" Dinkinesh is a single-farmer microlot from the heart of the Yirgacheffe district, milled and exported by the former manager of the robust Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union. Konga, where this coffee is grown, is part of Yirgacheffe, one of 8 "woredas", or districts, that together comprise the dense and competitive highland zone of Gedeo. The entire Gedeo zone is in fact often referred to as “Yirgacheffe” thanks to the notoriety of this particular district. Konga is centrally located among Yirgacheffe producers, being just a few kilometers south of the town of Yirga Chefe itself—a surprisingly small community given its mythical stature as one of the world’s most gifted coffee landscapes.

Dinkinesh employs 12 pickers each harvest for cherry collection. Cherry is delivered throughout the day during harvest, where it is inspected and sorted for acceptability based on ripeness and uniformity. Once received, cherries are moved directly to the drying tables where they spread in a single layer to dry in the sun. The full drying process normally takes 3 weeks. The dried fruit is then hulled from the coffee seed locally, and then transferred to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital. In Addis the coffee is dry-milled by Konga Trading PLC, using modern color sorting equipment and a fleet of trained workers who repeatedly hand-sort the coffee for export. Takele Mammo, the founder of Konga Trading, was for many years the manager of Ethiopia’s Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU). During his time with the union, Takele, in partnership with Royal, regularly facilitated select individual farmer exports together each year from within the cooperative union structure. It was considered very unusual at the beginning, but over time this effort laid the groundwork for what is now a robust demand for unique, small-farm coffees from Ethiopia’s most famous specialty area.

The taste and rarity of this incredible coffee caught our attention at Provision, and so we just had to bring it to our line-up. As the final single origin for 2023, we are closing with a superb coffee with its notes of herbaceous lavender, creamy vanilla, and sweet Bartlett pear. "
