Best Coffee

Best coffee place, unless you are in someone's home. Well worth a visit. Take a big breath before you go in as really smoky. Brought coffee here to bring home, good prices for best coffee.

Very much recommended by the locals. Excellent quality coffee shop. I stopped there while in the city for a great cup of coffee and actually bought some too to take home with me. If you are looking for quality coffee to drink or take home don't miss it.

We had a long stay over in addis. We checked for the best authentic place for coffee and fount out that this is the best and it was!! I highly recommend taking a taxi there, drink and buy coffee with the locals. The coffee was very good (I'm not a great coffee lover).

It is coffee that is important in this place. They are great; the coffee is great and the smell is just lovely. If I lived in Addis this would be my go to coffee bar.

Yes you will get the best "machine made" coffee in town here because you know, Ethiopia does make the best coffee and the traditional "Jebena Bunna" is in my opinion the better than any machine made coffee regardless of the origin. But yeah this is a very good coffee place and I love how they are now expanding all over... More

To mica has very good coffee...nice macchiato and espresso. Sometimes the place is overcrowded and there isn't much of customer service from the waiters and self service is the best option.
