First and formost, Selva Negra is a coffee plantation and organic farm. Moreover, since 1975, when Karen Kühl’s parents acquired the property, it has also become an eco-lodge at 1200m above the town of Matagalpa, in the north of Nicaragua.
This huge area of 450 hectares is in the heart of the mountain: one third is cultivated (in a very responsible manner as the coffee is shade-grown). One third remains wild, to the delight of hikers, birds, and even monkeys, all waiting to welcome you!
Selva Negra is also an NGO (non-governmental organization) : www.sncfinc.org. Its mission is to promote and develop a sustainable way of life in the northern region of Nicaragua (Matagalpa and Jinotega) through education and research. At best, being an NGO makes it easier for Selva Negra to share its expertise in organic agriculture and alternative energies with other farms in the area.
