Everything's coming up Blue Bottle as — hot off the publication of their book on coffee — the coffee house raised $20 million in investments. (See the SEC filing.) $20 million will buy a hell of a lot of cups of coffee, so what are they using the money for? Expansion, possibly. Blue Bottle currently has locations in San Francisco and New York, but with the upcoming planned expansion of similar coffee brands like Stumptown, further expansion for Blue Bottle is definitely a possibility. TechCrunch also speculates there could be a retail expansion, either online or in grocery stores. Either way, expect more Blue Bottle on the horizon.
