It can be tricky to find Blue State Coffee — it’s tucked into the bottom floor of an office building on a narrow street near the Waterfront — but regulars say it’s worth the effort. This New England chain offers top-notch fair trade coffee drinks as well as a seasonal menu of healthy eats like quinoa salad and local yogurt.
But what really sets Blue State apart is its commitment to the community. Every year, the company donates two percent of its sales to local non-profit groups. Customers can vote for local organizations by dropping a wooden nickel in a box, plus the shop pays its baristas a fair wage. It doesn’t stop there, though. Blue State sources its beans ethically and builds relationships across the supply chain, and it also uses sustainable practices to minimize its impact on the planet.
This location is on the smaller side and has limited seating. So, expect to grab your coffee and food to go, and feel great about doing so.
