Britt Coffee Tour

The Britt Coffee Tour is the tour that was made for Tourist. Here you will feel as if Disney made a purchase of the coffee industry and turned the coffee tour into a show. It is a bit less authentic than most of your coffee tours and your tour ends in a souvenir shop.

Having to be a fan of theatre I have to say it is actually a good show and very educational. What you actually lack is the sense and feel of being in a large plantation. This tour is located in the populous area of the Central Valley outside the town of Heredia. You only get to experience the feel of being in a small plantation. This is not too bad because Costa Rica was actually known for many different people having small plantations as compared to one large company owning all the land like in bananas.

This is a good option if you want a quick feel for the coffee history and you are near the airport or in the San Jose area and you have a few hours to kill.

Reasons to Go:

  • Convenient location
  • Enjoy shows and theatre
  • Keeps kids attention

Reasons NOT to Go:

  • Very touristy
  • Don't experience a large plantation feel
  • Not into seeing shows
