The misty mountainsides of Costa Rica, rich with fertile, volcanic soils, are famed for growing some of the finest coffee in the world. If you’re curious about how your daily dose of wide awake makes it from the field to the cup, why not indulge in one of Costa Rica’s many coffee tours? They can be arranged throughout the country, most easily in central Costa Rica, close to the mountains, rather than the low-altitude coastal plains close to the best beaches. Plan accordingly.
