“Educational and Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

We had a great time at the Doka Coffee Plantation. Our guide Omar knew his stuff and answered any and all of our questions. They take you through the entire process plant to cup of coffee. I wish I could have a whole gallon of the "iced coffee" they sample at the beginning of the trip, yummy! The other attractions on property, butterfly gardens etc. weren't incredible but it beat waiting at a table for the tour to start, they are trying to make the whole time you are there pleasant. And they deliver. Great tour, I recommend it to anyone interested in the science of coffee.

We have been on the tour 3 times as we have visited with different friends and learn and re-learn things every time. Our tour guide was Adriana and she was excellent.

“So interesting, and delicious coffee!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2012

My family stopped here on a group tour we were on, and we thought it was wonderful! The grounds are filled with beautiful flowers! We first had a lunch, which was very good. Then we took a tour of how they make coffee(the old fashioned way), which was very informative and interesting. We also got to try free samples of the coffee, and it was amazing! Stop here if you have time, it is worth your while.

“Awesome Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2011

This was my first visit to a coffee estate and it was one of my favorite experiences in Costa Rica. The tour guide was very informative and interesting. The coffee was fantastic and there is a gift shop and restaurant on site. There is a small butterfly garden as well.
