About Us Founder of the German Bakery in Costa Rica

Betty and Johannes Berie founders of the German Bakery in Costa Rica, German and bakers at heart, with a master’s certificate in bakery, from one of the technical institutes of his country.

We came to Costa Rica in 1993, having been persuaded by all the favorable comments our friends had about this wonderful country. Little by little, Hans started a small bakery business.

The first step in the German Bakery in Costa Rica was to construct our own baker’s oven – an old, tradicional German wood oven. Then we introduced more than 100 varieties of bread to the local dinner tables and foodservice businesses of this country. We specialize in many different black and whole wheat loaves of bread. One of the German Bakery’s important characteristics is that we grind our own grains and flour. This allows us to work with naturally fermented doughs, in the best of the old German tradition, and use freshly ground grain and flour in our recipes which are of longstanding traditionally German heritage.

Hope we see you soon Betty and Hans Berie
