1. Msumbi Coffee

The first coffee shop of the Msumbi Coffees Estate opened in Arusha in 2004, and serves excellent coffee even today. Msumbi Coffees cultivates Arabica beans, processes them, and roasts them to perfection to create the delicious coffees. The cafe also serves freshly squeezed juices from fruits such as passionfruit, and foods such as sandwiches, apple pies, and cakes. The cappuccino and espresso are amazing, and you can also have tea. The cafe offers free Wi-Fi and provides a comfortable space for guests. One of the best facts is that the owners seek to promote gender equality and have therefore hired a number of women as staff members!
