Full description
Imagine following the journey of the coffee bean in the plantation from the plant to the cup of gourmet coffee you enjoy every morning.....this tour covers all the aspects of the coffee bean from planting to roasting to brewing the perfect cup! Visiting Cafe Britt is like stepping into a different world. The professional acting troupe, dressed in traditional garb will take you on an interactive, multimedia tour through the history of coffee. On the “finca”, as the plantation is called in Spanish, your tour starts in six acres of coffee fields, tropical gardens and coffee processing facilities. We will teach you all about coffee cultivation and not just by giving you the facts, feel free to pick a few ripe cherries to taste their sweetness or take a few of the dried beans home to grow a plant of your own. From the fields, we will take you into our roasting and packaging facilities where you will soak in the aroma of roasting coffee and learn all about the magical process that turns a red coffee cherry into a delicious cup of java. Then, in our theater, sit back and watch a multimedia play and presentation of coffee’s place in world history. Learn about how deeply coffee culture is woven into the history and people of Costa Rica and be prepared to have a few good laughs while you’re at it.

AWESOME. Best tour guides EVER!

The tour was very enjoyable. The two guides do a great routine together giving you the information about the plantation and process to get coffee. We really have never been on a more engaging, enjoyable tour. If you are a small group be aware that you will be combined with another group and that it will be in 2 languages (if the group is dual language). That is fine for the tour, but at times the interchange is so quick information is lost. At times it seemed like the Spanish speakers dominated ... but they were asking all the questions. :) But the guides do a little comedy routine as you are walking around the area and it was fun. Not the normal boring tour. We would do it again.

Fabulous, Fun, Informative

Our tour of the Britt Coffee Plantation was worthwhile. We had two tour guides who were funny, personable and very knowledgable. They kept us entertained as we learned the process of producing great coffee from seed to final packaging. We were able to taste many coffe varieties as well as many different chocolates. We also had an opportunity to purchase both And other souvenirs in Britt's gift shop. Finally, we were provided a fresh & tasty hot lunch before our driver picked us up to return us to our hotel. A half day well spent!
