Although he grew up in Ethiopia, this young 30-year-old producer spent a large part of his young adult life in the United States. He chose to return to his native country a few years ago and has since invested in coffee production. He manages a vast farm in the Jimma appellation, where he and his teams work hard to produce quality coffee while protecting the site’s exceptional environment.
