After closing three of its New Haven cafes last month, Blue State Coffee has announced that all of its remaining cafes are now permanently closed. All cafes were closed effective 5 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 17.
“Since our founding in 2004, we have prioritized our mission of creating a ripple effect of positive change across communities. We are grateful to the communities where our cafes are located, our wonderful customers and our amazing managers and baristas for helping fufill our mission,” read a statement that the business posted on Facebook on Thursday. “Blue State Coffee grew to have 9 cafes in 3 states over the last 18 years. We are so proud of this company, and as a family-owned business, we feel it is the right time to make this change. We will miss you.”
