Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came here a part of a tour from our cruise ship. It was a rainy day so it wasn't looking its best and people didn't want to spend long outside listening to explanations of how the coffee is grown. There was wine and cheese tasting in a utilitarian building, and we felt this was primarily a sales opportunity.

The plantation is in a fantastic setting nestled between the hills and mountains with gorgeous views. The journey in, takes you through some stunning scenery and quaint little villages.
Once there you are met by the owner, a very passionate man who knows all there is to know about the production of coffee and guides the tour with such pride as he shows you around the farm pointing out all of the other crops grown. (I won't spoil the surprise as to what these are!)
You sample the coffee at the end of the tour and get a chance to buy bags for €10.
Cannot recommend this tour enough, it is definitely worth the trip.

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.

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 :-)

Good visit. Plenty of enthusiasm information during visit. Good strong tasting coffee. Well worth visiting seeing the beans.

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!

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.

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
