I came to Monteverde seeking authentic coffee, and I found it with the tour provided by the Cooperative of Santa Elena coffee growers. They recently moved locations, and are next to the post office just outside of the main "triangle" in Santa Elena. Their website is www dot monteverde-coffee dot com. You take a small bus to the farm of Juan, 40 year veteran and founding member of the cooperative who shows you around his farm. You can smell the coffee plant blossoms, eat fresh coffee "cherries" straight off the plants, and see how coffee is made from plant to cup. The tour finishes with home baked banana bread (from trees on the farm) and fresh brewed coffee. Highly recommended, especially compared to the theme park feel of the other local coffee tours.
