    for a few bucks you can enter the plantation, enjoy the coffee beans in flower or half ripe and also taste one (they say they can have bad effect on your intestine if you eat too many ;-)...) and of course you can visit the well stocked shop and you can as well sit at the café where I got my café glacé for free as they had finished the cream and the ice cream wasn't of the right flavour... but to follow the guided tour (bilingual spanish-english), it costs you 20 US $... ops!!!

    the three people guiding you around and explaining to you all secrets and history of coffee from the very beginning play as comic characters and their sketches turn into a real performance (bilingual spanish-english) of about one hour and half... well partly I was resigned of their typical irony but I must admit they have talent...

    Barva and the Café Britt are only 2.5 km from Heredia, provided you don't miss the little sign indicating you where to turn (right if you come from Heredia - left if you come from Poás volcano)...

    definitely in this place they can teach marketing to the most expert ;-)... and the tour ends in the shop where you can find lots of stuff made of coffee: pads and stationery (they are made of coffee leaves), liquors, snacks, coffee of course in any form and package, local coffee machines and souvenirs of any kind, which however you can also find around Costa Rica: even if not everywhere, things made of coffee are a must product of the country...
    note: they also sell through internet
