BARRINGTON – Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters has acquired the business and assets of Cook Street Coffee in Barrington.

“We’re excited to join the Barrington community and for the growth prospects we see in Cook Street Coffee,” said Michael Shipley, partner with Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters. “We’ll keep the Cook Street Coffee name active because we like that it’s a reflection of the community.”

Conscious Cup has been managing Cook Street Coffee for more than two years. Concurrent with the purchase, Conscious Cup signed a three-year lease to continue operations at 100 Station St.

The acquisition was effective Dec. 1 from Cook Street Coffee LLC, represented by Steve, Holly and Kennon McClintock, owners of the retail and condominium complex at the intersection of Station and Cook Streets in Barrington’s downtown.
