“Only authentic coffee tour in Monteverde”

Santa Elena Cooperative Coffee Tours
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 January 2012

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.

Cofee tour is so special because of visit to the small organic coffe field which is set in an beutifull surroundings. After visiting coffe plants with a farmer it is nice to sit in a simple house and enjoy the tranquility of the place. With all the nature sounds and hot coffe of course! And if you're like, there will be some banana home buiscuits made from the farmers wife...
After the visit of the farm it is time to see how the coffe is dried and rosted in Santa Elena. There is also ashop and a coffee restaurant, so you can test different sorts of coffe
Very informative, good guides, interesting also for children !

Thank izi11
