Topic: Coffee tours in Costa Rica? (5 msgs / 104 lines)
1) From: Zara Haimo
I'll be spending a few days in northwestern Costa Rica near the city of Liberia.  Is that near any good coffee farms I should visit?
Also, how easy is it to get decent coffee in Costa Rica?  I assume I won't be able to bring any home roast with me, so I'll be depending on whatever I can find there and hope they don't export all the good beans.

I don't remember getting any tips from anyone on this list, but there are a couple of small coffee roasting places about 15 minutes from the airport on the way to the coast.  One is a place called simply Cafe on the main road (Highway 21) from the airport on the right as you head to the coast - it's a bit off the road in an unpaved parking lot and might be easy to miss.  Their lunch menu looked good and they sell roast beans.  They said they bring their organic roasted coffee in from Cartago Province and sell it within a couple of days, so it shouldn't be stale.  We bought some there on the way from the airport to use in the house we rented and we all liked it.  The second place is a little further down on the same road in a shopping center with a Home Depot type of store called the Do It Center - the coffee roaster is called Sun Burst Coffeehttp://www.sunburstcoffee.com/visit_us.htmand is in a smaller building off to the side.  They roasted on the premises.  We only found it as we were leaving, so I didn't buy anything there, but their lighter roast beans looked and smelled good.

Thanks for the suggestions!   I think I will send Tom from Sweet Maria's a
note.  I'd love to tour one of the plantations that he buys from.
Cheers,

It has been a long time since we were there and can't recall the farms we
visited. It was easy for us to find really good coffee when we were there.
Near the main public market there is a place that carries only coffee. This
was the place where we first tasted home roasted coffee and learned how to
use an air popper to roast.
