Don Juan Cruz was born to one of the first pioneering families to settle in the Monteverde area. His small farm has now become a center for visitors interested in the process of making a great cup of coffee.

Chocolate is another of the traditional crops grown in Costa Rica, and while at Don Juan’s farm you will get an insight into the traditional methods that our ancestors used to roast the seeds, separate the husks and finally grind the beans. Participate in the chocolate making process and have the opportunity to taste the fruit of the cacao pod and observe how the small cocoa beans are carefully converted into a rich tasting chocolate drink.

After learning about growing and processing coffee and chocolate, you will have plenty of opportunities to sample the end result.
