Stopped by today on recommendation from a friend, and was vey happy we did. Had some cappuccino, and bought some coffee products. Great coffee and a gracious and very helpful host. A must stop, even if it is of the beaten path.

We came across Matias' place while searching for a coffee tour near Arenal. Since most coffee is grown at higher elevations it was nice to find this place that is an offshoot off his larger property up in the mountains. From reading old reviews it...More

The cold brew was great but that was all that was available. It appears only the owner is able to operate the espresso machine and so no other versions of drinks were obtainable on a Monday.More

Description
We have moved from our downtown Fortuna location to the property where we have our plantation and do the Coffee tour. Come visit, just 2 miles/3 kms away from the old location. To get there simply take 702 out of Fortuna and make a right on Avenue 301 which is the road to the Fortuna Watefall. We will be on your right hand side, immediately before the Rainforest Chocolate Tour site, about 0.5 miles/800 meters from the intersection.
