Nicaragua’s Selva Negra / La Hammonia Estate:
An introduction to Selva Negra:
In the 1800’s the Nicaraguan government had special programs to attract farmers and build their local coffee industry. Many German immigrants moved to the region and began to learn how to cultivate coffee trees, while also maintaining their traditions of raising livestock for eggs, cheese, and sausages. Like many coffee estates throughout the region, these farms attracted more settlers and grew into self-sustaining villages.
Owned and operated since 1975 by descendants of these early German settlers (the farm was out of family control for a bit but is now in its third generation of renewed family ownership), over the last twenty years continual improvement has been made in the estate’s sustainability and ecological footprint, evolving an inspiring holistic vision.
