College Hill Cafe

The College Hill Café is owned and operated by Blue State Coffee, a local New England coffee company. Blue State Coffee roasts its coffee in small batches using the highest quality organic and fairly traded beans, sourced from growers that employ eco-friendly farming methods and adhere to fair labor practices. Blue State Coffee is truly involved from seed to cup: its coffee director travels to origin to meet with growers and handpicks the very best lots for its coffees.

Food selections include delicious, house-made baked goods, sandwiches, salads, snacks, egg sandwiches, and yogurt parfaits. Blue State Coffee’s chef and baker use locally sourced, natural ingredients. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free items are offered. Catering is also available: email Karen@bluestatecoffee.com

Blue State Coffee is committed to giving back to the local community and donates 2% of sales to local non-profit organizations. Customers nominate the charities that will be supported and vote on how the donations are allocated.
