Tomoca is a home of true Ethiopian coffee. It is well known for roasted coffee when a family member orders coffee from anoraks. It is also one of the oldest coffee shops in Addis. If you want to taste original coffee of Ethiopia, go to Tomoca. The locations are all convenient as Tomoca coffee has branch shops in most places... More

Cant stress how good this coffee was. Very authentic experience of an old style Ethiopian coffee house. They also sell their coffee to take home and it has kept well (have just had a cup)

Good option as a place to hang out and work or have a friendly chat. Interesting espresso - not too fruity, but not overly bitter. Reasonably priced given the setting.

Take a seat, order your coffee of choice and relax. On the way out dont forget to buy a few packs for your friends who will be happy to get it as a souvenir.
