Cocoa beans are grown in Nicaragua
Like every country in Central America, Nicaragua is closely involved with the history of chocolate. The cultivation of cocoa began in 1550 thanks to Spanish colonists who imported the Criollo and Forastero varieties. Although Nicaragua doesn't reach the production levels of some bordering countries, the fields are widespread and profitability has been improved thanks to the hybridization of cocoa bean varieties. More than half of its exports (55%) go to the European Union. In the end, Nicaragua's annual production is around 1,000 tons, a portion of which is processed on site before being exported. However, national production suffers from a lack of fermentation. In the chocolate industry, fermentation is a process synonymous with high-quality cocoa.
Chocolate, a national symbol
In Nicaragua, people consume chocolate mainly as a hot beverage which, according to tradition, is very nourishing. Chocolate bars are not often consumed because to a large extent the price of these products is too high in comparison to the average Nicaraguan's income. This cultural heritage is embraced by the population as a link with Pre-Columbian history. Note also that cocoa is grown in the north of the country, the south is trying to get the industry back on track. You have surely noticed this passion for chocolate drinks if you have traveled to the big cities such as Managua, the capital, León, Chinandega, Masaya and Estelí. You also shouldn't hesitate to use the chocolate delivery service to Nicaragua made available to you by Planète Chocolat.
