Great coffee and friendly personal. You can buy some locally made delicious chocolate. You can have a small bite. Breakfast is delicious and not too big.

Awesome tour with up close and personal views into the world of organic chocolate making. Lots of amazing chocolate tasting. Beautiful property with lots of animal sitings. The owners are dedicated to the environment and support of the local Costa Ricans.
