Locally Owned And Operated


Alchemy Coffee first opened in late March 2013 with a 400 square foot shop in Lawrence, Kansas specializing in pour overs (a manual pour technique for brewing fresh ground beans).  Soon after opening, Alchemy introduced its Cold Brew and Nitro Coffee which led to bottling and distribution.  Today, Alchemy sells its nationally ranked Cold Brew in 8oz Ready-to-Drink Bottles and 32oz Concentrate Growlers in over 90 locations in Kansas, Missouri, and Colorado - and continues to grow!  

In June 2014, Alchemy added The Bake House to provide made-from-scratch sweet breads, cakes, desserts, jams, and select meals like their Southern Biscuit Egg Sandwiches.  The bakery's passion and pursuit of perfecting familiar foods and giving them a gourmet twist has led it to grow and thrive.  The Bake House now caters weddings, private events, & special orders, as well as the ever changing menu options at the shops.  

In November 2018, Alchemy extended its warehouse production to include a more substantial roasting program. The roastery now supplies both Alchemy cafes with specialty coffee from around the world. The roasting program also extends beyond Alchemy cafes with fresh roasted coffee available in our web store and for wholesale across the country.

Alchemy is family owned and passionately spearheaded by owners Benjamin Farmer & Joni Alexander-Farmer.
