Hacienda Sajonia is located in the beautiful El Diablo Datanli nature reserve high up in the relatively cool cloud forest 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. .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. Having formed a long-term vision for Hacienda Sajonia, since 2010 they have started to implement a wholesale renovation programme. The aim, over a 10-year period, is to transform not only the coffee plantations and the quality of the coffee produced but also the social and environmental conditions on the farm. The coffee area in 2010 was just 90mz (150 acres), having been close to 300mz (520 acres) at the turn of the millennium. The objective is, through careful and gradual planning and where the conditions are right, to restore large parts of the farm to coffee production. For areas previously in coffee production but where the conditions are not perfect alternative agricultural uses will be sought.
