Cocoa seen surpassing coffee in Nicaragua

Monday, October 13, 2014

Cocoa bean farming is set to overtake coffee in some regions of Nicaragua, as climate change hits production.

Coffee-growing areas will diminish, and cocoa beans are a perfect substitute, said Lars Saquero Müller, director of Ingemann, a firm that recently won Nicaragua's Cocoa Excellence Award 2014.

The company gathers cocoa beans from more than 350 producers accross the country.
