NICARAGUA, Hacienda Sejonia RESERVA JAVANICA
Owned by two English brothers, Tom and Matthew Hills since 2010, 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. It 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. High quality coffee was already grown in the area, the farm being able to trace its roots back to 1899, but lack of infrastructure investment and the use of old fashioned farming methods had left the farm in need of much renovation. As such, the brothers have embarked on long term plans for the farm.
