Down to Earth – Started by Mother Nature, finished by hand

Walking around the village
A year ago my wife and I spent a week at the Down to Earth Coffee Plantation in Dota/Costa Rica. While I have been trained to roast green coffee beans I had no idea how coffee was grown or harvested.

We learned about everything from planting seeds to transplanting, picking, processing, drying and milling (removing the parchment).

This is an opportunity to experience Costa Rica. We lived in the local village of 300 people 45 minutes by 4×4 from the paved road.
