Worth a Trip: Canarian Coffee

A pretty, reasonably straight drive takes you from the town of Agaete 6km into the fertile valley of the same name, where you can seek out one of several coffee plantations. Finca La Laja cultivates tropical fruit and grapes alongside the beans and a tour includes wine tastings and a cup of the fine, rich coffee. High above the valley, the Tamadaba pine forest is also a prime hiking area.
