Im a coffee lover from the heart of coffee ville (Seattle) so this tour definitely interested me. You dont actually go to a plantation as I thought but you end up at their rosting and packaging facility. They did a nice job with the facility and walk you through a tour of coffee origins to actually tasting yourself. The grounds... More

The place is very small, the food is ok, the tasting is much less than... More

If you want to learn how the coffee you drink is made, here you will find a very funny and interesting way to do it. Can be boring for kids.

Great coffee in addition to a great tour. Now we know how they make all that great coffee! Our visit included lunch here and it was very good with great service. We even saw one of the fancy oxen drawn carts that was painted in lovely designs. Great gift shop with lots of coffee to buy.

The tour was not that long but very enjoyable and educational. Learned that you can eat the gel inner layer of the fresh coffee bean. Similar to a "Jelly Bean" plus you can't beat the smell of roasting coffee.

We booked on this tour before we left home, as something leisurely to do as we recovered from jet lag! So glad we did it, fascinating insight into coffee (no idea how many bits were inside a bean!) delivered by two friendly amusing guides. We booked to include transport from our hotel and lunch (10.25 pick up for 11am tour)... More

The Britt coffee tour was very canned, but we did learn a lot about coffee and the roasting process. The guides were friendly and engaging. It was a fun experience.
