The La Sajonia Estate was established by the Ortiz and Baltodano families in Nicaragua as a step towards re-establishing agricultural production in post Sandinista Nicaragua. This initial investment has allowed the estate to build nurseries for rust-resistant root stock, install processing infrastructure, and provide the coffee-growing community with well-paid jobs, training, housing, schools and clinics. The philosophy behind this investment is to reap the benefits of professional management, a contented workforce, and improve the environment while producing quality coffee. The estate has taken steps to be more environmentally friendly, including recycling processing byproducts into alcohol as opposed to dumping them in the local waterways.
