Brew Barrington Coffee at Home

If you love grabbing your morning Barrington coffee from us in The Market, why not purchase a 12oz bag of fresh roasted beans to take home so you can brew for yourself over the weekend? Whether you want to make your own leisurely Sunday brunch-time cappuccino, or a big mug of our featured drip, we’ll grind the beans for you ourselves so you can take them home and enjoy the best coffee on the island all week long. Call 945-1814 so we can set some bags aside for you!

Heroes for Hannah

We were so very honored to host “Heroes for Hannah” in partnership with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation on October 9th. This event, which successfully raised over $200,000 towards the funding of childhood cancer research, is part of a much bigger campaign driven by volunteers in order promote awareness. Hannah Meeson is a six-year-old battling brain cancer but she didn’t let it stop her smiling away as she gave an inspirational speech before the shaving began. Watching our employees, alongside many other island residents, and Hannah’s own mother and sister take to the clippers was truly heartwarming. To see our family at Cricket Square join the larger family of this island to help fund this research makes us all feel a little closer to a cure.

Barrington Coffee

Whether you visit The Market every morning for you cup of fresh-brewed featured drip to-go, or purchase our ground Barrington roast to take home and make for yourself over the weekend, we take the coffee we serve you very seriously and consider it to be some of the best on island. Much of this is due to the product, which comes directly from Barrington Coffee Roasting Company in Massachusetts, which sources the finest and most exciting beans from around the world each season and roasts them with precision and delicacy. Once the coffee is delivered by hand to us, our trained Baristas use this exceptional product to make you each perfect cup. Each of our Market employees is specially trained in using our espresso machine, handling the beans, and creating the month’s signature drip, which at the moment is a chocolatey Kemgin with beautiful peach undertones. We believe the reason it tastes so good is an amazing product, yes, but also the care we take with handling each step of the process.
