    What to Expect
    Take your pick from four daily departure times, and begin the day with pickup at your Monteverde hotel. Begin with an exploration of Costa Rica's beloved caffeinated export on a coffee tour, where you’ll trace the history of the crop and how it became such an important part of the tiny nation’s socioeconomic development.

    Learn how ripe coffee cherries are picked, and hear the stories of the migratory workers who play such an important role in the harvesting process. If touring during harvest season (usually November to February), try your own hand at coffee picking. Then, see how the raw cherries are transformed into aromatic brew with stops at the depulping machine, drying patio, storage warehouse, and coffee roaster. If you like, take a ride on a typical ox cart for a sense of how coffee farmers historically traveled. Finally, complete the journey with a steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee and a snack at the farm’s La Casona restaurant.

    Once properly caffeinated, you'll next learn about another celebrated Central American crop on a chocolate tour. See how cacao beans are roasted, separated, and ground into smooth, rich chocolate using traditional methods. After participating in this process, taste the finished product in various forms including a velvety drink and solid chocolate flavored with spices or coffee.

    End your tasting experience on a sweet note with a look at Costa Rica’s sugar cane industry. Learn how to extract sugarcane juice from the reeds, and then enjoy a glass of the pure, sweet liquid along with pieces of raw sugarcane.
