Our partners in Nicaragua are Sajonia Estate Coffee, a family owned company located just outside of Matagalpa that has been producing, processing, and exporting coffee in Nicaragua since 2013. Their mission is to connect producers and consumers of high quality coffee based on social, environmental and economic values. Their goal is to create long-term and fair commercial relationships in the coffee chain. 

Recently Sajonia have created two programs in alliance with the public and private sectors. These initiatives focus on providing a platform to a diverse range of individuals and families within the vibrant Nicaraguan coffee community to improve quality and sell their coffee. 

There are two main projects within the initiative. The Campesinos Coffee Collection, which engages with and supports smallholder coffee producers in areas of natural reserve throughout Jinotega and Matagalpa, and the Las Fincas Collection, a microlot-focused processing initiative that supports medium and large sized farms in diversifying output and markets through experimental processing.
