Coffee in General

Although we have all consumed many cups of coffee during our lives, most of us still do not fully understand where coffee comes from and how it grows.

Not only will you be astonished when you finish this breathtaking yet informative tour, but you will have a new respect for the cup of coffee. Coffee grows at high altitudes on steep slopes.

On this tour, you will see all the processes involved with coffee production, first seeing the coffee plantation high in the mountains and then the entire process of coffee cultivation (harvesting, cleaning, washing, drying, selecting, roasting, grounding ect.) that turn a green red bean into a cup of rich dark liquid, called coffee.

There are two main qualities of coffee: Arabica and Robusta, Costa Rica produces only the Robusta quality which is of the highest quality.
The darkness of the coffee depends only on the roasting; Espresso coffee is done with a mixture of Robusta (60 %) and Arabica ( 40%) very dark roasted.Going home, you will bring with you the aroma of Costa Rica, taking with you some gourmet coffee;it is very inexpensive yet absolutly delicious, we will explain which coffee to buy and how to keep it as fresh as the day it was harvested in Costa Rica.
