Nazimu was born and raised in the village Botto in the Jimma region. That’s also where you’ll find the well-known processing station and cooperative Duromina, which Nazimu co-founded and managed for eight years. During that time he also grew his own coffee and sold his cherries to the Duromina station, where his lots were mixed in with the others. To increase the quality of his product and receive a higher price he needed to increase the traceability and ability to control each step of the process. So instead of selling his coffee to the coop Nazimu started to process and export it himself. His land is directly neighbouring an ancient forest where coffee still grows wild. In the shadow of the old trees, Nazimu’s coffee cherries mature slower than they would if they were exposed to direct sunlight. This makes for a sweeter, brighter and more complex coffee. Nazimu’s work is coloured not only by his great knowledge and experience but also by the pride he puts into it.
