Coffee Nerd Empire Blue Bottle Acquires Online Bean Seller Tonx

Two months after taking on nearly $26 million in new investment, Oakland-based artisan coffee retailer Blue Bottle has bought Tonx, a Los Angeles-based e-commerce company that sells high-end roasted coffee beans through a subscription program.
