Our Story

Tomoca Culture

Ethiopia has a number of traditions that are still being practiced and which have an enormous contribution to the strength and unity of the community. One of the long held and practiced culture is drinking coffee together with friends and neighbours, increasing the bond among each other. This togetherness during coffee culture is used as a way of showing respect and love to one another.

Here in Tomoca, we share and converse with friends around coffee, showing love and respect in all our outlets as this tradition has been kept for years. We are keen towards having an Ethiopian taste alongside all its traditional values.


My name is Gosaye zenebe. Tomoca has been a home for the past 8 years. I usually begin my day with a cup of Tomoca. Having been here since 1953, not only they know coffee more than anyone else, they make it the best way it could possibly be made. It's not just the coffee, it has a unique vibe that you can find no place else. Little did I know, I used to think Tomoca was overrated before I firsthand witnessed that it's nothing but extraordinary. I was introduced to this place by a friend and I've been doing the same for others since then.

My name is Abdi Dula. I have been coming to Tomoca for about 10 years now. I came for the first time, tried the coffee and never left. I like the fact that they make the coffee exactly how I want it and they never disappoint. The ambiance is also nice. I'm the kinda person who enjoys solitude. Even though Tomoca is a place with a large crowd, it still manages to give room for people like me. It certainly serves the best coffee and accommodates diversity.
