During my time at Berklee College of Music, I was able to get into a class called The Berklee Popular Music Institute and the class entailed of sending artists to major music festivals. My team & I were able to go with the band AJNA.

Roomie Date @ Barrington Coffee Shop ♡

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

My roommates and  I decided to go on a roomie date to this cute coffee shop called Barrington Coffee Roasting Company. I pass by this coffee shop everyday on my way to school and have always been drawn to the organic look this sign gives off.

So I decided to do a little research! Barrington Coffee not only has a coffee shop but they deliver coffee as well. They really emphasize on having a close relationship with the farmers who produce their coffee, because the farmers play a big  part on creating the quality of good coffee. Barrington makes sure that the coffee that you order is delivered the day of delivery.

So don’t you worry, if you don’t live in Boston you can still try their coffee 🙂

Here is a link to the coffee you can order-http://www.barringtoncoffee.com/product-category/all-coffees/farm-direct/

They sell coffee from all over the world from Kenya to Colombia and India to many more (!!!)

I ordered their cappuccino which was beautifully presented as you can see. I am usually very picky about cappuccino…but this cappuccino had the right amount of coffee and milk combined. The coffee was not bitter at all which was very nice because I don’t like adding sugar to my coffee. I loved it and it was just what I needed.

It was nice to just take some time off and spend some quality time with my roommates. We shared a few laughs, and conversations over our tasty drinks. As you can see we all had different drinks, we are all diverse but get along so well.

I love my roomies and I am so very thankful for them 🙂

Song Of The Week-

Get Away (Prod. by Jahaan Sweet)- Kehlani

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 9.34.11 AM

19-year-old Kehlani has a voice beyond her years and places a fresh twist on her R&B influenced vocal style.  The artist couples current electronic instrumentation with classic, a powerhouse vocal performance in her song “Get Away” that narrates a classic “the one that got away” love story.

 

My favorite thing about this particular song is that it has a climax, at the hook, while remaining dynamic overall.  The intro definitely sets the mood of the song: sultry and soulful but also upbeat and driving.  Her mature sound complemented by the heavy percussive interludes makes for an eclectic mixture of contemporary and classic sound, which adds even more appeal to this catchy tune!


I love Kehlani’s strong vocals and how they play off of the fluidity of the track; the dialogue between her voice and the syncopated electronic beats weaves the whole thing together perfectly.  “Get Away” is definitely one of my most played songs at the moment… Happy Listening! xx
