Did NPR Just say Colorado Chile is better than New Mexico Chile?

Yesterday, NPR  posted a story comparing Colorado Chile and New Mexico Chile. 

The Chile Pepper Rivalry Heats Up Between New Mexico's Hatch And Colorado's Pueblo

However, the article seems to only have focus on Colorado Chile. They quoted Colorado farmers as saying, " Try our peppers, because they're better.".

How does Colorado Chile and New Mexico Hatch Chile compare? According to NPR, Colorado Chile is "generally hotter, more pungent and meatier than the Hatch. Latino and Italian farmers have grown the pepper for more than a century in the fertile valleys of southern Colorado, a high desert region that's nevertheless perfect for growing because of its altitude and abundant water supply."

Can someone please tell NPR, they are mistaken?
