CHOCOLATE & COFFEE TOUR
- Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Quepos, Provincia de Puntarenas
- Product code: PTBVJW
We offer a combination of attractions! Firstly, the chocolate tour starts with the cultural and biological background of cacao in the world and here in Costa Rica. It further introduces you to the collecting, fermenting, grinding, and finally making of chocolate, the drink of the gods.
Secondly, we talk about coffee and its importance for Costa Rica’s economic and cultural development. We have a showroom with important coffee-picking instruments and real coffee-producing plants to better explain the process of coffee production. We will show you how to make Café-Chorreado, the real Costa Rican practice of preparing coffee.
Finally, we will look at one of the most important aspects of Costa Rican culture and tradition, the trapiche, a sugar cane mill run by two beautiful oxen (Fast & Furious). Here we grind sugar cane to extract the juice and make all types of local and delicious candy (Dulce, Sobado, Espumas, and Miel) you can try. This is definitely the sweetest tour in the area.
