DON JUAN COFFEE TOUR

TOUR DESCRIPTION
The tour begins with a brief insight into the wonderful world of coffee followed by the history of Costa Rican coffee and its importance in the socio-economic development. Later on during the tour we will cover other aspects of the Costa Rican culture and traditions. The tour starts with an introduction to the life cycle of a coffee plant starting with the coffee seed itself and taking a look at its fascinating evolutionary cycle. You will learn about the ways that the coffee cherries are picked, the lifestyle of the workers that carry out this task, their stories and the immigration that occurs during the harvest season. When the coffee cherries are ready to be picked (from November through to February) this activity can be performed by the visitors. You will get to see the way the pulp of the coffee cherry was traditionally removed, the washing process of the mucilage that is found underneath the pulp and the separation of the first class coffee beans from the rest. The hot and dry climate allows the coffee beans to be spread out on a large, cement patio in order to dry naturally under the sun. In the warehouse the coffee beans are stored in big, fiber sacks allowing the beans to breathe and complete their aging process. The selection of coffee beans, the roasting process and the final packaging of the Don Juan coffee is also carried out here.

In high season, from November to April and July - August, however, check-in time at hotels begins at 2:00 pm. This represents an inconvenience for visitors, since they have no access to their rooms on arrival at their destination. What’s the difference???: We add to the normal travel schedule... On arrival at the Coopeldos R.L. sugar mill, we will place luggage in a secure place under lode and key before beginning our Coffee Tour, an hour and a half experience in which our guide will inform the client about the complete process of coffee production. Then we will walk for about 5 minutes to enjoy Recreational Fishing for “Tilapia” where, with lode, the client will catch his/her lunch while watching a demonstration of the extraction of sugar cane juice from our manually powered sugar mill.
