Description

Experience the original Costa Rican coffee tour at our farm located in Mercedes Norte, Heredia. Since 1991, over 500,000 guests from around the world have visited our plantation to learn about and share our passion for Costa Rican coffee. On our Classic Coffee Tour, our experts guide you through the life cycle of gourmet coffee. Starting in our nursery, you’ll follow the growing cycle through to the harvest and selection of the finest beans. Learn how Costa Rica’s unique climate and diverse landscapes provide perfect growing conditions for gourmet coffee beans.


Next, get swept away by the unmistakable smell of our coffee roastery, as you discover how different roasting techniques affect the beans and the brew. We’ll reveal the roasting and packaging secrets that allow us to deliver the best Costa Rican coffee from the plantation to your cup—anywhere in the world. Learn how experts taste or “cup” coffee to identify and grade gourmet coffee, and maybe try “breaking the cup” yourself! Finally, surrounded by our outdoor tropical paradise and while listening to traditional music, you can enjoy a buffet lunch featuring local ingredients at our Don Próspero Restaurant. Visit our coffee bar to order and enjoy a perfectly crafted coffee drink. Browse our factory store and gift shop, and let us ship souvenirs and fresh coffee back to your home to remind you of your Costa Rican coffee adventure.
