The 2014 annual report on macroeconomic statistics published by the Central Bank of Nicaragua (BCN), states that “… In the coffee cycle 2014-2015, the area harvested mounted to 164.700 hectares, which produced 1 million 950 thousand hundredweight with an average yield of 11.8 hundredweight per acre. ”

In regards to this, coffee producer, Dionisio Lanzas, said “… Lower yields of the product are due to the fact that this has been a category which has been widely neglected in recent years. We do have excellent quality, but yields are very bad. Most coffee plantations in the country are more than 30 years old, that causes low yields per acre. ”
