The mix of milk and organic coffee have very nice taste aside from its aromatic and don't forget coffee is orignaly from Ethiopia. Coffee is a hot drink by most Ethiopians as it is a known stimulant.

Tomoca sells roasted whole beans at the original shop in town and at their shop in the Radisson Blu hotel. I don't think they sell green coffee beans, just 2 or 3 types of roasted beans.
