TO.MO.CA Coffee

My ears perked up when Justin announced we were going to Piazza to find a famous little cafe by the name of TO.MO.CA Cafe (the name is abbreviated from the original Italian name Torrefazione Moderna Cafe).  The family owned cafe and coffee roasting house was the first established in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia way back in 1953.  It took us a bit to find the cafe and we detoured for lunch first but the moment I walked in I felt like we were transported back to the 60's.
 Justin ordered espresso and I had a Macchiato.  The coffee was fantastic as usual in Ethiopia but TO.MO.CA beans are slow roasted with Italian made roasting machines and you can tell a difference.
