Fodor's Expert Review Coopedota Santa Maria

Zona de Los Santos Food/Candy

The best place to buy local coffee is where 800 farmers bring their raw coffee beans to be roasted and packed into jute bags at the first carbon-neutral coffee producer in the world. You can buy three dozen different coffee beverages and export-quality coffee at the café shop for about $8 per pound (about half the price you'll pay at the airport). Choose between light or dark roast and en grano (whole bean) or molido (ground). A variety of tours are offered ($32 to $41), covering everything from processing to tasting to the cooperative's innovative recycling. Check out the website for details of tours or email to make reservations.
