On my recent visit to Costa Rica, I had two different coffee plantation tours - one from a large property and one from a smaller property. The tour itself was interesting and informative and they included a coffee tasting where you learn to identify different "notes" and how to determine good from bad. That got me to thinking about proposing that a small portion of the land be put aside to the cultivation of the coffee plant for the distillation of its essential oil. Maybe they could include a second tour that explains how the plant is grown, the distillation process and the variety of essential oil products that could be sold. Since I specifically went there to check out Costa Rica as a possible retirement destination, that might be a nice way to make a small stipend. I'll be thinking about that one in the next few weeks for sure. In the meantime, I guess the next step would be a distillation class.
