Coffee Review - Sheeva by Barrington Coffee Roasting
Roast: Light Review Date: June 2013
Origin: Oromia and Yirgacheffe growing regions, Ethiopia. Price: $23.45/16 ounces

Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, lyric, complex. Roasted cacao nib, honey, guava, green apple, brisk lavender in aroma and cup. Lively, juicy acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor carries with authority into a bright, honey-toned finish.

Notes: This coffee, which combines fine wet-processed Ethiopias from two of Ethiopia’s most distinguished growing regions, is the first in Barrington’s Ceres Project aimed at blending super premium coffees to create signature profiles. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit or call 800-528-0998 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those likely to enjoy a fine and original variation on the great Ethiopian cup: brightly juicy, deeply complex.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
