Our Mission

At Bedlam we believe in healthy living and access to one’s innate sense of health. That’s why we decided to put a juice/smoothie bar in a bookstore. The information and awareness you feel in your own body from the foods/drinks you ingest, is just as important as the information and awareness you glean from the pages of a good book. Body and mind are one. It’s the western world that has split them. So we wanna create a little revolution and help you put them back together again.

We support local farms, use organic and/or sustainably/ethically grown produce, and are also committed to using methods that reduce our waste. See our FAQS page for more information about these terms and the green methods we employ. The purity/healthfulness of the ingredients you put into your body matters. We believe in eating/drinking the rainbow!

French Press Coffee

We use Blue Fire Coffee Roasters, a local Massachusetts roaster, to supply our coffees and we serve it in 20 oz. French Presses. Blue Fire is Fair Trade Certified and their coffees are organic. For some of their dark roasts, such as the Brazil, their sourced coffee is part of the Rainforest Alliance, which assures that up to 95% of their coffees are organic. We’re proud to offer coffees with these ethically sourced characteristics, and that doesn’t even begin to talk about their amazing taste profiles. We offer:

Chai

Few things make us as giddy as a good cup of chai. Truly, finding a great cup of this lovely spiced concoction has been a personal lifelong quest. And I’m happy to say that we now carry the BEST kind of chai I’ve ever had – Chai-Wallah 100% organic chai made locally in Guilflord, VT. We mix their chai with organic soy milk, Russian Caravan tea from Upton Tea Imports, and organic cane sugar. And then we serve it with love.
