Blue State Coffee by BU in Boston Has Closed

A Providence-based group of coffee shops that is known in part for its work with local nonprofits has closed its only remaining Boston location.

Based on a post from BU Today saying that the Blue State Coffee outlet on Commonwealth Avenue has been removed from the company's website, we reached out to the business who confirmed that the cafe has indeed shut down permanently. The note also indicated that its other locations in Providence, New Haven, and Hartford will remain in operation, while they said that "We're so thankful for our employees and the wonderful customers we met on Comm. Ave., and for their help in supporting the many local nonprofits we were able to work with throughout our time in Boston."

Blue State Coffee, which was founded in 2004, also had a store in Boston's Seaport District, but that location is no longer in business.

The address for the now-closed Blue State Coffee by Boston University was 957 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA, 02215. The website for the other locations can be found at
