Would you like to know the best coffee plantation in Costa Rica? Guanacaste is one of the best places to go on vacation if you would like an unforgettable trip in Costa Rica. Whether you go alone, with your family or your couple, you must visit this beautiful region of Central America.
Tío Leo Coffee Plantation is a small establishment located in Guardia de Liberia in Guanacaste province. Since October 2014, a group of friends gathered together to give some ideas of what to do when coffee season came.
Tío Leo offers the highest and best quality coffee because of the process coffee grains go through. Production and harvest happens at an elevation of 4500 ft above sea level on the hills of Volcano Poas.
Coffee grains come from the best of the best of the farm and harvest in Doka Estate. That is the reason why Tío Leo promises the most delicious and fresh product.
If you are a coffee lover, doing Coffee Tour is the perfect tour to make in Guanacaste. You will be welcomed by Tío Leo himself and you will enjoy a hot cup of coffee along with some history of the company.
As said, harvest and production of coffee start in Volcano Poas. In there, climate conditions allow to growth an incomparable quality of fruit, beans and coffee grains.
Those fruits are selected by experts and those beans dried under Costa Rica’s sun. Because of that, Tío Leo’s coffee is full with astonishing aromas and tasty flavor thanks to the roast method in the most traditional way.
The taste of a cup of coffee will depend on the degree which coffee beans are roasted. Before the roasting process, green coffee beans are soft and they have a grassy smell and no taste or just a little bit of it.
The roasting process makes those coffee beans more aromatic, tasty, and crunchy. Does it sound familiar to you? If so, is because we are talking about the coffee you recognize.
Coffee’s taste might differ because of two reasons. One is the country of origin and the second is because they are harvest in different environments. Although roasting coffee process is, somehow, the same, coffee could taste different. Coffee Tour
