about us

barismo is a local coffee roaster that has dedicated years to sourcing the freshest quality coffee. We work tirelessly to foster transparent and sustainable direct trade relationships with the top growers, exporters, and importers in the world.

In 2006, a group of baristas with a shared interest in tasting and cupping coffees began writing down their thoughts online. This blog was the seedling that would become barismo. After two years, we pulled together our resources and invested in roasting equipment to put our ideas to the test. The "lab" in East Arlington was born in the fall of 2008. As a local coffee roaster, barismo went on to healthy organic growth, having representation at some of the most well respected coffeebars in the area.

In April 2012, barismo opened dwelltime coffeebar & bakeshop in mid-Cambridge, raising the bar for quality and presentation of coffee in the Boston area. Growth continued on the roasting side as well with the move of the roastery to the heart of Union Square, Somerville in 2014. This move has allowed barismo to build stronger ties to the local community, providing more access to education & events geared towards strengthening the loop of direct trade: from small farms to a local roaster, onto local cafes and to you. We believe the future of excellent coffee depends on authentic sustainability at every step of the way.
