ABOUT YOUR ITINERARY

Life is a cup of coffee: it is all about how you make it, and above all, how you drink it.

The Valley

Coffee plantations

The Valley

The Valle de Agaete has an unexpected beauty that surprises our senses. The reliefs and heights of its volcanic walls are the secrets of a microclimate that eases growing subtropical fruits and gave the coffee a perfect place to be raised, more than 120 years ago.

The coffee plantations

The coffee of Agaete is the coffee that grows further north in the world, outside the geographical area that delimits all the producing regions in the world. This coffee plantation is a challenge to nature growing in an impossible geographical place and developing unusual qualities. The coffee trees of Gran Canaria grow just about 150 meters above sea level.

 The hosts and their guests

Getting to know a coffee plantation from the hand of the producer is a unique experience. They will guide you through the plantation and the history and coffee tradition of their family. The pride of each producer grows with their plants and can be felt in this coffee plantation guided tour.

The variety of coffee growing in the beautiful Agaete Valley has exceeded the expectations of experts and those of us who love coffee. That is why coffee is the second most-consumed drink in the world.

Tasting our coffee

The seasons paint this natural scenery of mountains and gigantic cliffs surrounding this grand valley. This landscape and the different seasonal plantations grew next to the coffee trees, will be our companions during the tasting experience.

Meet this local product, 100% from Gran Canaria, through a tasting experience between fresh fruits and trees, witnessing a tour full of scents and genuine flavors.

Perfect relaxing birthday treat – GAIL F.

I would recommend this tour. An excellent day at the coffee plantation and vineyard. Our guide was the brilliant and we were treated like friends. We learnt a lot about the island and had lots of laughs. Would recommend this to anyone who loves coffee and wine.

Did you know that…?

…the coffee of the Agaete Valley is not soaked in water to be cleaned. Instead, the coffee beans are naturally dried under the sunlight laid on special “beds” for a month.

Once dried, the skin and the pulped fruit is removed by the action of a particular machine. In the past, this process was made with coffee mallets, wooden rollers, and coffee filters. Then the roasting process highlights the soft and sweet scents of this variety of coffee, keeping the flavors of the bean in our cup of coffee.
