Coffea arabica is a great plant for the living room kitchen (next to your coffee machine, obviously!). It in a light spot and can cope with direct sunlight, but you need to acclimatise it gradually. Once it’s accustomed to sunlight, you can also place the coffee plant in the sun on the patio in the summer.
Water it regularly. You can check whether the soil is still sufficiently damp by sticking your finger in the pot.
Give it a mist of water or shower it when watering to give the leaves a little drink too.
According to legend monks in Ethiopia noticed their goats were a little 'on edge. After some detective work the owners discovered that the animals had been grazing on the coffee bushes.
The monks wanted to give it a go for them selves, so ground up some beans and placed them in boiling water. The taste and the aroma were amazing ... Kahveh - which means ‘stimulating’ - was born.
Not pet safe.
Delivered in 9cm plastic nursery pot.
