Doka Estate, Alajuela Reviews

  • Very good experience for me to learn how coffee is grown. The guide explained a lot of details and spoke good English. You get to see how it's grown and finally arrive in your cup. Make sure you bring a long-sleeved shirt around, there are some bugs near the mass of coffee plants and it can be a little chilly sometimes. Oh, and be sure try their coffee. I had some bad experience with straight coffee in the past, but their coffee samples really turned it around for me. Their coffee is amazing and I ended up buying quite a few bags. They make excellent gifts for your coffee-drinking friends.

  • Great attraction! Lots of fun. We learned a lot about the growing and preparation of coffee beans to coffee. Friendly and helpful guides. A butterfly and bonsai gardens. They have a pretty good buffet We were surprised at how tasty many of their items were. And free samples

  • Near the top of a hill this coffee the estate has very beautiful grounds. Most importantly the tour guide Reynaldo did a wonderful job of explaining how coffee is grown, picked and processed. He was very knowledgeable with clever humorous stories. The coffee samples were delicious and the store has very reasonable prices on excellent coffee. We also had a very good lunch there.

  • Got to know the life cycle of coffee. Very informative and got to know about the coffee beans in details. Hide was very knowledgeable. This is one of the few coffee processing plants processing the coffee beans old ways using water.

  • Had a wonderful educational experience learning all about coffee during the tour. The lunch that followed was very good as well. Nice professional staff in a clean professional environment. Don't miss this tour!
