{New Sponsor} – Coffee Alchemy

March 2, 2012 by flyingdrunkenmonkey


I am attending The Digital Parents Conference in Melbourne in March, 2012.

A schedule packed with panel sessions, workshops, keynote speakers, networking opportunities and a trade expo, this conference is expected to be the biggest social media event catering to the mum, parent and personal blogging communities of Australia.

And….. I have a sponsor!!!

**** Coffee Alchemy! ****

Almost every day Lily and I walk around our block and go to Coffee Alchemy to pick up a Skim Mocha and a Babycino Without Chocolate (unless I feel like a long black). We’ve been going almost every day since only a few weeks after Lily was born and have watched as the shop front has grown from a little area to a big room that is often packed with people.

So who are Coffee Alchemy? In their words:

Coffee Alchemy started many many moons ago growing up with grandma’s coffee trees, helping her pick, process and roast… the obsession rekindled in later years by a domestic espresso machine, a grinder and the insatiable desire for fresh coffee. A small commercial roaster followed the growing list of acquisitions not to mention the growing hill of beans.

Soon a little café tucked away in a quaint suburb was opened as an outlet for our obsession. But the madness continues to grow, along with the roaster, the coffee machine, the espresso bar {Flint and Steel}, the Australian Barista Champion title, the NSW Championship titles, the Australian Cupping Champion title, the Golden Bean Gold medal for Filter Coffee (along with more Golden Bean medals – silvers and bronzes over a few years), , the Sydney Royal Fine Food 2008 bronze medals, the Sydney Royal Fine Food 2009 silver and bronze medal (both in the espresso category) and bronze (plunger category) and that mountain of green beans…

The team of Hazel, Claire, Dan and Jin (plus the new guys, I’m so sorry I don’t know your names yet!) are fantastic and are always willing to have a chat, to say hello to Lily or answer any questions I may have about the coffee.

And speaking of the coffee…. AMAZING! Seriously, best coffee I have ever had and I’m lucky enough to have it daily! But don’t take my word for it, the Sydney Morning Herald named them as the Best Coffee of 2011!

They have an online store where you can buy any of their blends either as whole beans or ground for drip filters, vacuum brewers, plungers, stove tops or espressos. If you can’t make it in to the store in Marrickville to try their wonderful espressos than definitely order some beans!

I even ordered some beans to take away with us while camping, using our plunger and it made camping so much more bearable. We’ve given bags of beans to both my mother and mother-in-law as presents and Mr Monkey has even replaced his work’s beans with Coffee Alchemy beans for a special event.

I’m so proud to representing Coffee Alchemy at the Digital Parents Conference and I implore you to either check out their store front in Marrickville or order some beans from their online store.

    Love their coffee, thinking of convincing my workplace to stock it for their new machine. It didn’t even occur to me to ask for a sponsor, scraped in the money for DPCON12, frequent flyer points for the airfare and friend in Elsternwick putting me up for 3 nights. Would love to stay at The Sebel though, but how could I ask a sponsor when I have such a small following?

      I scraped the money together too and am flying down the morning of the conference and back the next day. I have a very small following too!
      It helps that I have a really good relationship with Hazel and the guys (it helps to go there almost every day for 2 years!) so it wasn’t such some random person asking for sponsorship.
      The thing to do would be to approach smaller businesses for a smaller amount of sponsorship – emphasise how much exposure they will be getting; 149 other bloggers at the event, plus PR and not to mention all of the people that can’t attend and will be reading all of the posts and tweets.
