Rosbi was a great tour guide! He taught us about the history and life cycle of making chocolate and coffee in Costa Rica which was very informative. We got to create our own chocolate flavor using various ingredients with North Fields Chocolate as the base, as well as try both medium and dark roast coffees were delicious. This was our last event we attended in Costa Rica before heading home and it was a great way to end the trip.

If I could give this place a 1000/1 I would. Our experience here was impeccable! David did an amazing job in walking us through the chocolate and cafe fields. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. Going above and beyond necessary. The coffee and chocolate was also extraordinary! After the morning with David we spent some time in their gift shop that allowed us to buy for all of our family members back home. Well worth it!!!!! Couldn’t thank them enough ♥️

Our tour guide Russ was fantastic! He was very knowledgeable and clearly loves his job. The farm was fun to tour and learn about the start to finish process of cacao and coffee making. The samples were delicious and generous. They have a great souvenir shop with products made by locals, they had something for everyone on my list. Definitely recommend this tour!

This tour was the best I've been on. Alberto (Beto) was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. This tour was more hands on and in-depth than I've experienced with us actually walking through the gardens with the coffee and cocoa plants, holding/tasting the fruit and then going back to see the rest of the process. I learned about marketing tactics from coffee companies and what to look for. The chocolate and coffee were, of course, very high quality. Everyone was very welcoming and kind and nothing was rushed. This tour is well worth the money. One day I hope they can sell their products internationally.

Rainy day, warm and tasty coffee and cocoa :)

We had a super rainy but wonderful day at the north fields plantation with David as our guide. David was super informative and was very interested in our experience at the plantation. We learned pretty much everything about coffee and cocoa from the plant over the fermentation or roasting to the actual product. We were able to get a taste of different stages of the processes which was very nice in deed. On the plantation David also showed us some costa rican wild life with an red eyed tree frog on top. I really appreciated about him was, that he didn't wake up the frog because they are mostly nocturnal and resting within the day. Overall we had a really nice and informative trip to the coffe fields and we would love to come back again. Thank you so much David.

Best Tour Ever

Probably one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our tour guide, David, was incredible! We learned so much about coffee, cocoa, and sugar cane. Not only that, he showed us other plants and found a red eyed frog and a viper for us to see. And at the end we got to have as much coffee and chocolate as we wanted as we learned how it was produced, roasted, and processed.

Amazing experience with a great guide. We got picked up from our resort which wasn’t far from the location and heard from the experts about coffee and cacao. It was a small group of us so it was very intimate and wasn’t rushed at all. I enjoyed every moment of learning the history, culture and it was overall very fun. I would revisit this place 100%.

The tour was amazing! We were not only able to know more about the processes of coffee and chocolate but also to see a lot of nature. Two points that we really appreciated is the fact that it was a small group, so more intimate, and the quality of our guide David, super good at explaining and funny! :) We could enjoy some tasting at the end which was of course our favorite part! 100% recommended!
