Lovely people, very welcoming and accommodating. I was worried about my luggage in the car as I was between destinations. Roberto answered my query very promptly and it was no problem as the area is guarded with a check-post.
The grounds are not huge but very lush and green. There is a lawn, petting zoo and a butterfly garden.
The tour was led by a very knowledgeable and humorous Maria. I certainly know more now about coffee and how to taste it.
To finish off I had a (generous portions) salad which was very fresh and extremely reasonably priced. The menu is varied and suits everyone.
Overall a good three hours well spent. Would recommend.

I had very high expectations from this tour due to all the positive reviews I read. It was very good, but short of excellent. We signed up last
minute and they had space for us (online the website said it was booked, but when I emailed they said they had room in the tour). The tour group was a fairly large size, 24 people that were both Spanish and English speaking. The tour guide was good but he first explained everything in Spanish and then English which made the tour feel longer than it was. They could have easily split the group in 2 and done one in English and one in Spanish. It felt rushed because he was getting through the information fast but long as we had to wait for him to do his Spanish bit first. The kids were getting impatient towards the end. I thought we would have gotten to see some of the process live, since we were in the coffee bean harvest season (I read with some of the smaller coffee farms you can see the bean being harvested). Overall a decent tour, but if I could have done it again I would have chosen some of the smaller farms to get a more intimate feel.
We ate at the cafe after the tour and the food was pretty good.

The coffee tour was fun, entertaining, casual, friendly, and informative. Our tour guide Luis did a great job switching between English and Spanish and keeping us laughing. The grounds are beautiful and lunch was delicious. Would definitely recommend spending a couple hours learning more about coffee if you're in the area. Staff were all very friendly and booking was easy and quick. We booked online the night before for our tour with no problems.

I wish the tour guides spoke English as much as Spanish. I found others laughing when the guide spoke Spanish but then no English interpretation given. I did the lunch tour, save your money. Even the pico gallo rice was hard and undercooked, not good for a Costa Rican staple. The butterfly garden was nice. Lots of tasting opportunities so be careful of over doing the caffeine. The gift shop was nice and had better prices on their special regional coffee blends. Their regular blends can be purchased in San Jose markets for less.

We took the tour of Brit a part of a tour to Heredia. We learned so much and the women who were our guides not only provided lots of interesting info, they were also good actresses; and we got to sample different types of coffee. A lunch buffet was included in our tour.

Great tour with lots of information. Luiz is a pro and very knowledgeable. I don’t even like coffee but sampled it and it was really a smooth. They kindly gave 3 of us a private tour as we turned up between tours. Highly recommend it and we bought some coffee from the gift shop afterwards too !

This was my second time and my hubs’ first to enjoy a tasty lunch, send coffee to the US, and best of all learn, view, taste and compare the coffees (and brewing) presented on this tour. We had Luis teach us a lot. It’s amazing what a coffee bean can do. We loved our three hour stay, swimming in coffee, the liquid gold of creation.

I thought it was a bit expensive at 26usd but it was so worth it. We had a tour for 2 people, tasting of various coffee blends. Butterfly conservatory pass, and all our questions answered. Luis, our tour guide was increaible. So knowledgeable, friendly, energetic and honest. I would recommend this tour to anyone. As a budget backpacker, I say this was money well spent.

This was such a nice your! But what made it more amazing was our tour guide Maria. She was bubbly, hilarious and charismatic and made the whole tour 100 times better because of presence. The tour itself was good too lots of nice information and even though I'm not a coffee person the Póas coffee was the best!
