Climate: Nicaragua Solar Dryers Instead of Drought

Deutsche Welle (June 3, 2013) — Nicaragua's unique weather conditions are ideal for growing coffee and cocoa beans.

Increasingly, crops are spoiling before they're harvested. With the help of solar dryers however, coffee, cocoa, fruit and wood can be dried within hours and made to last longer without adding chemicals. The Austrian company CONA has become the leading exporter of the component parts of these devices, which are being installed in even the remotest parts of the country.
