Our Nicaragua Hacienda Sajonia Coffee
Hacienda Sajonia Hacienda Sajonia is located in the beautiful El Diablo – Datanli nature reserve high up in the relatively cool cloudforest clad mountains between Matagalpa and Jinotega in northern Nicaragua. The journey to the farm is just a three-hour drive up to the northeast from the capital, Managua, placing it right in the middle of Nicaragua’s premier coffee growing region.
Hacienda Sajonia covers an area of 640 manzanas (c.1,040 acres), of which over half is primeval rainforest, home to an incredible array of flora and fauna.
Purchased by two English brothers, Tom and Matt Hills, in 2010 they have steadily been making improvements to the farm and the conditions for the workers and their families. From 2000 – 2010 the farm had diminished from 520 acres to 150 acres, then the Hills brothers took it on and they are very active in developing soil management practices and good planting strategy to rejuvenate the coffee farm
and produce top quality speciality coffee. The slow growth of this Strictly High Grown (SHG) coffee results in a denser high quality bean and the El Nino effect is causing shortened tail end ripening to produce coffees that are quite superb. The farm is able to provide micro-lots of different varietals as well as farm-blend green coffee.
