¿Are you a coffee lover?
This tour is for you!
Situated at a perfect elevation for coffee growing and a world away from the hustle and bustle of San Jose, the capital city of Costa Rica, Finca Rosa Blanca offers an in-depth tour of the coffee farm, the processing plant, and the roasting house.
Enthusiastic guides will share their extensive knowledge on how organic coffee is grown, cared for, harvested, processed and roasted to produce some of the world’s best coffee beans. You will learn about coffee through the ages, Costa Rican Coffee history and you will become skilled at discerning the fine quality of the freshly roasted Finca Rosa Blanca coffee at a “c” or cupping session. Hiking the lush tree-shaded coffee fields you will discover how coffee is grown and harvested. The next stop is the farm’s processing mill, or “beneficio’, where the bean is separated from the fruit and naturally sun-dried before being roasted and prepared for enjoyment. With the farm’s own on-site roaster, Finca Rosa Blanca is considered an estate coffee, where every step of the growing, processing and roasting is done on the plantation. We will explore the other sustainable crops produced on the farm including banana, plantain, orange, mango, water apples, loquats, guava, and lime. Our organic waste and coffee pulp is used to produce organic fertilizers for the farm, the orchards and organic gardens at Finca Rosa Blanca. Learn how the experts discern and rate gourmet coffee by participating in a “coffee cupping” (catación) session with our knowledgeable Coffee Tour Guide. Sit out on the spacious deck and enjoy the views of the volcanoes above and coffee fields below while experiencing a real coffee cupping and learning more about the benefits to the environment and the community of an organic sustainable coffee farm.
