We had a great tour of the historic Doka Coffee Plantation. It was not harvest season, but the guide did a great job of explaining the process. We learned alot about what makes good coffee, better coffee, and crap coffee. And of course you can purchase several varieties. This area of Costa Rica would be fun to explore, we just didn't have the time. The higher elevation (4500 ft) where coffee is grown is cool, and there are alot of small towns to explore. I can't remember our guide's name but he was very patient with questions, very informative, and a friendly person, like all the Costa Ricans we came into contact with. The plantation grounds are beautiful, which we could have spent more of our day there. Highly recommended.

Nice tour of a historic coffee factory. There are many to choose from. Would suggest it as part of a combo package with other things in the area. Do not drive there, secure transportation. First water powered plant in the country.

me and my mother went to the doka estate for a coffee tour and had the best time. we were given a tour by a gentleman who spoke amazing english and only toured us two! before being toured we were given a small explanation of our day and shown where to sit and wait and sip on complimentary coffee. the tour was so fun and informative and he could answer every question we had even ones not related to coffee! the grounds also had a beautiful butterfly garden that was amazing and a beautiful view of their coffee plantation. amazing experience even out of season!

Great introduction and review to Costa Rican coffee. We only did the tour and found our guide to be professional, intelligent, and friendly; from beam to roasted bean, all steps were covered ending with some brew to drink at the end. Higher elevation, strong sun, beautiful landscape.

While on a tour of Costa Rica we stopped at the Doka Estate for a Coffee tour. It was very educational seeing the process from picking the beans, processing them, drying them out and making coffee. Even though I dislike coffee I did enjoy the chocolate covered coffee beans.
