The name "Bourbon Coffee" originates from the Bourbon Arabica variety of coffee which has grown wild in Rwanda for over a century. Rwanda's coffee farmers cultivate this exceptional varietal collectively, pooling their resources to nurture and harvest the beans. Their efforts bring to market a remarkably nuanced, singularly approachable coffee, redefining quality in a cup.
The quality you taste in every Bourbon cup provides you with an intimate insight into the coffee's journey. From the selective picking of the ripest cherries, to the submerged natural fermentation process, and the naturally sun dried beans, the quality shines through. Rwanda boasts five coffee-growing regions, each with unique soil and climate conditions, which yield five distinctively tantalizing coffees: Akagera, Kivu Lake, Kizi Rift, Muhazi and Virunga.
Be prepared to romance your cup!
A Kinyarwanda Poem From the Coffee Farmers of Rwanda
Uhanura iboatazi imvano imvaho yabyo ntamenya aho iva:
Abatazi kuyinywa bajya babeshya ngo ishyusha umutwe
Umutima ugatera kandi iyo mbuto y'ihoho abayizi bayita
Ihogoza rihonga agahinda!
