The Monteverde Coffee Tour is an
educational activity for visitors and allows them to get to
see and understand how local coffee production works.
The participants get to visit some of the
farms, the Mill and end up in the Café Monteverde Coffee
Shop. During the harvest season the visitors also have the
opportunity to participate and collect coffee.
Since the year 2000, Coopesanta Elena has
received tourists interested in an agro-tourist experience,
which has diversified the local tourism opportunities, and
at the same time created new income options for the
cooperative and their producers.
