Whether you need to pick up a quick cup of coffee on your way to work, or you want to sit down for a light lunch while you spend an hour catching up on emails, Bourbon Coffee is a popular choice near Residences on the Avenue. This Foggy Bottom coffee shop is bright, modern, and cheerful, with plenty of seating and tables for patrons who wish to settle in, as well as a streamlined ordering process for folks who need to grab their cup of joe and go. The menu includes all the tea, coffee, and espresso-based drinks that you’d expect, as well as fresh fruit smoothies and a big glass display case full of croissants, cheesy jalapeno scones, and other handheld eats.
You should also know that Bourbon Coffee was founded in Rwanda, and established its first shops there before expanding to the United States, so everything you purchase here helps support economic development in Africa, as the shop still buys all its coffee through direct trade with Rwandan coffee farmers.
