The Finca La Laja & Bodega Los Berrazales, located in the Agaete Valley, has to be one of the best well-kept secrets on the island of Gran Canaria! A more than 200 year old farm with their own wine, avocado, orange and coffee produce open to the public for a visit.

Short Guided Tour & Wine Tasting

We found the Finca La Laja to be very special! If you should only make one trip during your stay to see something a little bit different on the island, this is one of the top places to go. For a very minimal price you get a short tour of the finca and several samples of their own wines. A hot cup of their own coffee accompanied with local cheeses, jams and seriously delicious cake is part of the tour.

Gran Canaria Coffee Plantation

Did you know that coffee is actually being grown here on the island? And what’s more, the Agaete Valley is the only valley in the whole of Europe that grows coffee, according to our La Laja guide. She also explained the whole process from growing the coffee plant to harvesting the coffee fruit and finally roasting the coffee bean. Very interesting!

Bodega Los Berrazales

The family is producing the award winning wines LOS BERRAZALES. On our tour of the bodega, we were explained how each one of the 5 wines was made. We also noticed, that a very special individual has paid a visit to the bodega. When you get to the wine cellar you will know exactly who we mean!

Our Impressions of Finca La Laja

We arrived onsite in the afternoon just as tour in Spanish was starting. The guide was kind enough to let us join the tour on the spot. The payment was not an issue, that we could do later, she said. We had a few “Wow!” and “Oh, my goodness!” moments as they explained about the vegetation in the stunningly beautiful valley of Agaete. For example, the oldest pine tree of Gran Canaria was growing in the Finca de La Laja.

Products and Prices

All of their wonderful products can only be purchased onsite. There is no pressure to buy anything. As we really enjoyed the cup of home-grown coffee, we bought a bag of 250g of roasted coffee beans for 18€. Not cheap, but we have to say – we love the taste!

At the time of this writing, the guided tour and sampling of wine including a little cheese and other Canarian products costs 8€ per adult, and 4€ per child.

How to get to Finca La Laja – Los Berrazales

The easiest way to get there is by car via Agaete. It takes about 1,5 hours from Maspalomas and about 45min from Las Palmas. There is free onsite parking in several areas of the finca. However, don’t forget someone has to drive and not drink all the wine! There are buses from Las Palmas to Agaete from where you would take a taxi or you could book a private excursion which you can find available online from different locations.

Great, as usual. This is our maybe 10th visit to the place and we love the ecpetience every time. We recommend it to everybody visiting Gran Canaria. A nice place where you can find out more about the coffee plantation and winery, where you can taste local products -3 very good wines, coffee, cheese, chorizo and marmelade for a small price. But the best experience you have is with the people there, both the owners and the people helping them. And if you are nearby, have lunch or dinner at Casa Romantica, now a Michelin recognised restaurant. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Beautiful place, the price for the visit and degustation is more than worth it, one thing though to me the coffee that was poured for degustation had extremely mild taste, like it would be if cut with too much water, would have been nice to have had a very strong, espresso like coffee to really have the flavours, their wines were very good, we took a bottle of dry white wine.I recommend this place!! Must do I guess if you are visiting the island (plus we went with a stroller and no problem at all to go around during the visit)

A destination as part of "A taste of Gran Canaria" tour. Guide's English was very clear. Lovely setting at the end of a valley. Coffee and wine tasting, with small portions of food to help it all down. Chapel built into the hillsde.
What a wonderful place you can taste really good wine , coffee and typical canary dishes. Once you get in the place you get impress with all the authentic decoration and great nature environment. All the staff is great but the Guide Cristian made our visit in this place, he was so friendly and nice to us. Also explained every detail of wine and coffee production my friends and I want to thank him for his good vibes and amazing energy. We totally recommend this place !

An incredible place as there grow mango, avocado, coffee, oranges, mandarines, bananas and many other things just in one place. Highly recommended to visit, but keep in mind that fruits are available to by there only in appropriate seasons. For instance, uou can buy and try mango at end of Summer, or in December. Very nice coffee is also there, which is a local well known arabica!

We arrived at Bodega Los Berrazales in the mid-afternoon with our two-year-old daughter, following a visit to a nearby banana plantation. The road to the plantation was a bit narrow but manageable. Upon arrival at this charming and authentic coffee and orange plantation, we headed to the souvenir shop, planning to purchase our tickets. To our surprise, we were informed that payment would be after the tour and tasting.Our guide, Anna, was truly exceptional. Her kindness, understanding, and genuine love for the plantation shone through. Anna provided a captivating history lesson, explained the coffee-making process, and introduced us to the various plants in the area. The most astonishing part was witnessing butterflies hatching in the wild, which Anna actively assisted by relocating caterpillars to ensure their survival.The tasting session was enjoyable, though the wines didn't quite match my palate. The cheese, however, was delightful. They even generously refilled it when we ran out, thanks to our daughter's love for it with marmalade. The best surprise came when it was time to pay; they didn't charge for my daughter, resulting in a much more reasonable bill than expected. The extra cheese was a lovely bonus.I wholeheartedly recommend visiting this hidden gem, and if you're fortunate, you'll have Anna as your guide.

Very friendly staff. The tour is not very elaborate but please remember that you only pay €12 for the tour and tasting. We also learned something about coffee and the fruits they grow. We enjoyed the apple/coffee marmalade.Our guide Anna was great! She spoke perfect English.

Beautiful place to visit. A short guided Tour with a small degustation in the end for 12 euros - which seemed like a fair price to me. The valley where it's located in, offers a stunning view.Would come here a second time for sure. Wow effect guaranteed.

