Barrington Coffee Roasting Co.
|Roaster Location:||Lee, Massachusetts|
|Coffee Origin:||Aceh Province, northern Sumatra, Indonesia.|
|Review Date:||November 2009|
Blind Assessment: Fruit and aromatic wood in the aroma, complicated by a hint of cocoa. Bright yet balanced in the cup with a lightly syrupy body, a distinct flavor note suggesting fresh-cut fir, a hint of grapefruit and a musty note that reads convincingly as fresh earth. Long, dry, slightly tight finish.
Notes: Grown by members of the Gayoland Cooperative, this coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A light-roasted treatment of the classic Sumatra profile.
