We offer bespoke experiences that focus on coffee education, nature exploration and rural community engagement.

It was an amazing trip through the process of coffee. From the planting to tasting the finished coffee. The whole process is explained in detail and understandable. Our guide was friendly and open to all questions. He really lives for his coffee and you can feel it.
Since we visited Costa Rica in the off season it was just the two of us, so we had a "private" tour.
We really recommend this tour.

We received the history of the town, an understanding of the growing/harvesting/processing of coffee, & tasted 2 types of coffee processes.

This was a great tour through the coffee trees learning the process and all about the landscape. Being on horseback makes it even better. Our guide knew a ton and was eager to share everything he knew.

This was an amazing experience. Starting in the coffee trees and following the whole process of what it takes to get a cup of coffee is amazing.

Everyone there is super knowledgeable and passionate about the craft. Makes it even better.

Our tour with Tyrone was super nice! He didn’t rush any at all and made a lot of time for us in his busy schedule. He has a deep knowledge of nature and shared tons of information about coffee plants, sustainable agriculture and the involvement of the company in the community. The small tasting in the end was tasty and more than generous!

Amazing tour !! Aquiares coffee farm is located in a really beautiful area. The guide was fantastic and we learned so much. Only locals work there, it’s a real community. Huge consciousness of the environment as well. I loved that tour and would recommend to anyone !

We arrived 2 hours early at the building of Aquiares and our guide invited us to come with him to the Aquiares Hacienda for the time in between. There we could rest from our journey at this beautiful place and were served fresh coffee which they didn’t want us to pay for.
Our tour was brilliant: coincidentally it was just the two of us for the tour at 2pm. So to say we had a private tour. It was very interesting and informative and entertaining and authentic. Our guide was very likeable and took all the time we needed for the questions so that in the end we were there for nearly 3 hours instead of the 2 it usually takes. Something that might distinguish the tour at the Aquiares facility is that they both have automated processes for the fully washed beans they produce but they also produce small batches of specialty coffee where they ferment the beans or take them through specific handmade processes. So one can see the whole bandwith of coffee production and all steps in the process.
All in all it was a great experience and probably the best tour we had so far in our stay.
I can totally recommend it.
