Selva Negra Mountain Resort and Coffee Estate is a historical
coffee farm founded in 1891 by German immigrants. Since 1976 it has
also been a tourist resort. It is located in the department of
Matagalpa, Nicaragua, just 7 miles (11 km) from the city of
Matagalpa. According to Fodor's, Selva Negra is "arguably
Nicaragua's most famous hotel," and proprietor Eddy K hl is "a
personal friend of many of the country's power brokers." In the
1850s when gold was discovered in California, many American and
European passengers made their way to California crossing the
Isthmus of Central America through Nicaragua. On one of those
trips, a German couple (Ludwig Elster and Katharina Braun) from the
region named Black Forest (Selva Negra in Spanish) in Germany chose
to stay in Nicaragua rather than continue to San Francisco. Instead
of looking for gold they planted the first coffee beans in this
region. Coffee came to be of very good quality, so soon many other
Europeans and Americans showed up to do the same.
