrial area within a neo-gothic structure, features elegant chandeliers and sleek stainless steel countertops.

When it comes to pricing, an Espresso at Alchemist starts from $4. Prices are generally up $0.50.

Their menu also includes classics such as White ($6, $7), Mocha ($6.50, $7.50), and Chocolate ($6.50). Opting for oat or soy milk incurs an additional dollar charge.

Keep in mind that the filter menu at Alchemist undergoes periodic rotations, making it advisable to check the offerings in-store for the most up-to-date selection.

Two signature choices include the Dark Matter and Finca Los Altiplanos, each delivering a delightful experience for coffee enthusiasts.

For those who crave a bold and rich espresso, the Dark Matter is my usual-try. With its velvety texture and robust flavors, it leaves a lasting impression.

On the palate, one can expect to detect hints of dried dates, hazelnut, and dark chocolate.

I was recommended the Finca Los Altiplanos which showcases a smooth and fragrant character.

Its notes of crisp snow pear provide a refreshing element, while the moderate acidity and sweetness of golden kiwi add layers of complexity.

With a rotating selection of pastries, customers can indulge in an array of options.

From the classics like Butter Croissant, Almond Crossaint, and Pain Au Chocolate to more innovative creations like the Pistachio Raspberry Cruffin, there is a pastry to suit every preference.

As I was seeking a savory option, I had the Chicken Sausage Croissant.

This treat combines the flaky goodness of a croissant with savoury chicken sausage, offering a creamy choice for those craving something more flavoursome.
