While in Addis you got to visit Tomoca at least twice daily for your dose of Ethiopia coffee. You can also buy packed coffee or coffee beans at a fair price.

Good place for a quick cup - very nice coffee. Don't expect anything more than coffee, for that you need to be on the other side. It wakes you up for sure!! But good coffee and nice people.

Stopped by for a quick coffee with a friend. This is a no frills coffee bar with great variety of Ethiopian coffee. Great location on a busy street in the centre of town

I brought back Tomoca coffee from Ethiopia. I bought the one in coffee beans,They were very fresh and have nice smell. It taste really good. Ethiopia is where coffee started and spread to all over the world.

By far the best & strongest black coffe I've ever had. The authentic place having your coffe among the locals adds more pleasure to your experience. If you are a coffe lover, this is a MUST go ! You can buy your own coffe there as well of course.

A small coffee shop with no seating (I was in Tomoka place in Piazza). I ordered a macchiato (the Ethiopian macchiato is quite different from macchiato served across Europe) and it was one of the best cups of coffee I had.

Ethiopia is the land of coffee so who am I to argue lol We had a Tomoca coffee shop in the hotel so had to try a few and take some home. If you like the strong dark stuff go for it

If you're a coffee lover - this is not to be missed. Excellent coffee! Really authentic coffee shop and you can buy the coffee to bring home too.

Great coffee experience. However, I would have loved if they had more options, pastry and also comfortable seats to be able to read/work from there.
