Description

The perfect housewarming present for the coffee lover in your life! This is actually one of the tree varieties grown for their deliciously caffeinated beans, and with enough patience and proper care yours will produce them too! We recommend keeping an eye on it and pruning to manage growth as they can get quite tall. However, provided with bright indirect light and enough water to keep the soil evenly moist at all times you’ll soon start to see the small white flowers that precede the berries that mature into what coffee farmers harvest!
