The top spot in Zanzibar for a serious cup of genuine East African Rift Valley coffee is undoubtedly this charming cafe. Alongside espressos and cappuccinos are milkshakes, crêpes, salads, sandwiches and toasted bruschetta. Tours of the roasting area can be arranged. Upstairs are eight guestrooms, decorated in traditional Zanzibar style.
This establishment is affiliated with Utengule Coffee Estate in Mbeya on the mainland, from where much of the coffee is sourced. If you want a souvenir, decorated packs of beans and ground coffee are for sale; if you just want good coffee, the same stuff is sold in plain packs for a lower price.
