Bourbon Coffee


12873628_10154051447308011_848338628_oBourbon Coffee has multiple locations in DC, including at 2101 L St NW (Downtown), 4200 Wisconsin Ave NW (Tenleytown) and 621 Pennsylvania Ave SE (Capitol Hill). The pictures in this review are from the Tenleytown location, but I have also been to their Downtown location. Bourbon Coffee also has a location in Cambridge, MA, but actually started in Rwanda. They serve Rwandan single-origin coffees directly from Rwandan farmers and cooperatives. The Tenleytown location is inside 12874085_10154051447283011_1871285890_oa soulless, concrete building, but the interior is warm and inviting, decorated with Rwandan crafts. It was surprisingly easy to get a seat there on the weekends. The WiFi is good and the coffee is excellent. The Downtown location tends to be crowded, but I seriously appreciate a coffee shop with personality downtown, which is a rare find in a sea of Starbucks and wannabe Starbucks like the very disappointing Greenberry’s Coffee & Tea.
