Silverback Coffee of Rwanda

Named for the endangered gorilla native to Rwanda and Uganda, this excellent Echo Park café and roaster was founded by Jack Karuletwa, a displaced member of the Tutsi. Today, Karuletwa’s Silverback Coffee now supports small coffee farmers, several rebuilding-oriented nonprofits and wildlife conservation efforts in his home country. In addition to its noble mission, the café itself is large, airy and full of indoor seating—the perfect Eastside-ish spot for a well-made cup of specialty coffee. Silverback Coffee also features an extensive milk-based drink assortment, an array of sweeter, dessert-like drinks and a food menu of breakfast fare and pastries.
