      Coffee berries on the one and only tree I have in the garden. I haven't quite mastered the art of roasting, but it is more the process of growing rather than the end cuppa.

      Before the coffee cherries, the highly jasmine scented white 5 petaled flowers appear, After three to four days, the flowers drop to the ground, enabling new green beans to emerge from the same bud on the branch of the coffee shrub.

      A former neighbor of mine had kept up with a coffee bush and I was amazed at how fragrant its blossom was. ๐Ÿ‘ he had since gone on to purchase a whole coffee farm on the big island... talk about being a coffee lover, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

      Wow for some reason I never considered growing coffee in my garden! Brilliant.

      What type of coffee are you growing? What are the requirements to maintain a healthy tree?

      I've heard that some farms are starting to grow coffee here in California where I live. It surprised me a bit because I didn't think we had the right climate. Maybe we do?

      The thought of roasting my own coffee never entered my mind until I watched this video:

      I will get back to you with the finer details, but thank you for acknowledging my post.

      I'm not sure of my variety it was an inherited plant from my Mum and Dad's garden , so it has a lot of sentimental value. The fact it has survived and thriving is a bonus.

      Like your area small bouquet farms are being established here also. (Gold Coast Queensland Australia) I have planted a few seeds in different areas of my garden to see what and where they grow best. Would mind have a backyard coffee farm. Home made coffee and cake sounds pretty good to me โ˜•๐Ÿฐ

      Hi DR you're right! a coffee devotee indeed.

      I'm trying to grow a few more, but they take a while till they produce a crop, and like my cooking I'm impatient . The flower scent is really strong but pleasant for the short time they are present. Thanks for dropping by for coffee and cake . ๐Ÿ‘‹โ˜•๐Ÿฐ
