Bourbon Coffee

Dear Bourbon Coffee community & Pound the Hill friends,

We’re looking forward to owning and operating Pound the Hill starting today, Monday, June 22. A staple of the D.C. coffee world, Pound the Hill has served quality cups for four years. While we’re going to transition the brand, name, and menu over the next few months, we’ll continue the tradition of serving the neighborhood quality direct trade coffee.

We’ll be bringing new coffee varieties, grown with care by the people of Rwanda, to Capitol Hill. Stop by and check out the store as it changes. Feel free to sip and relax with us, and let us know what you’re looking for. Thank you to Pound the Hill for working with us, and thanks to everyone in the DMV for letting us share a tradition of direct trade coffee from Rwanda.


Thank you,
The Bourbon Coffee team

Bourbon Coffee is an international brand of specialty coffee, and the first retail brand to originate from Africa. Our stores are built around the philosophy of producing coffee in a thoughtful, cooperative way – we promote cultural unity, sustainable practices, and the spirit of Rwanda, a country with a standout culture of discipline and equality, as well as tremendous economic development over the last 20 years. We currently have a location in Foggy Bottom (at 22nd and L), a location in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and five locations in Kigali, the capital of Rwanda.
