As a Tour Leader I have been to Doka several times. I love their tour and their farm is a beautiful place to hang out and overdose on premium quality coffee.
Go visit, you'll love it too!

If you are staying in San Jose, by all means take an optional countryside tour of the beautiful Doka coffee estate. The grounds are beautiful, and the drive from San Jose takes you through some beautiful countryside. The aroma of the freshly roasted coffee is wonderful. They also have samples for you to try in the restaurant. It is wonderful. Have lunch in the restaurant and try the grilled Tilapia. It is delicious.

Thank you very much for visiting Doka Estate Coffee Tour and La Cajuela Restaurant, but most of all for sharing your positive experience with others. Recently we have opened our Hydroponic Vegetable Garden to all of our visitors so they can watch and learn about how we grow most of our restaurant natural ingredients and how much we care about the quality of each of the wonderful dishes we serve, with comments like yours definitely our hard agricultural duties really worth every minute ! Please stay connected with Doka Estate by visiting our online store.

We took a tour of the Doka Coffee Estate and I would liken it to a winery tour. Because it was off-season and later in the day, it was like we had the place to ourselves. We had a great guide and went at a proper pace without feeling rushed or harried. We were treated a blended coffee drink prior to our tour. Tasty. They have a buffet style restaurant on-site and several groups were dining. Looked good. There are several other coffee estates in the greater San Jose area and to compare Doka to them is not fair because we did not visit them. However, I would recommend Doka not just for the tour, but the coffee. And they are as green of an estate as you can get. Nothing goes to waste. We got to sample all of their brands at the end which helped us decide on our purchases. We bought some on the spot and I ordered 10 more bags when I returned home. Well worth the visit.

Loved this tour! It was extremely interesting, and our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and took his time to answer all our questions. The coffee was delicious and even my eleven year old enjoyed the espresso! We bought a number of bags to bring home.

This was a very educational tour. We learned so much as we toured around the coffee estate facilities. Our guide was very knowledgeable and nice. At the end of the tour, we were able to sample the coffee at the gift shop. Our ticket also included lunch on the plantation. It wasn't great, but it was nice to enjoy the views and the breezy location.
