Red Barn Coffee
Red Barn Coffee Roasters is a family owned and operated specialty coffee roaster, retailer and wholesaler. Mark and Lisa Verrochi were pioneers in the specialty coffee industry in the Northeast after observing the Seattle coffee boom while Mark was stationed out west for the Navy. Their first roasting facility was in an authentic New England style barn on their rural property in Hopkinton, MA.
Red Barn Coffee offers high quality single origin varietals from around the globe, cold brewed iced coffee, a full line of Organic, Fair Trade, Direct Trade, and naturally flavored coffees. New in 2016, all Red Barn Cafes now offer Nitro Cold Brew - a traditional cold brew iced coffee, nitrogen-infused and served from a tap.
They now conduct their roasting operations in warehouse space in Upton, MA. Red Barn supports over 100 wholesale partners throughout New England, and operates 5 company-owned cafes--two of which serve lunch and offer a full catering service. Introduced in 2013, a growing licensing program supports local entrepreneurs who wish to open up a Red Barn cafe of their own, leveraging a brand trusted for quality.
Coffee production in Colombia has a reputation as producing mild, well balanced coffee beans.
Colombia's average annual coffee production of 11.5 million bags is the third total highest in the world, after Brazil and Vietnam; though highest in terms of the arabica bean. The beans are exported to United States, Germany, France, Japan, and Italy. Most coffee is grown in the Colombian coffee growing axis region. In 2007, the European Union granted Colombian coffee a protected designation of origin status. In 2011 UNESCO declared the “Coffee Cultural Landscape” of Colombia, a World Heritage site.
