Private coffee tour “El colibrí” (1 day)

From CHF 178.00

In the beautifully located Naranjo, just north of San José, you will meet our experienced and kind farmer Don Carlos Elizondo and the charming German-speaking tour guide Otto Chavez. Don Carlos will proudly show you his coffee plants and explain to you how he produces the natural fertilizer and pesticides and how he processes his coffee. You can also plant a coffee plant or other shrub or tree yourself! Let’s plant together! After the educational morning, you will be served a typical Costa Rican lunch: Casado! Rice, beans, fried bananas and depending on your preference meat, fish or vegetables. If you are lucky (or ask nicely), Don Carlos will offer you one of his exquisite bananas! Promise, you have never eaten sweeter bananas!

Afterwards you will visit a conventional coffee plantation with Don Carlos in a short and beautiful walk. There you will see how coffee is usually grown: On monocultures and with the use of a lot of chemicals. After Don Carlos’ explanations about the differences between conventional and organic coffee cultivation, you will walk back to Don Carlos’ finca, where the tour ends.
