What you will visit:

Grano de Oro (Golden Bean)
A nearly century-old coffee mill, Grano de Oro, or Golden Bean, is nestled in a picturesque valley, surrounded by lush rainforests and rolling mountains. A tour of the estate is an opportunity to learn the techniques for growing this valuable commodity. Begin with a harvesting demonstration on how Costa Ricans pick the ripe fruit, called "cherries", following a centuries-old technique to ensure the best quality. The milling process follows, and the cherries are sorted, peeled, fermented and sun dried. After roasting, you'll enjoy the finished product: a freshly brewed cup of Costa Rican coffee.

What you will see along the way:
Gaze out the window of your air-conditioned motorcoach on a two-hour narrated drive along one of the most picturesque highways in Costa Rica, enjoying the colorful vistas of quaint villages, fertile plantations and ever-changing landscapes along the way.

Shopping:
Both the coffee mill and the hotel have gift boutiques, the perfect place to shop for a memento of the day.

Special Notes:

Light clothes and comfortable shoes are recommended. There are a few stairs to descend at the coffee mill. The coffee mill and the hotel each have gift shops.
