“A little "corny" but fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

I live in Costa Rica and when friends or family visit I take them to the Britt Coffee Tour. The tour takes guests through an area of coffee plants and professional actors make an informative presentation about coffee. The actors have fun and engage the guests in the conversation using humor. The actors presentation and then the indoor stage presentation includes guests in the fun. Some may find the tour a bit staged but I watch both the crowd and my children/grandchildren enjoy the entire experience. Plus, the gift shop and coffee bar are great places to find souvenirs at reasonable prices.

“Informatively fun tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

Get the scoop on one of Costa Rica's top exports from the company who knows how to do it! Cafe Britt gives a fun tour. I wish that they would have had us pick a few coffee berries as part of the deal, but lots of fun in the gift shop too.

Dear visitor,

Thank you very much for your comments; this is what makes us better every day in everything we do. We are pleased to hear that you enjoy your stay in Costa Rica being part of our tour and our store. Unfortunately due to time, it is a little difficult to get participants to pick coffee, mostly if it is a big group or high season, although not ruling out the possibility of doing so with small groups or in low season. On the other hand, Costa Rican coffee season is from December to April, so this is something that we must also consider to be able to do so. We appreciate your comments and invite you to visit us again.

Pura Vida from Britt CoffeeTour team!

“Coffee 101”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2012

I am not one to take tours- I prefer to check things out on my own, but this is the one tour I actually took in CR. I decided to do this, simply because going to Costa Rica without visiting a coffee plantation seemed like I would be missing a large part of the culture. The bilingual guides were informative and entertaining! I wish I would have had more time to do one of the longer tours such as the coffee lover's tour!
