Excellent stop

I don't like coffee and this was still a great stop. Lots of interesting history on the plantation and the coffee making process. Beautiful views included with free tastings.

Costa Ricans are extremely proud of their coffee. Since I'm not a coffee drinker, this tour was a concession to my husband, who must have his coffee each morning. The Doka Estate tour was part of a whole day tour of the Poas area. Our tour guide took us to the various stations and explained the process which was very... More

The tour was given by a friendly well informed and well rehearsed guide. The estate is in a very pleasant location and nicely landscaped. The butterfly garden and gift shop are worth visiting. The lunch was nothing special.

This was our first stop as part of a full day tour within this locality, and included a typical Costa Rica breakfast, which was self-service, but generally good and plentiful. Inevitably, given where we were, coffee was included! The tour of the estate takes you through the different processes used to make coffee, and the Doka estate has won the... More

Great tour of the Doka coffee plantation and all the steps it takes to produce this fantastic coffee. Our guide was extremely informative as we walked through the five separate areas of the processing plant. We got to sample the various coffees such as Breakfast Blend, Expresso, etc and what the colors of the beans mean. We didn't get to... More
