The coffee in Costa Rica is superb, so to sample the many varieties that Britt offers was fantastic. Not only did we sample coffee varieties, but all kinds of coffee candy and treats. I purchased a lot for my trip home. The expresso coffee bean candies are excellent! Fun for the whole family, but particularly for the coffee addicts in... More

I've drank coffee my whole adult life and never really knew what it took to get that cuppa. The tour we took started with a couple of cups of sampling the wonderful coffee and covered from planting to package beginning with a little tale about the history of coffee, specifically Britt Coffee. A meandering walk through the nursery and a... More

I would not book the tour as it's pretty rudimentary and simple ... but I would definitely not stop coming to Britt Coffee shop directly -- This is a must while in Costa Rica's metro area, you'll love the variety of coffee and chocolate base products! They make an excellent souvenir for friends and family too ...

The Britt Coffee Tour is a highlight of any visit to San Jose. They have coffee samples along the way, very interesting narrative, hands on tasting and planting. You can see how coffee is grown from sprouts through mature plants. You can also see how they roast the beans and prepare it for sale and export. They have wonderful chocolates,... More

I had an awesome tour with my host family here in Costa Rica at Cafe Britt in Heredia! I ws surprised that such a nice coffee plantation was located in the middle of a somewhat-busy town. Our tour guides (I forgot their names) were both hilarious and informative. I speak fluent Spanish along with my host family - who speak... More

This was a fun way to spend a couple of hours. While not in a coffee plantation the tour is set among coffee plants and you can wander among them and the butterfly house in your own time before or afterwards. The guides are friendly and fun and there's lots of different types of coffee to try.

My family and I took this tour a couple of days ago. We all found it very informative and fun. The 2 guides we a bit slapstick but overall it was fun. Don't drink too much coffee on this tour or you won't sleep that night.
