Fun, and informative. It is not a true coffee plantation. Britt is in many counties across the world but they are not growers, they are roasters. Worth checking out if you're in the San Jose area. It was educational regarding the growing and roasting of coffee beans. More of a skit then just a presentation. In the gift shop you... More

The tour is on a very small coffee plantation. Fun, light, and informative I would recommend it if you are a coffee lover, if not I'd skip it. While some coffee is grown and harvested on site, it is not a true coffee plantation. Britt is in many counties across the world but they are not growers, they are roasters.... More

Very Educational on the process of coffee growing. Enjoyed the tour but the once we got in the gift shop it was nice we were able to sample the different coffees that Maria spoke about. Coffee was good but a little a costly.

Have always enjoyed Café Britt coffee and considered its different roasting styles beans unique, approachable and differentiate from other roasters. It is definitely gourmet but with very reasonable prices comparing with those in United States. Through the very informative and interactive tour the guides made it very interesting such as how they work with consistent plantations (Café Britt is a... More

Interesting tour of how and why coffee is grown here in costa rica, however price for the tour and the transportation involved was in my opinion too much. Very basic technology during presentation. Gift store coffee is way overpriced, no deals buying straight from the source. Bilingual tour guide spoke English well.

Received lots of info about coffee that I didn't know.Tour guide Maria was awesome so funny and really enjoyed what she was doing, She basically ran a one man show. After tour saw short film and a very cute skit performed by Maria. Coffee in Costa Rica is wonderful. Cute gift shop.

At the beginning of the tour, I thought the tour guide was fighting with other employees. But we quickly realized that it's a kind of act to make the tour fun. We walked between coffee trees and received lots of information about coffee plantation. After that we watched a small video with some acting by our tour guides. It was... More

First, this is a very informative tour, and you'll learn a lot about coffee production and roasting. It requires a minimum of walking - it's far less strenuous than other tours I've been on, and is very appropriate for small children and elderly people. There's a strong focus on entertainment throughout the tour, which I find a little cheesy, but... More

The tour guide Maria was exceptionally engaging. She made sure everyone had a good time on the tour. The history of the coffee process was well explained, even though they don't grow the coffee themselves, she explained the entire process up to when they get the beans and what they do with them after. The lunch was really enjoyable and... More
