Tour Transfer to Arenal via Doka Coffee Tour, Grecia and Sarchi
This tour can be combined with Sarchi and Grecia. The main objective of the Coffee Tour is to educate and inform tourists about the process that growing coffee involves. Your tour guides are very knowledgeable of history of the coffee farm, it's owners, it's geographic location, the traditional coffee growing methods, and also the coffee brewing tradition of 'chorrear'. The tour takes you to Almacigo, your first stop, where the process of growing and producing fine coffee is covered from planting the seed to picking the ripened coffee berries. From here you will visit the 'recibidor' (coffee bean receiver) where you will be shown the first classification of the coffee beans as well as the different brands that are processed on the estate. The oldest working water powered mill in the country (beneficio) is the next stop. You will see the peeling machines, how they work and what we do with the coffee bean skins. The fermentation tanks and their importance in the resulting taste of the coffee follows. The bodega is where we store our coffee and where export ready coffee is kept. You will also visit the sun drying patios and the roasting hall where you will see and smell the different roasts we produce. After the Coffee tour you will stop for a typical lunch and continue to Grecia to admire the metal church of the Lady of the Mercy. You will continue to the little town Sarchi, the handcraft capital of Costa Rica. Here you can see the traditional painted oxcarts and this is the best place for souvenirs. You can also enjoy our amazing tour with Private Transportation and Private Tour just for you and your family and friends!
