Arenal, Monteverde, and the Northern Lowlands Sights

Monteverde Coffee Tour

  • Industrial Site/Mill/Factory

Fodor's Review

Bite your tongue before requesting Costa Rica's ubiquitous Café Britt up here. Export-quality Café Monteverde is the locally grown product, and the tour lets you see the process up close from start to finish, from the area's Turín plantation, 3 km (2 miles) north of Santa Elena where the plants are grown in the shade; transport to the beneficio, the processing mill where the beans are washed and dried; and finally to the roaster. Reservations are required, and pickup from area hotels is available. They also operate the Monteverde Coffee Center (coffee shop) in town next to CASEM.