Place 120% worth visiting. A very unique experience of walking through a huge plantation with an awesome guide with perfect English explaining all details and answering all questions. Everything ends up with wine and local snacks tasting which I cannot recommend more. Finally, one can of course buy some treats and enjoy them later.

In a beautiful setting you find a near perfect bodega beautifully presented. This bodega produces not only wine but it’s own coffee. Apart from this the landscape contains many different fruit trees. The guide presented a very knowledgeable tour not only of the wine and coffee but all the other parts of the finca. We did the tasting tour which was red-white & rose wine and some snacks and coffee. There is also a full restaurant and they have a shop where you can buy their products - we found it somewhat difficult to find and they need some more clarification on directions if you are driving there but there is also an option of a bus tour. The day was somewhat marred by a beautiful tame African grey parrot in a small cage and I would urge the owners to rectify this asap as it detracts from a very memorable visit

I like nature nearby and the story about this place. Coffee is soft and not too bad. I don't like a wine, but people liked white wine. I liked the smell of orange flowers - it was surrounding. You should visit this play just for those tree flowers )

Great place to visit seeing their production of wine, coffee and a number of different fruits. Good guided tour in English with the possibility to taste wine and coffee produced at the estate. As a wine enthusiast I would have appreciated a little more in-depth information on their wine production including cultivation methods, harvesting, fermentation, ageing etc. Nevertheless a great experience.

Most beautiful location one could imagine... sweet little Bodega, in the middle of a green valley surrounded by high mountains to 3 sides, views to the ocean through the valley on the the other side - amazing. Super friendly staff, 8€ for a little tour through the gardens and wine cellar, some explanations around the coffee processing, followed by a wine and coffee tasting including cheese, little breads and some cake. The wines are not the greatest we every tasted, but the whole experience and the friendly people there make it one of the best experiences we had on Gran Canaria - highly recommended!

Overall good experience.Short but informative + interesting tour around wine yard followed by wine-tasting with local cheese. They produce wine and coffee here. Wine itself is rather mediocre, but it's matter of taste - I'm not a fan of muscatel taste. Personnel speaks English and very friendly.

Muy interesante la visita guiada por la finca, donde te explican los diferentes cultivos y sobretodo, el café y el vino. La guía explica muy bien,nosotros pedimos el tour en Inglés y habla bien y claro. La degustación de café y queque con mermelada de café al final, deliciosa.Buena actividad que hacer en la isla! Tambien hay vegetacion interesante y mariposas para observar.Very interesting guided tour of the finca ground, where the tour guide explains the different crops they grow, focusing mostly on coffee and wine. We had our tour in English and she was perfectly fluent and clear. At the end of the tour, theres a small tasting of coffee and cake with coffee marmalade, delicious!Great activity to do in the island! Also lots of nice plants and butterflies to observe.Theres a small fee, i believe it was 10€/p but i didnt pay so im not sure. Apparently weekend are more crowded, we came on Friday at 330pm and were the only ones there for a tour, so we sort of had a private tour!

We just went there for a quick wine tasting. 5 wines in a very relaxed enviroment. We were 4 people in the group, and I was the only one who loved the wines. Very refined, earthy and special natural red wines, not for everyone. The staff was not so attentive, and the wines were sometimes poured up in the same glass. But I still liked the familiar and kind of non-touristic vibes.

Everything was great! Landscape, food, wine, coffee, prices (8€ for a lot of food and a tour). You can start the tour whenever you want. If you have to wait a bit, you can play with the birds, dogs (especially the puppy) or just walk around in this paradise!Thank you for that experience!

Spent a lovely couple of hours here. The site is is rustic and welcoming. Find a member of staff and they will explain a tour is €8 and €4 for kids. The tour took us around the site and showed the coffee plants, other fruits and vines, the wine cellar and the bean shelling and roasting. It's a small site and the tour isn't challenging. Our guide was lovely, interesting and, though she said English wasn't her best language (French, Italian, Spanish) she was easily understood. The tour finished with a tasting of four wines, local cheese and sausage, bread, cake and coffee. Amazing location, well worth a visit.

Lovely, lovely plantation. This place is a hidden gem but still very easy to find. We were greeted by welcoming faces; the tour was interesting and was just long enough to keep our interests. The best part was we didn't feel rushed thru the wine tasting, at all. It was more like a loungey, outdoor cafe feel vs. a tourist attraction. This is a great place to end a drive off the coastal road which is close by.Also helped there were a couple of puppies running around and welcomed a cuddle.

Your Opinion of Finca La Laja

4 reviews

  1. Coffee finca

    This very nice remote finca we visited in March ’21. Back in Berlin the whole family really enjoyed the coffee marmelade we bought there.

    1. Hi Ulrich,
      So glad you liked it! It truly is an amazing place. And glad you brought a bit of Gran Canaria to Germany.
      Hope to see you back in Gran Canaria, soon.

  2. a jewel in Gran Canaries Crown.

    We came across this gem of a farm on a tour from our cruise ship. Agaete is such a beautiful valley, and the farm had grapes, amazing coffee, pomegranates, sweet perfumed guavas, and of course, oranges and satsumas, amongst other delightful offerings. Son of the owner, Victor, accompanied our excellent guide, and handed out freshly picked sun warmed, perfumed guavas…and the food , wine and coffee tasting was a special treat.

  3. A must See before you Leave!!

    Finca La Laja is a little hidden gem in the northern part of Gran Canaria, in a small Village Agaete. You will find very friendly people with a good story and very tastefull wines and coffee. You cannot leave the island before visiting this place.

    Five Stars.

    special thanks to our host Patricia.
