Coffee, Coffee, Coffee Costa Rica Grows Great Coffee
Coffee prompts social activity, stimulates friendships and conversation, and should never be enjoyed alone. You should always share it with someone.
So if you are traveling to Costa Rica take every opportunity to have a great cup of Costa Rican coffee.
Coffee is the “gold” of Costa Rica. It made many Costa Rican families wealthy and created an elite class whose children are educated in North America and in Europe.
If you visit the central valley around San Jose, Alajuela, Grecia, and the surroundings you will see the green coffee trees with their red berries of coffee which are picked by hand from November through January. The picking is done mostly by Nicaraguans who live on the plantations.

Several very interesting coffee tours are offered in the central valley. Such as the Britt Coffee Tour in Heredia and Three Generations Coffee Tour near Alajuela. You can learn how coffee is grown and how it is processed. I highly recommend one of these tours.
