Trapiche Sugar Cane , coffee & Chocolate tour    
 

El Trapiche tour, is owned by a costarican family, which offers a guided tour of about 2hours. It begins with a tour around the farm which may have an opportunity to observe the different plantations located therein, besides crossing a small patch of forest where occasionally wildlife can be found. During the tour of the farm there is a small tilapia pond, plantations of bananas, plantains, arracache, macadamia, oranges, sugar cane and coffee In the span of the walk around the farm, we explain the process involved in sugarcane cultivation, natural history and also the opportunity to taste the sugar cane and its derivatives. Finished this interval will display the coffee process, which starts showing from planting and continues with the process of crushing, peeling and roasting by our machinery. To finish the tour of the plantation, you’re invited to make a short trip in a oxen cart(not obligatory), it starts from sugar cane plantation and finishes at the building where the cocoa process is shown. There are step by step through the process of cocoa from different stages: starting with a brief explanation of how the tree develops, pollination of it, how to get the fruit, seed fermentation, drying, roasting and grinding cocoa and in addition brief explanation of how to obtain tasting chocolate. Right after finishing the cocoa process, it will show the “guaro“ process (cane liquor). Next thing on schedule is the demonstration of the different types of the typical trapiches¬† (sugar cane mills) there are three Tour description types in the farm, a manual one, an oxen mill and a water mill. You will see all of them running! The tour culminates at the place where artisanal sugar cane candy is done.
