Joe Bean Coffee Roasters to close University Ave. coffee bar


One of the better known local coffee bars is closing. 

Joe Bean Coffee Roasters posted a message on its Facebook page on Monday that it will close its coffee bar on University Avenue in Rochester, to focus on the roasting side of the business, which the owners say is steadily growing.

The owners say that after opening the coffee bar seven years ago, they will be moving the roastery this fall to a new location that will have a small espresso bar along with a bean retail area.

The owners say that August 25th will be the last full day open for the coffee bar on University Avenue. After that, it will be open limited hours as they transition the business.
