Ethiopian Coffee Chain Tomoca Coffee officially opened the doors to its first Kenyan shop last Friday at an event held at the Two Rivers Mall, Nairobi.
Tomoca Coffee Kenya Managing Director Amir Yusuf said the company has been attracted to Kenya by the country’s young and dynamic population.
“Kenya has a very young and dynamic population with good purchasing power, which demands high-quality products and services that are on par with international standards. The retail industry is also supported by low overhead fees, mainly through low rental fees and attractive incentives by property landlords,” Mr Yusuf said in a statement on Tuesday.
Tomoca is renowned for its unique coffee and prides itself on the art of marrying Ethiopian Coffee with the Italian technique. Some of their drinks include the Macchiato, Sprice and Cravato Coffee.
The coffee chain also plans to create beverage blends with Kenyan, Rwandese, and Ethiopian coffee.
Tomoca is a coffee roasting company established in 1953, in Addis Ababa – Ethiopia.
The family-owned business became the first coffee roasting company in Ethiopia to provide roasted and ground coffee to the local and international markets.
The acronym TO.MO.CA is derived from the Italian Torrefazione Moderna café, which means modern coffee roasting.
The company is a member of the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) and exports its coffee to Sweden, Germany, USA, China, Japan, and other countries across the globe.
