A California-based coffee roaster and retailer that closed two of its Boston area locations last month has reopened a third that shut down during the same time period.

According to a source, Twitter, Peet's Coffee & Tea in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston is open once again as of August 10, nearly a month after three sources, including a poster on Twitter, reported that it had shuttered around July 12 or 13, with all three sending pictures of a sign out front that said "Closed by order of Licensing Board for the City of Boston." This happened on the final day for two other locations of Peet's--one in the North End and another in Newton Centre. In addition, another sign on July 15 went up in the window of the Charles Street shop, saying that "We're working on getting this misunderstanding resolved as quickly as possible with the city so we can pick back up as soon as possible."

 Other shops in Brookline, Cambridge, Chestnut Hill, Lexington, and Wellesley remain in operation.

The address for Peet's in Beacon Hill is 66 Charles Street, Boston, MA, 02114. The website for Peet's can be found at
