Barrington: secret to fine Indian coffee

Advertisement

Barrington Coffee Roasting Co. of Lee has been working directly with coffee farms in India for almost 20 years. Indian coffees, which win awards in Europe, are a rare find in this country. “They still do largely remain our little secret,” says Barrington’s cofounder Barth Anderson, who describes the coffees as “smooth and heavy bodied.” Kalledevarapura ($15.45- $17 for a ¾-pound bag) is available throughout the summer as flash-brewed ice coffee at Barrington Coffee’s Fort Point location. It also makes guest appearances, along with the limited edition Cauvery Peaberry, at various cafes around town. So now you’re in on the secret. Available at Barrington Coffee Roasting Co., 346 Congress St., Boston, 857-277-1914; Area Four, 500 Technology Square, Cambridge, 617-758-4444; Cafe Fixe, 1642 Beacon St., Brookline, 617-879-2500; or go to www.barringtoncoffee.com.
