Welcome to Caribeans Coffee Shop and Organic Chocolate Factory. We are located in the tropical paradise of the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. Our coffee is grown high in the mountains where liquid sunshine and cool breezes develop the best flavors in the bean. We fresh roast daily and serve our coffee, chocolate and fresh fruit smoothies here in the beach location of Puerto Viejo de Talamanca.
Caribeans is much more than a great coffee shop! We also make our own organic chocolate from the locally grown cacao beans. Stop in to taste our world class organic chocolate for free. You can also go deeper and take our Chocolate Forest Experience Tour to connect with the roots of chocolate and become a true chocolate connoisseur! Not able to travel to Costa Rica? You can still enjoy our chocolate at home! Order online here.

Zumba/Pilates classes get your rhythm going. Life coaching and cultural workshops by David Magic Hands offer a chance to connect with the tribe. DocHeads Movie Night stimulates our intellectual connections. And First Monday’s Spoken Word meetings give us a chance to share our poems and stories where people will actually listen.
Our coffee shop offers all day long chocolate tasting, gourmet coffee and chocolate drinks, the best smoothies with only natural fresh fruit. Chocolate truffles and pastries. Light breakfast options include homemade granola with fruit and yogurt. Lunch options include sandwiches with fresh flavors such as curry goat cheese and fresh basil. Need a stack or an energy bump?

“By far the BEST tour of its kind I’ve ever been on. His knowledge and passion for the trade is matched by his enthusiasm and for all things cacao. For $28 you get more than just the history of cacao, you get to walk the beautiful property, understand the history of coffee around the world and in Costa Rica, hear his story of how he came to be a novice, taste the chocolate they make onsite and pair chocolate with other herbs and spices. Thank you for the bottom of our hearts. Please keep doing what and how you do for others. I will never look at chocolate again and sorry Hershey’s time to move from chocolate candy to the grown up good for you real stuff!”
Delicious handmade organic chocolate and iced mocha coffee to die for! Friendly staff, great service, check this place out!
We had a free afternoon in Cocles so wandered down to Caribeans…so very glad we did! Not only was the tour wonderful and the chocolate AMAZING, we also enjoyed Paul and Jean very much – their passion is inspiring! We saw lots of wildlife along the way too.
You will be blown away by the chocolate tasting…the most incredible chocolate ever, made even more perfect by the view – this tour is a MUST!!! Our kids (11 & 9) also loved the tour.
We’ve got a nice supply to take back to Canada too;)
Thanks Paul and Jeanne!

It was awesome to hang out with Paul during a tour of the farm and a delicious tasting with Jeanne! The tour is very informative and interactive! Highly highly recommend a tour with them!
Caribeans has a super unique history with very passionate owners who have created a unique thing for themselves and the chocolate community in Costa Rica! Visit here for coffee, chocolate, delicious muffins and amazing energy!
Impressive is the only word I can use to describe the Maracuya ice cream! It is not one of my favorite fruits, but this ice cream mixture of maracuyá and chocolate is simply amazing! It leaves you with and exquisite mouth taste. A bohemian ambience, informal but nice and comfortable. You can also purchase a variety of handmade organic chocolates you don´t want to miss. The black coffee is good too. Closed on Sundays. Medium range prices. Highly recommended!
If you are looking for your favorite coffee shop in the world, Caribeans may just be the place! For us a coffee shop is a home away from home. For many Caribeans is a remote office and our wifi is one of the faster connections in the area.
Too rainy for a beach day? Caribeans is one of the best rainy day activities. Connect with home. Do some writing. Taste one of our sipping chocolates. Join a chocolate tour. Take a yoga class.

Hot and thirsty? We have the best smoothies on the beach. No artificial ingredients or pre-mixes. Fresh fruit, ice and clean water is all you need. Try the probiotic ginger ale. It is amazing and super good for the gut!
