Thoroughly enjoyed our visit with the tasting and matching ( eg chocolate and garlic a particular surprise success!) being the highlight. Great to be shown the full process of chocolate making from getting a fruit off the tree and tasting it fresh.

I wish the coffee in CR were as uniformly superb in the US. Strong and dark. It will wake you up. Drank it all day after jet lag. Everywhere I went it was perfect. Didn;t try chocolate. Next time.
