While staying at the nearby Peace Lodge we took a morning trip to tour this coffee plantation. The samples were great and we learned a lot about the history of coffee in general and in Costa Rica. Who knew it was so complicated.

This was worth the drive from San Jose! The guides were hilarious and you can try lots of different types of coffee. The chocolate is also awesome and there is a great gift shop and restaurant. Small and easy tour.

It's in Heredia but kind of out of the way, best to use a taxi to go and you can return by bus.
