Murad Hiyare, one of Tomoca's experienced baristas, plying his tradeTomoca now has five cafes across Addis Ababa
Traditionally it takes rather a long time to be served a cup of coffee in Ethiopia - but things are now speeding up.
As coffee plants originate from the east African nation - where they first grew wild before cultivation started in the country more than 1,000 years ago - it is perhaps unsurprising that Ethiopians take coffee drinking very seriously.
So much so that Ethiopia has a ceremonial method of making coffee at home that continues to this day.
The ceremony sees raw beans roasted over hot coals, with each person in attendance being invited to savour the smell of the fumes. The beans are then ground with a wooden pestle and mortar before finally being brewed - twice - in a clay boiling pot called a jebena.

Now is the right time to cash in on our history”
Wondwossen MesheshaTomoca's operations manager
While the resulting coffee is inevitably delicious, the whole process can take more than an hour. And a growing number of Ethiopians say they no longer have the time.
And so, as Ethiopia's economy continues to expand strongly, more people - led by young professionals in the capital Addis Ababa - are instead buying pre-roasted beans, or visiting coffee shops to have their favourite drink made for them.
It means boom times for the country's independent coffee roasters and cafes, who have seen their numbers rise and some are even looking to expand overseas.
Surviving Communism
The family-run Tomoca coffee shop, perhaps the best-known in Addis, lures in customers with the smell of freshly roasted coffee drifting from its chimney.
Located off one of the city's main shopping streets, it has been open since 1953 when it was just one of a handful of firms in Ethiopia roasting coffee.

While business was slow but steady for Tomoca during its first 20 years, times were tough when Ethiopia was ruled by a Communist dictatorship from 1974 to 1991. For those 17 years just staying in business as a private company was the priority.
Since 1991 though, the firm has made up for lost time, particularly in the last couple of years, benefiting from a rapidly expanding Ethiopian economy, which grew by 9% in 2012 and 10.4% in 2013.

Ethiopian coffee facts
Coffee beans
  • The two main species of coffee plants both originated in Ethiopia - the highly prized arabica, and the less well thought of robusta
  • Arabica, which has a better flavour and lower caffeine content than robusta, but only grows at a high enough altitude, is the type planted commercially in Ethiopia
  • Ethiopia has 5,000 different strains of arabica. By contract, countries such as Brazil and Colombia only have about 20
  • Ethiopia is the world's seventh-largest coffee producer
  • Half of Ethiopia's annual crop is exported

With a growing number of people in Addis now having the money - and desire - to go out for their coffee, Tomoca today has five cafes, and its turnover is growing by 70% a year.

The company also now has a dedicated coffee roasting plant just outside the city, which supplies supermarkets.
Wondwossen Meshesha, Tomoca's operations manager, says that the firm has finally been able to make some decent money after more than 60 years of building up its name.
"Now is the right time to cash in on our history," says the 28-year-old. "Our customers are really into the brand."
Starbucks influence
At Alem Bunna, another of Addis's independent coffee shops, its marketing manager Getachew Woldetsadick says the city's cafe culture is booming because young professionals lead such busy lives.
"They do not have time to sit at home for an hour roasting coffee," he says.

Yet such customers also say they are attracted to the quality of coffee available.
"I come here every day as I work nearby - I prefer this style," says 27-year-old accountant Tesfaye Abdissa, sitting inside Mokarar, another of Addis' coffee shops.
Mokarar's owner Tigist Tegene says the secret to the popularity of her firm's coffee is that they roast it using an old wood-fired oven.
"Customers like the shine and flavour this gives the beans," she says.
At the same time, Ethiopians are not impervious to Western-style hipness.

At Kaldi's Coffee, its green and white logo was inspired by US giant Starbucks, after its owner, Tseday Asrat, accompanied her husband, an Ethiopian Airlines pilot, on trips to the States.
Mrs Tseday now has no fewer than 22 branches in Addis, which teem with people ordering "short" and "tall" coffees.
Searching for partners
As well as serving a growing domestic market, Tomoca is now eyeing increased overseas sales.
Customers around the world can already order its beans by mail order, and it has a deal with a partner in Japan which sees Tomoca coffee distributed to Japanese restaurants, department stores and cafes.

Tomoca's Mr Wondwossen says the company now wants to sign similar partnerships in Europe and North America, including opening cafes under its own name.
"We need to find partnerships as we cannot do this on our own," says Mr Wondwossen.
Closer to home, the firm also plans to expand into neighbouring Djibouti, Kenya and Sudan.
Alem Bunna is also on the lookout for foreign partners, to help it expand into new African markets, followed by Europe and Asia.
Foreign invasion?
Yet as these small coffee roasters and shops are turning their attentions abroad, they could soon be facing competition at home from the big Western coffee chains.
For while government regulations currently prevent foreigners opening cafes in Ethiopia, this rule is expected to be overturned in the near future.
Geoff Watts, vice president at Intelligentsia Coffee, a roasting firm in Chicago, says he expects to see many global firms consider entering Ethiopia.
"Some of the big coffee chains would be interested as Ethiopia is a market that really appreciates coffee, and consumes a lot per capita," he says.
But those within Addis' thriving indigenous coffee scene say they are not worried by the potential arrival of foreign competitors.
As 19-year-old Eyerusalem Mesele, who runs a coffee stand outside a lively bar, puts it: "Customers come for my friendliness, and because they prefer traditional coffee."

Bamako, Mali - The Ethiopian national team “Walias” achieved a surprising result here today when they beat Mali 3-2 to avenge their 2-0 defeat in Addis Ababa on Saturday.
It was Mali who scored first through Bakary Sako (32″), but the Walias responded with 2 quick goals of their own by Omed Oukri (36′) and Getaneh Kebede (45′).
The second half didn’t start well for the Walias as Getaneh Kebede was given his marching order (59″) to be followed by Mali equalizing in the 69th minute thanks to Mustaph Yattabare.
It was Abebaw Butako who scored the winning goal for Ethiopia in extra time.
