Gumption by Coffee Alchemy

The Strand Arcade, 11/412-414 George St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

Editor's Review

Located in the Strand Arcade, Gumption by Coffee Alchemy sits in its quaint Victorian-style, 'Diagon Alley'-esque surroundings, sandwiched between boutique clothes and food shops. But for all of its old-timey stain-glass features out front, inside is a modern, efficiently run coffee shop producing the morning beverages for the myriad of city workers who've made a detour on their commute to get a cup of something worth drinking. 

Inside there is standing room only to wait as your coffee is made, however you are able to pull up a high stool to a 'science-class style' table just outside the shop if you wanted to sit down and set up your laptop or simply people watch. 

The choice of coffee available speaks volumes about the level of detail and thought that's gone into the roasting and preparation of the coffee beans. There is the house roast, but why not choose to try the Single Origin Estate of the week (in Espresso and Pour over), or ask about the different beans showcased in deli style dispensers behind the counter. A place oozing with quality and care which seems to resonate in each cup of coffee they produce whether you're a busy city worker or in the area for a bit of fancy shopping.
