Go for the coffee, stay for the tour and enjoy the show. I am not into touristy kinds of things, but this was fun. Glad we stopped.

The tour was informative. The guide is very knowledgeable.. The Abbott and Costello show dragged a little but did make it entertaining.

Highly entertaining tour on the history and process of getting coffee from seed to roasted bean. Guides were very funny, and put on a good performance. The tour ends with coffee and chocolate tastings. Great way to spend a few hours in San Jose.

It's in Heredia but kind of out of the way, best to use a taxi to go and you can return by bus.
