Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Our activity starts picking you up at your hotel around La Fortuna area. The firts part of the tour includes a nice hike through our plantation with a professional guide who knows all the information about how our specialty products are grown and all their diferent processes. We always do our traditional roasting, grinding and brewing. Roasting coffee is one of the most complex and pleasurable experiences, the aromatic smoke impacts the senses just as fully as drinking it. Grinding coffee manually is even more romantic and agreeable and the brewing is when all the magic comes out for you to enjoy every single step. The activity includes coffee, arepas, sugar cane and chocolate tasting.
