Fodor's Review

The producer of Costa Rica's most popular export-quality coffee gives a lively Classic Coffee Tour highlighting Costa Rica's history of coffee cultivation through a theatrical presentation that is admittedly a bit hokey. Your "tour guides" are professional actors, and pretty good ones at that, so if you don't mind the song and dance, it's fun. During the 1 1/2-hour tour, you'll take a short walk through the coffee farm and processing plant, and learn how professional coffee

tasters distinguish a fine cup of java. A four-hour Coffee & Nature tour delves into the process at a more expert level. You can also stop in at their Coffee Bar and Factory Store, 8 to 5 daily. Although both coffee tours devote themselves entirely to the production and history of Costa Rica's most famous agricultural product, Britt is also a purveyor of fine chocolates, cocoas, cookies, macadamia nuts, and coffee liqueurs; you'll see its products for sale in souvenir shops around the country and at the airport as you leave.
