The Coffee Plant is fairly easy to keep as a houseplant. Place it in a bright spot, but preferably not in direct sunlight.
Spray your Coffee Plant regularly to prevent the soil from drying out, although very wet soil is not appreciated. Add a small dose of plant food regularly when watering during the summer. In the winter, we recommend spraying the leaves. If possible during the winter, place the Coffee Plant in a cool place and water moderately. The glossy green leaves will remain on the stems. Repot in the spring and water more often.
The Coffee Plant can be placed on your patio or decking during the summer, preferably in a spot in semi shade.
You will perhaps drink the extract of the seeds of this plant every day… Coffea arabica is the provider of our beloved coffee beans and has been cultivated for over 1,000 years. After a few years, your plant may produce real coffee beans. Fragrant white flowers will appear first, followed by the fruits. The coffee beans are in the large red fruits of about 1.5 cm. Those beans are first roasted to make the coffee beans we know and love. A coffee plant is just a lovely plant with attractive shiny leaves.
