Well-planned and tasty experience! Highly recommended!

Our experience with the Coffee and Chocolate tour was amazing! We were picked up on time from our resort around 9:30am. We were then taken to the farm. There we were split into English and Spanish tours. There were plenty of COVID safety guidelines, but nothing out of the norm. We started the walking tour of the farm, where our guide explained chocolate crafting first, then we were taught about coffee crafting and last sugar cane crafting. In our walking tour we found multiple frogs and birds - including a toucan! Our guide then taught us the process of coffee roasting and alongside the owner showed us the process of light, medium, and dark roast. We then had a demonstration of chocolate mixtures and chocolate tea - which we had never tasted, but fell in love with! Lastly we had a demo of sugar cane water and liquor. We spent some time at the gift shop where we purchased chocolate and coffee samples. We were dropped off at our hotel by 2pm. The experience was unique, well-executed, and with delicious food! Highly recommended!

The Arenal region is not the hub of good coffee in Costa Rica (I learned that on the tour), so the tour was informative, but the coffee tasting was from somewhere else - so not truly authentic

We had a fabulous time with David as our guide. David was very knowledgeable, informative and funny. It was a rainy day and we drove 2.5 hours to be part of the tour, when we left, we left with more knowledge about coffee, sugar canes and chocolate then when we arrived. We were treated extremely well by all those who served us. Appreciated the tasting and time spent on learning about chocolate, chocolate tea, coffee and sugar canes. Even though it was raining we had rain ponchos and they supplied umbrellas. David was a fantastic guide and ensured that everything he spoke about was clear and understood by all; especially for those with hearing impairments. We'd recommend this tour to all chocolate and coffee lovers..

Coffee, chocolate and sugarcane.. oh my!

Jorge picked us up from our hotel and he was so friendly and informative! We had a good conversation along the way until we reached North Fields Cafe. We were then greeted by Alberto, our tour guide for the tour. Alberto was so efficient, kind, and so so knowledgeable on all things coffee, chocolate, and even sugarcane! We learned so much about the entire processes from beginning to end and now I have a better appreciation for all of the above. He answered any questions we had and explained to us about botany as well. When we were doing the chocolate and coffee tastings, to our surprise, Jorge was helping with all and we were happy to see him again too! We really thoroughly enjoyed this tour and everyone we interacted with here was super kind and super helpful. We are so happy we did this tour and we will be sure to recommend it to anyone we know that is traveling here!

Our guide Rafel. He made everything memorable. This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. I learned so much and he made it extremely interesting. I loved the tastings of both the chocolate and coffee and the homemade bread was special

I am a chocolate lover and an occasional coffee drinker. This tour exceeded my expectations and was very informative. Our guide Beto was very cool and knowledgeable. Loved that we got to learn all about how chocolate is made and try different chocolate, same with coffee. Highly recommend and it’s a small family business :)
