A coffee shop that once had four locations around Boston has closed its last remaining cafe. Boston Common Coffee Co. (10 High St., Boston) has shut down in the Financial District, seven months after closing another location in Boston’s West End. (That location was taken over by a different coffee shop, Bourbon Coffee.) While there’s no longer a physical presence in the city, Boston Common Coffee will maintain an online business for its roasting operation.

The first Boston Common Coffee cafe opened in 2004 in Boston’s North End neighborhood. It eventually added the three other cafes in Downtown Crossing, the West End, and the Financial District. The business roasted its own beans and was known for its special doughnut days.

“Thanks to all of our customers for the continued support,” the company posted on Facebook. “The good news is that we are still operating a thriving business online, in some of your favorite restaurants and even in [your office] if you like.”

Ziggy’s Coffee Bar, the Merchant, and the Precinct are among local venues stocking Boston Common Coffee beans.
