The subject matter was very interesting---how a coffee bean gets from the plant to your cup. There were several types of coffee to sample, and they were all excellent. The gardens were beautiful. The bathrooms were clean and pleasant.
Now the bad parts--the tour did not start on time. busloads trickled participants in and we had to wait till there were enough people to start.
The presenters were actors and conducted most of the proceedings in Spanish--I understood only about a third of what they were saying. I would have enjoyed this tour much more had I been fluent in Spanish.
After the tour, I asked the woman presenter/actress what many of the episodes were actually about. She was not fluent in English and even when she tried to explain to me (which she did), I understood only every third word.
There were no fruiting coffee plants on this 'plantation'. Participants in another tour were given red berries with coffee seeds inside, but I did not see an actual berry, which was disappointing, as I realized I was on the wrong tour.
Here is a tip--take the all day tour which includes a coffee plantation, the Poaz volcano and the Waterfall Gardens--that was one amazing day (I was supposed to do the Poaz volcano and then the Waterfall Gardens, but the tour guide somehow got mixed up. I was picked up for the Poaz volcano half day trip and then transferred to the Waterfall tour at Poaz--I joined a bus that had done the coffee plantation first (I assume it was with the guide who was with the bus, who was excellent and spoke entirely in English) and realized that was the tour I should have taken. I did the Britt coffee plantation the next day and considered that trip a waste of a perfectly good day I could have done something better.
