Stopped in while walking around town. Cool store but the iced coffee was just so so. Would return for the nick knacks but not coffee.
Amazing little souvenir shop on the main drag in Jaco! Lots of items that you cant find in other souvenir stores. The other stores I visited seemed like they all carried the same things? Staff was friendly and conversational - knew a lot about local artists and had interesting stories to tell about each piece. Enjoyed a refreshing iced coffee... More
If you want a GREAT cup of joe while in Jaco, don't walk, run to The Costa Rica Coffee Experience. Not to mention, if you want original art or non-standard souvenirs , this is the place to go. All the other shops in town sell the same stuff. Go look in one,... and then come get some monkey poop!
We must have gone at the wrong time because we didn't experience anything like most of these reviews! There was no coffee tasting. We asked if they had coffee to drink and he said they have hot or iced. He then poured our 2 iced coffees from a dirty looking carafe that had likely been sitting there a long time.... More
Sorry to hear about your experience at our store. From your comment, I don't know if you had asked for a coffee sample or not, but unless we are just opening and the coffee isn't ready yet or we are closing and so don't have any coffee made, we always have samples available. We generally offer to everyone who expresses... More
Like everyone else, when we travel we like to bring back some gifts for family and friends. Jaco, like other tourist destinations has plenty of places to buy souvenirs and gifts - however, The Costa Rica Coffee Experience is probably one of the best stores we visited while in Jaco. It's tiny, but jam packed with carefully curated items. We... More
I was so pleased to find this store in the midst of a bunch of other crappy and unworthwhile souvenier shops. They had so much that I wanted to buy that I had a tough time deciding. A co-worker of mine asked me to bring back some genuine rain forest Costa Rican vanilla extract and this is the only place... More
Like in every place you really need to walk around to run into the really nice places and find the really Nice stuff to bring home for your loved ones. This place has it all and more, from their great customer services provided by Young CR fellow named Greivin to their huge art collections on their sister shop Tico Pot... More
The perfect spot for all your gift needs. Delicious iced coffee, great selection of curated local art, and the most wonderful snacks. I loved their pineapple liquorice, a must try!
Nice little air conditioned shop (across from Mas X Menos) on the main drag in Jaco. They sell some coffees, mugs, a little food, quality T-shirts and lovely pottery by Costa Rican as well as some nice wooden dishes. Much better quality than most of the shops.
The charming owner of this lovely shop is friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and has put together a wonderful selection of strange and lovely items from Costa Rica and Nicaragua. We bought an awesome piece of pewter made by local artists and a beautiful cocobolo wooden bowl. The pieces are great in themselves but we also loved the stories the owner shared... More
