This was the best coffee I've ever had in my life. It's strong and the milk they use is deliciously creamy. The coffee is around 15 birr for a Machiato, which is really cheap. They give you a tile which you need to give to...More

A small bag of whole bean, dark roast Tomoca coffee packaged in a canvas gift bag (also available at the store) makes an excellent gift for less than 150 birr ($6) total. Treat yourself to a cup while you are there.

Tomoca sells roasted whole beans at the original shop in town and at their shop in the Radisson Blu hotel. I don't think they sell green coffee beans, just 2 or 3 types of roasted beans.
