Located along the fertile slopes of the Póas Valley, Doka Estate has been growing and roasting award-winning coffee for more than 100 years. The farm uses the same century-old water mill imported from England to power their processing plant – a rustic building recently designated a historical and architectural heritage site by the Costa Rican government. From the seed to the cup, you’ll learn everything you need to know about how coffee is grown and made.
The tour’s highlight is the coffee tasting. Doka Estate produces eight coffee blends – Peaberry Estate, French Roast, European Roast, Espresso Roast, House Blend, Breakfast Blend, Decaf, and Organic – ranging from smooth to bold. The tour is approximately 1.5 hours. You may want to spend a little more time at Doka and wander through the butterfly garden or just walk through the property and enjoy the natural beauty and comfortable climate of the Poas area.
As one visitor has recently noted… “Adriana did an amazing job at teaching us about coffee and all the processes at the estate! Afterwards we wondered around the estate marveling at all the gigantic hydrangeas and the rainbow eucalyptus trees! This was truly a wonderful last day of our Costa Rica Holiday!”…
Doka estate is 12 km from Hotel Villa San Ignacio. Allow 25 to 30 minutes for the drive on paved road toward Poas Volcano.
