This is the best coffee I have ever had. I love the tour and understanding the different quality of beans. We bought some coffee and the dark chocolate covered peaberry coffee beans. Awesome

I have been on a few coffee tours while visiting different parts of the country. Although I did learn some tidbit information, I found the tour to be rushed and felt misinformed about some of the information provided. The guide could speak excellent English. I also found it to be extremely expensive for what you got - a quick tour... More

I don't like coffee and this was still a great stop. Lots of interesting history on the plantation and the coffee making process. Beautiful views included with free tastings.

Costa Ricans are extremely proud of their coffee. Since I'm not a coffee drinker, this tour was a concession to my husband, who must have his coffee each morning. The Doka Estate tour was part of a whole day tour of the Poas area. Our tour guide took us to the various stations and explained the process which was very... More

The tour was given by a friendly well informed and well rehearsed guide. The estate is in a very pleasant location and nicely landscaped. The butterfly garden and gift shop are worth visiting. The lunch was nothing special.

This was our first stop as part of a full day tour within this locality, and included a typical Costa Rica breakfast, which was self-service, but generally good and plentiful. Inevitably, given where we were, coffee was included! The tour of the estate takes you through the different processes used to make coffee, and the Doka estate has won the... More
