Café Britt is one of the largest coffee producers in Costa Rica, and the company has put together an interesting and professional tour at its farm, which is 20 minutes outside of San José. Here you’ll see how coffee is grown, and you’ll visit the roasting and processing plant to learn how a coffee “cherry” is turned into a delicious roasted bean. Tasting sessions are offered for visitors to experience the different qualities of coffee. The farm also has a restaurant and a store where you can buy coffee and coffee-related gift items. The entire tour, including transportation, takes about 3 to 4 hours. Allow some extra time and an extra $10 for a visit to the nearby working plantation and mill. You can even strap on a basket and go out coffee picking during harvest time.
