Specialty Coffee & Gourmet Chocolate Private Tour
A tour that reveals the secrets behind "The Magic Seeds". Two products that have placed Costa Rica among the specialty market's top choice.
First we stop at a fruit shop, a nice opportunity for you to try fruits you may not had before.
Then we head to the Cacao Workshop. Here you will learn the whole process from the raw cacao seeds to the final product. You will be able to experiment with different techniques and spices to make your own chocolate candy.
Afterwards, we continue exploring this beautiful region and our next stop is the amazing (eco friendly) Traditional Oxcart Factory.
Then, we visit a multi-awarded coffee plantation up in the mountains of Naranjo at 5000 ft. (a. s. l). Discover why the coffee that it's grown here is considered one of the finest in the World. Enjoy a sampling the famous Arabica Honey Coffee that this five generation family of coffee growers have taken to the next level.
A stroll through this fine coffee estate is a memorable experience itself.
Pick up at your hotel or cruise ship terminal in Puntarenas (Central area).
Drive towards the gourmet cacao garden and workshop located in the beautiful area of La Garita.
Then we head to the Oxcart Factory in Sarchí, also known as the land of the handcrafts.
Not far from Sarchí, but 2000 ft higher, the coffee plants in Naranjo bear sweet, citric and nutty flavors that the roasting masters enhance to please the demanding markets worldwide.
After discovering the source of these magic seeds we go back to your hotel or cruise ship terminal.
