Bourbon Coffee Restaurant Review

: Bourbon Coffee is a growing coffee group with stores in New York and Cambridge, Mass. that tailors its décor and coffee menu to showcase Rwanda. If that sounds surprising, it is really a gesture by the owners to introduce the special Arabica coffees produced in that African country. Management has taken great pains to set the stage for this brand: it has detailed the décor with Rwandan trinkets and curios. But it also keeps in mind that a coffee shop means relaxation, so comfortable chairs and sofas attract patrons who want to read, chat or connect on the WiFi.
