Washington Avenue Coffee By Design

Dear Coffee By Design Friends:

Opening our doors at 43 Washington Avenue in January 2005 offered us a wonderful opportunity to add to the Coffee By Design family of neighborhood coffeehouses and increase the space we needed for our growing coffee roastery. Over the years we have come to know many of you and feel that you are part of the CBD family. There are many memories we will cherish.

It is bittersweet to share the news that after months of careful review, we have decided against renewing our coffeehouse lease at Washington Avenue. Last year, we sold the building to our friends Rob and Nancy from Duck Fat. Having been tenants, they had ties with the neighborhood and had dreams of what they wanted to do here. We look forward to seeing what they choose to do, which will surely add to this already wonderful neighborhood. In the meantime, Coffee By Design at Washington Avenue will continue as usual with the final day of business February 28, 2019.

We thank you for making us part of your routine and hope that you will continue to visit us at one of our other nearby locations. You will see some of the folks you have grown to know here working with us at our other locations: India, Diamond and Congress streets and in Freeport at LL Bean. We look forward to greeting you with a friendly smile and serving you a great cup of coffee and a whole lot more. You will always have a seat at the table, where everyone is welcome.
