Moxie Java’s presence in Boise continues to dwindle – with an outlet on campus at Boise State going the way of so many others.

Boise State and food vendor Aramark are reshuffling some of the space inside the Student Union Building, which will make way for a new Starbucks outlet – while the Moxie will close, according to The Arbiter.

This will be the second Starbucks location on campus – the other is inside Albertsons Library.

Garden City-based Moxie Java used to be the dominant coffee player in Boise – but has been reduced to just a handful of locations, and is now behind Starbucks, Dutch Bros. and Human Bean in number of total locations.  Another local Moxie also recently closed.
