Tomoca Coffee, one of the leading coffee brands in Ethiopia is set to open its first shop in Kenya as the company builds on its ambition to expand to the rest of Africa.
In a press dispatch shared on Wednesday, Tomoca confirmed that the first coffee shop in Kenya will be situated at The Two Rivers Mall, Nairobi.
“This is the first venture for Tomoca within Africa. We chose Kenya as our first gateway for Africa-based expansion due to many benefits Kenya provides to the private sector in terms of investment incentive and other critical aspects that are needed for startup businesses to flourish,” said Amir Yusuf, a director at Tomoca Coffee.
Tomoca prides itself on the art of marrying Ethiopian Coffee with the Italian technique. Some of the chain’s drinks include the Macchiato, Sprice, and Cravato Coffee.
Conversely, Tomoca coffee also prides itself on disrupting the status quo based on the origin of coffee and the ripple effect it had from domestic use to commercialization.
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.
