Great little coffee shop in the Nakumatt, TFA center. It's a regular stop whenever we're in town. Great service and yummy coffee. Even better when they are roasting when you're there. The aroma fills the place.

This chain of Columbian owned coffee houses has a spot in the same centre as Nakumatt Supermarket (as well as a small spot at Arusha Airport and in Stone Town, Zanzibar, if memory serves me well) and has become a regular pit-stop for us after we have shlepped around town on foot doing some shopping. They offer a range of... More

The place looks great! And smells excellent, with fresh coffee beans roasting in a corner of the café. The chairs outside are comfy and stylish and counter the fact the you're actually sitting in a shopping center parking lot. But the center piece of this establishment, the coffee, is really disappointing. Rather than having a quality espresso machine and a... More

Very nice being able to sit outside where other shops in centre will only have the possibility to sit inside.

Maybe 10 trips over the years and every single trip included multiple visits to Msumgi Coffees. I travel with a French Press and they were the ones that actually educated me as to the proper grind and why that particular grind. And then they would grind the most perfect coffee for my French press! Of course, I would stick some... More

The ambient, the coffee and the service make this place a must visit in Arusha. I spent two afternoons there enjoying a Dippo (2 x Exppresso) and a chocolate cake. Really good stuff!

I have had quite a few coffees at Msumbi Coffees over the last few months. Each time the coffee was great and the service attentive. The prices are reasonable and I am sure I will be going back many times.

We stopped into the Nakumatt for our friends to do some shopping, and saw this shop from across the parking lot and thought it sounded so much better than hanging out in a supermarket! It was wonderful. The coffee was excellent, the three of us all had different drinks and all were superb. There wasn't much for stuff to eat,... More
