Last week Perfect Sunset School went to Monteverde like every year to see the Coffee and Chocolate Tour. This is one of the best ways you can learn about the authentic coffee plantations and process used by grandparents. The tour takes place in an environment that highlights the best of costa rican culture and tradition that has made this a country of progress and peace.
We learned all the stages, starting with the planting, the harvest, drying, roasting and grinding of the bean, then, we tried a cup of the beverage. This is the beverage we find anywhere and everywhere. Always tasty, always comforting.
The coffee tour finished with a glimpse into the traditional methods of chocolate production from roasting and grinding the cacao beans to the final product we love today. We had the chance to taste some of the chocolate we made at the end of the tour.
This is one of the many educational and interesting tours that we offer that may be added to your itinerary. We make all the arrangements for transportation, guides and anything else that you may need. And this is the way to lern Spanish with us! Learn from the locals. Be part of the culture!
