Your tour will begin with a guided walk through the trails on the estate, past scenic waterfalls and through a lush tropical forest. This part of the property is categorized as a cloud forest – a humid environment that’s usually foggy, especially toward the canopy. You can go for a zip-line ride through the canopy, thanks to the 13 platforms and 8 cables for zip lining.
After your ride through the trees you’ll tour the coffee plantation. Your tour guide will explain how Costa Rica’s environment makes Britt coffee special. You’ll get to see how a bean gets harvested and then roasted.
All of the coffee aromas will leave you hungry. You can get a perfect cup of coffee at the café, and then visit the café shop where you can buy chocolates and coffee-flavored sweets. Then you can head to the buffet lunch at the on-site Don Próspero restaurant, where you’ll get to try even more local produce.

My family and I had such a wonderful time on this Coffee Adventure Tour! The day started with the zip-line tour through a beautiful forest with very knowledgeable and friendly guides. We felt completely safe while on this adventure and the views were breathtaking! Afterward, we were driven back down to the Cafe Britt location where we sampled some of the best coffees and enjoyed a tour through the property. The guides, who spoke both English and Spanish, were very funny and gave us so much coffee information. Even my kids (ages 11 and 12...not really coffee drinkers) had a blast on the tour and enjoyed sampling coffees and chocolates, all while learning about the history and culture that surrounds the Costa Rican coffee culture. The lunch that was included with our tour was in the Cafe Britt restaurant and the food was delicious! Of course, we finished the day with sampling more coffees and chocolates in the gift shop and purchased some of our favorite items to bring back home. This tour is probably best suited for older children (7 or 8 and up...I don't know how old the children have to be to zip line), and anyone who loves (or even just likes) coffee and chocolate!
