the place was closed
May 2021 • Couples
The host/guide didn't show up, the place was closed, even though we booked the visit and paid in advance. We couldn't reach out to him, he didn't answer the calls even though he was very responsive when we were booking the visit (he changed the date of the visit three times...). So we didn't see the place, buy we got our money back via TripAdvisor. We haven't received any email with information or explanation what happened until now.

Nice experience in beautiful scenery
Dec 2019 • Friends
We took a day off the beach and visited secluded Agaete valley to check the coffee plantation in Agaete. It was a lovely experience. Short walk through some coffee tree area, seeing different local fruit and other plants, meeting chicken which live on the property.

Walking up you can see oranges, mango, avocado, figues... all in natural habitat. If it is raining or after rain which is not very frequent you can ask for plastic poncho :-)

The tour ends in the sheltered seating area, where owners of the facility will explain every detail of small family coffee production company and also entertain you with description of details of steps of coffee production, while you sip on the cup of their yummy rare coffee and bite on delicious home made pastries. You will get to try manual coffee bean roasting as well. Of course there is some small shopping of local products possible, the roasted almonds are addictive. :-) cards are accepted :-)

Both owners are very friendly and nice :-) parking on the premises free of charge. Highly recommend :-)

Small group visit of a coffee plantation
Oct 2019
We found the place in a FB-group, contacted them on FB and booked an appointment there. There are 2 plantations next to each other, make sure you go to the right one. ;) A local guy was our tour guide, he was really nice and answered every question of ours. The tour was not a big one (in terms of territory) but we had the chance to try what a fresh coffee bean tastes like, to see many tropical plants and the guy explained us the process of making coffee out of the beans. His english was sometimes hard to understand BUT he was really helpful and tried to explain the things in more ways if we did not understand something at first. All in all, I would recommend this tour for those who are really into coffee and can appreciate the work of these people. In the end, we could try even a "coffee jam", which is amazing! Luckily it's for sale so we made a storage for ourselves. :D It's a very good opportunity to do something else than visiting the usual touristic places. It's a very good value for money activity.

The Host Santiago is superlovely and takes a lot of effort to teach you anything you need to know about coffee and all the other plants growing on his farm! (Avocado, Banana, Khakis and so on..)
It‘s essential to visit that place when you‘re around!
And the Coffee and sweets are awesome!
Supergood Value as well!

Coffee growing on Gran Canaria - who knew!
Oct 2019
We visited this Finca as part of a tour from a cruise ship. Extremely interesting to hear the history of the Finca and to see the variety of fruits grown here: bananas, papayas, oranges, even a guava as well as the coffee. The situation is spectacular. It is difficult to get to although I believe they do cater for cars as well as buses. It was in great danger during the devastating fires of 2019 but fortunately they were not affected. Well worth the trip.

Interesting tour of an organic coffee plantation including coffee and local biscuit
Sep 2019 • Family
We were able to do a 30min walk from our Airbnb to this small plantation. The set up is all very informal but with a very enthusiastic owner taking the tours. We turned up, rang the goat bell above some drying coffee beans near the entrance and followed the pointers down a path to a little open sided shelter which is the Cafe Platinum (you can just have coffee and biscuits without the tour). We had a choice of coffee and biscuits before or after our tour, and decided to do the 10min walk in the plantation first. We learned a lot about growing, picking and producing coffee and also saw the other crops (about 10 different fruits) then had the coffee (very good) and biscuits (also very good) plus taster samples of wines made from mango, banana and prickly pear. Glad we did this tour, and even our two non-alcohol, non-coffee drinking daughters really enjoyed the experience but probably best for coffee fans

This is a great place for a half day trip from Ingles/Maspalomas. Last few kilometers are bit narrow streets, however you see the valley. The farmer was very nice, explained and showed all about coffee and process with tasting included. You can buy coffee, bit pricy but no going back without it. Well worth a visit!

We have enjoyed the tour in Los Castanos
For myself , an addict of coffee , it was really interesting to see the process of coffee.

We tasted raw coffee beans , espresso made by Antonio the owner of the farm.

Tour took like 30 min .. and we saw also mango, papaya , bananas.

The road is very smooth and the landscape is amazing , if you have the chance to take the tour , do so!

You can also buy local products of farm incld coffee and marmalade.

We stumbled upon this small, family-run, coffee plantation when searching for Finca La Lafa (which is just 100 metres further up the road).

We first had a taste of the coffee they grow along with a home-made biscuit and freshly squeezed orange juice for the children.

There was then a brief explanation about the growing cycle of the coffee bean and next we saw some beans being roasted. Finally, we strolled through the organic coffee plantation and we’re given information about how the plants are cared for and the harvest collected.

The entrance charge is €10 per adult, €5 for children (under 5’s are free). They have a small car park and toilets. The ground coffee is €25 for a 250g bag if you wish to purchase some.

A pleasant way to spend an hour, although a little expensive for what it is.

If you avoid the turning to San Pedro and carry on up the mountain you will be treated to some magnificent scenery and stunning views. NB the mountain road eventually reaches a dead end.
