Bourbon coffee is an heirloom variety of Coffee Arabica, which Rwanda is known for because of the climate. Starbucks Rwanda Blue Bourbon coffee offers a highly acidic, black cherry and butter melt blend with notes of spiced nut, and certainly the flavor of this bean isn’t the only thing worth raving about. Starbucks aided in establishing more coffee farms in Rwanda as a social mission to rebuild the country whose economy was shaken by internal violence. The fair-trade coffee movement and attempt to restructure the economy of the country has led to its high popularity of Rwandan beans on the global coffee market. The coffee cooperatives of Rwanda rely on this Black Apron Exclusive bean as one of their primary crops.
