At Bourbon, the core of our mission is in our coffee. Our name, “Bourbon Coffee,” originates from the Bourbon varietal of Arabica coffee beans, which has grown wild in Rwanda for over a century. Bourbon beans are known for their deep, buttery chocolate flavors, as well as their sweetness and very light fruit overtones. They yield well-balanced coffees and are less common than other types of coffee beans as Bourbon plants generally carry fewer coffee cherries per plant than other varieties.
Using sustainable, eco-friendly farming techniques, Rwanda’s coffee farmers cultivate this exceptional varietal collectively, pooling their resources to nurture and harvest the beans. All of our locations serve exclusively Direct Trade coffee from Rwanda’s five distinct growing regions.
Differing from the typical flavor profiles of African coffees, Rwandan coffee offers complex and unusual tastes that are unique to their regional origins. We highly recommend trying each of our exceptional coffees to find your perfect cup!
