Highly entertaining tour on the history and process of getting coffee from seed to roasted bean. Guides were very funny, and put on a good performance. The tour ends with coffee and chocolate tastings. Great way to spend a few hours in San Jose.

It's in Heredia but kind of out of the way, best to use a taxi to go and you can return by bus.
