Blue State Coffee: Good Coffee and Good Deeds


Blue State Coffee is more than just a New England chain of coffee shops. It’s a philanthropic endeavor launched by a family with roots in the Northeast. In 2004, they were struck with inspiration to open a cafe that would not only play a role in the local economy, but also funnel money back out to the people who needed it most via nonprofit organizations. They also wanted the cafe to be as eco-friendly as possible and provide a community for both its patrons and employees.

Now 15 years later, Blue State Coffee has met all of those goals—including donating nearly a million dollars to nonprofits. Yet its team is still hard at work pouring high-quality coffee and offering up fresh, healthy food. Head to the Blue State Coffee on Seaport Boulevard—one of two in Boston—to grab a cup of java and a locally sourced pastry or a sandwich. When you do, a portion of the profits will go back out to City Year Boston, First Teacher, Pine Street Inn, and the Conservation Law Foundation, the nonprofit organizations that this specific cafe supports.
