If you are a coffee lover, then you may have heard of Tomoca. The award-winning coffee roasting company is finally coming to Kenya. Operating as Tomoca Coffee Kenya, the first coffee shop will be situated at The Two Rivers Mall in Nairobi.
As a member of the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX), the company exports its coffee to Sweden, Germany, the USA, China, Japan and other countries across the globe. “This is the first venture for Tomoca within Africa. We chose Kenya as the gateway for our Africa-based expansion because of the country’s conducive investor environment,” said Amir Yusuf, a director at Tomoca Coffee.
Famed for its authentic coffee experience, Tomoca has been in the business of coffee since 1953. It prides itself in the art of marrying Ethiopian coffee with time-tested Italian coffee-making techniques. The family-owned business is identified as the gold standard of Ethiopian Coffee. It was the first coffee roasting company in Ethiopia to provide local and international markets with roasted and ground coffee.
In case you might be wondering what Tomoca means, it is actually an acronym – TO.MO.CA. It is derived from an Italian phrase, Torrefazione Moderna Café, which means modern coffee roasting. Tomoca has been providing an unmatched roast-to-cup coffee experience around the world. It is hoping to keep this legacy in Kenya by joining Nairobi’s vibrant coffee-drinking culture. It will be operating alongside established labels like The Mug and Java House. The brand intends to maintain its traditional Ethiopian flavour but add a touch of Kenyan and Rwandese blends.
You now have a new excuse to visit The Two Rivers Mall. To indulge in a Macchiato, Sprice or Cravato coffee at the Tomoca Coffee shop. If you are in the store early enough, you can watch the master roaster freshly roast and package the beans. Why you can even smell its rich aroma!
