New Barrington Coffee Bitters!

Coffee_Bitters BMD_SILOBerkshire Mountain Distillers (BMD) has teamed up with Barrington Coffee Roasting Company to create a signature aromatic coffee bitters from the heart of the Berkshires. BMD Coffee Bitters combine Barrington Coffee’s Sumatra Aceh and a proprietary selection of dark botanicals that form a rich marriage between sweet, savory and dry cocktail flavors.

This summer, we have created a lineup of cocktails, mocktails, and beer drink recipes using BMD Coffee Bitters designed to refresh and enhance your summer drink menu.

Check out some of our recipes below…

BCRC Shandy (mocktail)

Maine Root Ginger Brew
Seltzer water
6 dashes BMD Coffee Bitters
Lime wedge

Dash bitters into a Collins glass, fill glass with ice, fill glass half way with ginger brew and top up with seltzer, garnish with lime wedge and serve.

Sanni Cola Old Fashioned (cocktail)

Two sugar cubes
Maine Root Mexicane Cola
10 dashes BMD Coffee Bitters
2 ounces BMD Berkshire Bourbon
Orange slice
Luxardo cherries

Soak sugar cubes in 10 dashes of bitters and 1/4 ounce of Maine Root Cola. Mash until a paste is formed. Add orange slice, taking care to press just the flesh (not the rind). Add cherries and press gently. Add bourbon and ice and BOX (pour back and forth from one glass to another). Serve in a rocks glass with a cherry and/or an additional dash of cola.

Drew’s Amaro Root Cooler (cocktail)

1 1/2 ounce Averna Amaro
Juice of 1/2 lime
Maine Root Root Beer

Boston’s Best Coffee Shop 2015!

Best of BostonOnce upon a time, simply saying “venti” was enough to make one feel oh-so-informed on coffee. Now, like wine aficionados, java junkies appreciate true complexity—the infinite symphonies of flavor notes, the nuanced impact of a bean’s terroir. This Berkshires-based roaster gets everything very right, Read more

Keremara AA Receives 95 Points!

CR_2015_95_300dpi

We received a 95 point score for our Keremara AA in April of 2015 from Coffee Review!

Blind Assessment:

Softly pungent, lushly exhilarating. Narcissus-like flowers, dark chocolate, sweet lime, myrrh in aroma and cup. Quietly though complexly bright acidity; buoyant, syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor carries deep into a sweet finish.

Notes:

Keremara Jungle Estate is a family-run farming collective established in 1974 and currently managed by John Kimondo. AA is the highest grade of Kenya coffee based on bean size and freedom from physical defects. This coffee was produced entirely from trees of the much-admired SL28 variety of Arabica. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast. Visit www.barringtoncoffee.com or call 800-528-0998 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A striking but very accessible coffee. The combination of flowers, chocolate, sweet citrus and a pungent, incense-like note is unusual, and supported by a structure both balanced and seductive.

Tchembe Receives 94 Points!

CR_2015_94_300dpi

We received a 94 point score for our Ethiopian Tchembe in April of 2015 from Coffee Review!

Blind Assessment:

Juicy, velvety, complete. Crisp roasted cacao nib, ripe citrus and strawberry, honeysuckle, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Gently vibrant, perfectly balanced acidity; plush mouthfeel. Sweet, flavor-saturated finish.

Notes:

This is a very refined version of a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. This coffee was selected and prepared under the supervision of Ninety Plus, a distinguished boutique producer and importer of innovative small-lot coffees from Ethiopia and Panama. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.

Who Should Drink It: The sweetly bright, buttery juiciness of certain tropical fruits, balanced by refined cacao and aromatic wood notes. Distinctive and superb.
