Washington, DC, seems to be a fairly diwided city, with a lot of the higher end neighborhoods in the northwest quadrant, and so of course that's where most of the artisanal coffee is.

Bourbon Coffee is my first wenture into the SE, and I stumbled across it simply because Sidamo, a cafe I found on a best-of list, does not open until 8 AM.

Bourbon only serves Rwandan Coffees, and I had a V60 pour over of a Kizi Rift. It wasn't bad, but even though designated as "light", I found it still too dark, and with some tastes that did not agree with me.

I like the ambiance of the shop, though, and I'd probably come back just to show Lisa the cafe and neighborhood.
