Our History

Gregg Charbonneau and Barth Anderson founded Barrington Coffee Roasting Company in 1993. Having met in college, they quickly discovered their common love of everything coffee. Barth, an environmental scientist by education, was drawn to coffee at the age of 14 and he clearly hasn’t shaken it since. Gregg started roasting coffee during his college years for a local coffeehouse and continued while building a career in art restoration. This combination of art and science is the foundation of their success.

Devotion, total commitment, fanaticism: these are good words to describe the power-coffee duo. Their commitment at Barrington Coffee is hands-on. Decidedly not a giant corporate empire, on any given day Gregg and Barth can be seen unloading bags of green coffee, cupping the new crop of Ethiopian beans or roasting for the day’s production.

Over the years, Barrington Coffee has grown to include a select staff of coffee driven professionals. Together with Gregg and Barth, this team is responsible for preparing coffee each day at the Roastery in Lee, MA. A steady stream of coffee-centric conversation with customers and local devotees stopping by to pick up a quick pound of Barrington Gold Espresso Blend are all part of the daily culture at the Roastery.

Our Mission

Our passion is to discover the finest and most exciting coffees from around the world each season, roast them to perfection and deliver them fresh to our customers. We believe a truly great coffee should be roasted to highlight its inherent quality without imparting overwhelming roast. This is why you will notice such a difference in Barrington Coffee.

The unifying thread that ties our coffees together is the exceptional quality they offer in the cup. They hail from the finest coffee farms in the world and come to exist, first and foremost by virtue of the great effort and care that has been devoted to their production. We applaud the individuals that grow our coffees by purchasing the fruits of their labor and singing their praises on our website. We believe that directly supporting quality driven producers is the ideal manner in which to promote sound, responsible growing practices, economic sustainability, and ultimately the best quality coffee.
