Obviously the coffee is amazing! The design and presentation of the shop is very good too. There should be more coffee shops in Addis that are styled like this..

Tomoca coffee is the one of the best coffee in Addis Ababa. A cup of Tomoca coffee is enough for the whole day.

Local prices. Great as a present for friends and family. You can get grounded or coffee beans for the same price.

A bit of an institution with two (?) branches. We went to the old one near the piazza and had great coffee and stocked up on bags of ground coffee as gifts for back home. Nothing fancy and more like an old fashioned Italian coffee bar.

Whenever you go inside there from the look and smell of coffee you feel like there's an increase in the level of caffeine in your blood 😄 even before you drink anything

I was brought here by a tour guide who said that when you are in Ethiopia you have to go to a coffee bar and this is the best. He was right

While I loved the coffee there, I loved the fact that I could bring some home with me even more. Great coffee in a nice setting.

Probably the best coffee I've had ever! Strong and pungent, yet the flavours are infused together to bring the best coffee experience for you. I am excited to be back to try it again next week!

There are several branches in Addis but the first and original one is close to Addis. While you are parking the car you already small the delicious coffee. My favorite is Macciato. The decor has never changed in more than 50 years. Please keep it. It is a jewel of nostalgia. They seel coffee too and beautiful potcards to end... More

If you are in Addis be sure to pay a visit to this establishment. I was there around lunch time on a Saturday. There were about 10-20 patrons.The place is historic with a sense of being long-established and is very relaxed and friendly. You can buy coffee (beans or ground) at a counter and also order coffee at the bar.... More
