Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a popular destination for the more than beaches, nature, and culinary experiences. It is also one of the world’s biggest coffee exports and a great place to experience real coffee culture. There are several coffee farms you can visit to learn about the coffee production process, and savor local flavors in some of the county’s many charming cafes in the Tarrazu Naranjo regions where coffee production is most famous. You can almost always get a free coffee sample in many of Costa Rica’s gift and souvenir shops where you bring the taste of Costa Rican coffee home!


Columbia is known for producing some of the best coffee in the world, and there are several great coffee experiences including tastings where you can participate in cupping sessions at farms and shops where you can taste varieties of beans and learn to discern the different flavors and notes in each cup. Columbia is also unique for its UNESCO World-Herritage-Listed Coffee Cultural Landscape, where you can visit coffee museums, picturesque towns, and coffee experiences.
