Nicaragua Hacienda Sajonia
Nicaraguan Hacienda Sajonia has a sweet honeydew melon acidity with honeysuckle aroma and orange blossom notes, a brown sugar sweetness and a full bodied mouthfeel. It is Rainforest Alliance certified and is fully washed and sun dried.
Hacienda Sajonia was bought in 2010 by two English brothers, Tom & Matt Hills. Although it was a beautiful place, the farm was in a sorry state but the brothers were inspired not only by the farm's beauty but also its potential to produce speciality coffee. The brothers set about upgrading the farm, planting more coffee wherever possible and introducing modern agronomic practices to bring it up to the standard required for speciality coffee. They also improved the social and economic conditions on the farm.
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.
The farm is set at an altitude ranging from 1,280 metres to 1,580 metres at its peak, which puts it among the more elevated coffee farms in Nicaragua. The specific climate of our location is perfectly suited to producing high quality coffee beans.
