Why Don Juan Coffee Tour Monteverde?

While traveling through Costa Rica, you’ll likely see coffee fields spreading out in green-and-brown mosaics across the hillsides. It’s an attractive, pastoral sight.

Monteverde is home to some of the country’s best specialty coffee. Our climate is perfect for growing coffee. Our soil is volcanic, slightly acidic, and highly fertile, and our elevation – 4,600 ft. (1,200 and 1,400 m) – nicely suits the needs of coffee plants.

At Don Juan Monteverde, our coffee berries are handpicked from the plants. Then we take the berries to our “beneficio” (processing plants), where they are washed and removed from the pulp. The beans are then artisanally dried in the sun and then roasted.

Touring a coffee plantation is a great way to learn about the history and production of this hardy plant. At Don Juan Monteverde, as you walk through the fields, our guides will explain how coffee is grown and harvested.

You will learn about the de-pulping, drying, and roasting process and enjoy a fresh coffee cup at the end. Don Juan Coffee Tour Monteverde is a fantastic informative experience.

Excellent Coffee Tour Don Juan Coffee Tour Monteverde

We did the coffee, chocolate, sugarcane 3 in 1 tour at Don Juan Coffee Tour. We ended up getting the tour to ourselves. We learned so much and enjoyed tasting and smelling the ingredients. The tour was hands-on; we got to help grind beans, juice the sugarcane, etc.
