Coffee lovers should head to Bourbon if you want to taste some authentic Rwandan coffee. The coffee shop sources it's beans ethically from farmers and five different regions in the country.

Besides the coffee, you can also buy pastries, sandwiches and light meals. They also sell their coffee (ground or beans), and it makes a great gift for people back home or yourself.

Rwanda is world-famed for its coffee beans, producing some of the world’s finest. In rural regions, it can be difficult to get hold of Rwandan coffee beans, as most are labelled for export. In the city centre, Bourbon coffee shop in Union Trading Centre is the best spot for excellent cappuccinos and blends. It’s an international chain where smart young professionals gather over lunch break. Dressed immaculately and often conversing at ease in several languages, this is a hub of the emerging educated classes. Poverty is still widespread in Rwanda and affects a majority, but here, the capital also shows signs of a burgeoning middle and upper class. Undeniably my favourite cup of coffee in the country, the types originate from plantations across Rwanda, such as Lake Kivu and Nyungwe, and can be bought as beans or ground, to take home. Meals are served in hearty portions and the wifi connectivity is excellent, making it a great spot to sit and people-watch on holiday or work over lunch.
