I've done a couple of coffee plantation tours and this one was the best. Great guide, awesome staff and the tour was easy to follow and understand. The grounds are beautiful and I loved the butterfly house.

I highly enjoyed this tour- you experience all that goes into your coffee from literally the ground up. Would definitely have anyone I know go and experience it. I don't even drink coffee and I loved the experience.

My husband and I toured Doka as part of the Caravan Tour group. Our guide was very informative and showed us the production process from start to finish. We saw the cherries on the plants and he explained about the picking, sorting, roasting, etc. We toured the facility and were shown how they still use water as a source of... More

This was a very good tour, probably helped by our excellent guide who could answer every question thrown at him. This was a very interesting tour, only spoiled by the thick mist and cloud, and steady drizzle, but this was the day of Hurricane Otto so although I think there were other attractions there, it was hard to tell in...

Near San Jose and easily accessible. If you like coffee, you will love this place. Lunch is available . It is one of the oldest active plantations in continuous operation in CR. You get a great overview, interactive history of coffee and how it is processed. This was our second visit and it was better than the first. Jose was... More

We visited Doka Coffee Estate in December, and it was decked out for the holidays (which was a nice surprise). The tour itself was very informative and interesting, particularly since Doka is a family-run business that still uses water to process coffee -- the only estate in Costa Rica doing this. The tasting was great and the gift shop had... More
