Ask for Geisha Coffee; Tour Half of Price in Boquete

Janson Coffee Plantation ( www.estatecafe.com, 771-4306) is located off the southwestern slope of Volcan Baru. The 30-min tour was a simple walk through the facility. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see much coffee being processed and roasted because we went in the off-season when the coffee bean is still too green for picking (high season is from November to April). The tour costs $10.70 in high season (50% off in low season). Note: in Boquete, coffee tours are between $25-35! It includes complimentary coffee at the Janson coffee house, which has a beautiful view of Volcan Baru. The Boquete region is known for its Geisha coffee, which recently broke auction records when it sold for $170/lb online. Ask for Geisha coffee! Hours are from 9am-3:30pm.
