The club was restructured in 1995. Since then it is supported by the country's coffee exporters and by the fans who are getting stronger through time.
"Though until recently considered arch rival to the nation’s oldest, richest and most popular club, Saint George," noted a writer for the Addis Ababa Capital, "Coffee in the past couple of years faced high financial constraints hardly able to sign big name players. The result has been a decade existence never winning the premier league." In December, 2008 The Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX) bought Coffee, and Meta Abo Brewery signed a three-year sponsorship contract, both of which were expected to help the struggling football club. In 2010, Ethiopian Coffee FC won their first ever Premier league title beating St. George and Defence Forces Fc. In the same year, Ethiopian Coffee FC signed a worth sponsorship deal with Habesha Beer, their third ever sponsorship deal following worbek and meta Abo Beer.
