The Trapiche Tour is located approximately four kilometers from Santa Elena and is a project of a Costa Rican family. This tour takes place on the farm where you can see the sugar cane plantations, coffee, and other crops such as bananas, plantains, arracache, and oranges. During the tour, the entire coffee process is shown, such as crushing, drying, peeling, and roasting. After this process, a typical cart with oxen will guide you to the "Trapiche" where you can see the "saca de guaro" or cane liquer and the sugarcane process that begins with grinding and ends when brown sugar is obtained. During the development of this tour, you will have the opportunity to taste the different derivatives of sugar cane and a delicious cup of fresh coffee.
