Our Story

Shecha gro Industry is a estate established by Mr. Hayal Kassa and Ms. Elsa Negash located in Kaffa Zone, Southern region. It is in a forest long known as Shecha, 1850-2000 meters above sea level and a distance of 14 kilometers from Bonga city and 463 kilometers from Addis Ababa, the Ethiopia's capital city. For the last ten years, this estate has been tended with care and community to produce the best craft grown specialty coffee in Ethiopia and beyond.

This, in light of the fact that our estate is located within Kaffa, where Kaldi, a young Ethiopian goat herder discovered how excited his goats became after eating beans from a coffee plant (Coffea Arabica) in the 9th century; essentially the DNA of original wild coffee and the root of the word "coffee". At Shecha we have worked towards a holistic enterprise by focusing on our social responsibility with the local community whose life has always revolved around coffee. Coffee seedlings from Shecha's nursery were given to our community along with training on appropriate modern environmentally friendly care techniques.

Shecha contributed construction materials for Yeba, a full primary school (grades 1-8). We built a 35 kilometer road throughout Shecha estate to facilitate our work and that of our community. Environmental mitigation efforts include planting of trees as well as the establishment of a large apiary, where bees feed on our coffee blossoms. Organic Shecha honey has been on sale since 2014 and the yield continues to grow along with our coffee beans.
