If you're ever in Addis and want to taste what a Machiato should taste like, then this is where you need to go. The most delicious coffee ever at such a cheap price! A bit off the beaten track but definitely worth the visit.

Nice coffee, good blends. You can choose the blend that is right for you. I prefer the darker blends!

Don't mind the not-so-fancy setup. They know their coffee business! I've gone there many times to pick up freshly roasted beans and was never disappointed! Treat yourself to a freshly brewed cup of bunna while you wait!

We liked the cafe atmosphere. Full of local youth, you have the chance to mix and mingle. They serve excellent macchiato, that you can also buy.

It was great, but the espresso machine was broken when we went and they didn't communicate that to us so we ended up waiting 25 minutes for a quick coffee. But it was delicious!

The coffee is just excellent, my friend had an amazing machiatto, the shai/bunna sprice are great! The smell when you walk by is delicious! It is not a touristic place, you see few farenjis, mostly ethiopians coming.

A common place to meet with local ethiopians and enjoy a traditional blend of ethiopian coffee. The Machiatos are simply amazing. If your a coffee addict you wont be disappointed this is the place to be at.
