Established in 1953, in Addis Ababa – Ethiopia, TOMOCA a family-owned business became the very first coffee roasting company in the country. Its kinship and passion to produce & share its high-quality roasted aromatic coffees with the world, quickly gained it recognition within local, regional & international markets. Today its unmatched service & delivery of the highest grade ‘from-roast-to-cup’ Ethiopian Arabica, makes it a brand name synonymous with leading coffee experts, aficionados, celebrities and coffee lovers from around the globe.
TO.MO.CA is an acronym for Torrefazione Moderna Café – Italian for modern coffee roasting – and is widely considered the Gold Standard of Ethiopian Coffee.
THE STORY & SPIRIT BEHIND THE BRAND
“History has it that in the 9th century, a native herdsman named Kaldi noticed one of his goats acting rather untoward after eating berries from a certain shrub. Kaldi conferred with a local Abbot about the frolicsome behavior of his goat. This peeved the interest of the Abbot, and the practice grew from the monastery, into the community, and finally unto the world. Just as the goat did TOMOCA aims to disrupt the status quo, and as a company they direct their own path and lead where others will follow.”
