A coffee roaster from Philadelphia with one existing shop in the Boston area will add another location in the Seaport District. La Colombe has its sights set on a new shop at 29 Northern Ave., near the Moakley Courthouse, according to Boston Restaurant Talk.
The company is seeking approval from the City of Boston’s licensing board to operate seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., per an agenda for a July 12 hearing. La Colombe opened its Leather District location in April 2016 and has announced plans to pursue another location in Back Bay at 250 West Newton St., near the Prudential Center, as previously reported.
La Colombe roasts its own beans and is widely known for its canned draft lattes. There are La Colombe coffee shops in Philadelphia, Chicago, New York, and Washington, DC, plus one in Los Angeles. Each cafe emphasizes the craft of brewing and encourages a dialogue between customers and baristas, La Colombe co-founder JP Iberti previously told Eater. Boston’s 745 Atlantic Ave. location serves La Colombe’s usual lineup of brewed coffee beverages and food from Cafe Madeleine in the South End.
Eater has reached out for more details on the forthcoming Northern Avenue location and will provide updates when they are made available.
