What To Expect

First we will go to Doka Coffee Estate, where we will have a coffee tour in an actual coffee plantation where we will learn the ancient techniques used by the experts to produce some of the best coffee in Costa Rica and around the world.

The careful process involved in the cultivation, harvesting and roasting of the Golden Bean will then be illustrated, very hands-on, and then we will savor the delectable product. After the coffee tour we will enjoy a Costa Rican lunch buffet.

2 hours • Admission Ticket Included

Parque Central De Grecia
We will continue to Grecia, a very typical and traditional town, where we will admire the metal church, a building that has a rare architecture, with high ceilings, ornate stained glass windows, and classical lines.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Fabrica de Carretas Eloy Alfaro
Next we will visit the town of Sarchi, known as the birthplace of Costa Rica’s Artisans. In Sarchi, you will be able to appreciate many of the art crafts and souvenirs that Costa Rica has to offer, as we visit a factory and souvenir shop managed by the local artists. Also you will see the world’s largest ox cart according to the Guinness Book.

The cart is 2 stories high, nearly 45 feet long (14 meters) and weighs 4400 lbs. (2 tons), and took 70 days to complete. Made out of wood (cedar) and decorated with bright colors, designed based on our typical and traditional oxcarts.

If you are looking for a “budget friendly tour” and have a short time to spend in Costa Rica, then you should take this tour.
Don Ricardo was very kind, patient, and fun, besides he is a great driver.
I enjoy shopping souvenirs in Sarchi, as well as spending time in the butterfly garden at Doka coffee farm. The grounds in the coffee farm are lovely!
Excellent tour

The tour was informative and enjoyable. Our guide, Eduardo Castro was very knowledgeable and professional. The Doka Coffee Tour was excellent, we got a complete tour of the coffee process, from the time the bean is placed in the ground to the time is package. Recommend this tour if you are interested in coffee.
The tour in Sarchi was interesting, we went to where the carts are painted, from the
carts that are sold in the stores to the carts that are seen throughout Costa Rica. Also, good deals in their store.
We stopped in Grecia and saw a church completely built in metal, something I have
never seen in any of my previous trips to many countries.
Highly recommend this tour.
Informative tour, fun!

Had no idea as to how complex it is to pick coffee and convert from the "cherry" to the finished coffee we see in the stores. Andrea, the guide at Doka Coffee, was tremendous! Very much "jn the know" and very people oriented. Our Driver, Eduardo, navigated the traffic and back roads perfectly. A great way to spend 1/2 a day in the San Jose area
Fabulous day, thank you to our guide Miza, a true professional and knowledgeable man.

This was a lovely day, the tour was very well planned. Sarchi seems a little touristy but the history in the ox cart making is good. The coffee tour at Dora was great, gorgeous countryside. We are lucky to be here during harvesting.
Our guide, Miza, was knowledgeable and professional. Congratulations on your upcoming retirement.
One word of advice, if you have not received a confirmation of when you will be picked up at your hotel, ask your hotel to call them. Make certain you have printed your voucher. Our desk clerk had to make several calls to confirm we were really on the schedule.
