What To Expect

Begin the day with pickup at your San Jose hotel, and enjoy the comfort of a private, air-conditioned vehicle on a drive through the scenic countryside of Alajuela Province to the Barva de Heredia farm, home of the famous Café Britt coffee. Boasting Costa Rica's original coffee tour, the plantation has welcomed more than half a million guests since 1991. Hear about the history of the crop and how it has transformed the local economy during a live show with actors.
Follow the lifecycle of the coffee bean on a plantation tour, beginning in the nursery. Learn how Costa Rica’s soil and climate provide ideal growing conditions and how farmers carefully cultivate and select the finest beans for harvest. Continue on to the roasting area, where special techniques are used to extract the best flavor from dried beans, resulting in delicious aromas. Watch how expert tasters ‘break the cup’ to identify flavor characteristics, and see how the final, gourmet product is packaged and shipped all around the world.
After the tour, taste the famous Café Britt flavor for yourself with your choice of beverage from the coffee bar. You'll also enjoy a delicious buffet lunch from the on-site Don Prospero Restaurant, surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Before the return trip to San Jose, browse the gift shop and factory store, where freshly roasted beans and other coffee products can be purchased and shipped home as a delicious memento of your visit.
