TravelPod Member ReviewsGran Hotel Nacional David
The hotel is quite nice. Our room was great, the pool was very nice. Food was great. Our only issue is that our credit card was charged twice for our stay. I tried to contact the hotel a few times but had no response. Luckily i booked through booking.com and they intervened and managed to get a refund very quickly.

Our tour took 3 hours and we learned a lot.
The golden grains of the coffee fruits are protected by 3 different shells. All of them have to be taken off before the roasting process can start.
Imperfect coffee beans are carefully sorted out. A great deal of the sorting process is done by hand. ...
... all different sizes, which gives the surviving baby turtles a better chance of navigating their way to the surface. Also, about 20 of the eggs will be decoys. This mama laid 75 eggs, and then started to cover them up with her rear flippers again, smoothing and pressing the sand to secure the eggs in there. The whole process, from landing on the beach to leaving it again, takes the turtle about 90 minutes to two hours. To increase her chances of having offspring, the mama will ...
... use a machine to wash the beans and remove the pulp, which is a good idea, since the slimy, gelatin-like shell wouldn't add much flavor to a Peet's grande latte. The cherries are allowed to ferment until the bean is exposed and dried. This method preserves the integrity of the bean and maintains the sweet flavor.
The second method, dry-processing, where cherries are placed in outdoor patios and dried by the sun, produces earthy-flavored beans. Coffee farmers rake ...
