Once a trimester we are all blessed with a field trip, viagra a time to get away with our teachers and spend time without the stress of language learning. This tri the trip was to Cafe Britt, a coffee plantation tour. Coffee is extremely important to Costa Rica. Every day at 3pm it is customary to have a coffee break and the coffee should never be consumed alone. It must always be served with at least crackers or bread.
The time at Cafe Britt was a lot of fun. They walked us through the whole process of how coffee is grown, harvested, fermented, dried, roasted, etc. Here are a few pics from our day out…
Our guides for the day. They are very funny actors who recount history of coffee.
The coffee mill where fermenting and drying takes place. This is also where they bag up the coffee for exporting.
This is the drying process.
