This place is perfect for a good coffee. The freshly ground coffee beans made right infront of your eyes and also available to purchase is a rare arrangement not easy to be found .

Quick pit stop for lunch, with excellent club sandwich if you really, really hungry. Coffee equally good, with great service and friendly staff. Will be back!

As a coffee shop enthusiast who's been to most coffee shops in Arusha, I'd say Misumbi probably has one of the best coffees in town and probably a very skilled barista behind the scenes. Its ambience is rustic and african. Its average coffee prices are slightly higher than other places of the same standard though,. Its a slight difference however.

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the Central Market and many other places. We had picked up a local "fake Maasai" guide and he knew where to go and what to see. Our lunch here (and our coffee) was very good.

I love having some chill time at Msumbi. The staff are lovely and attentive and the caffeine hit is pretty on point.

Great little coffee shop in the Nakumatt, TFA center. It's a regular stop whenever we're in town. Great service and yummy coffee. Even better when they are roasting when you're there. The aroma fills the place.

This chain of Columbian owned coffee houses has a spot in the same centre as Nakumatt Supermarket (as well as a small spot at Arusha Airport and in Stone Town, Zanzibar, if memory serves me well) and has become a regular pit-stop for us after we have shlepped around town on foot doing some shopping.
