About coffee

Pruned short for production but able to grow more than 30 feet (9 meters) high, a coffee tree is covered with dark-green, waxy leaves growing opposite each other in pairs. Coffee cherries grow along the tree's branches. It takes nearly a year for a cherry to mature after the flowering of the fragrant, white blossoms.

Because it grows in a continuous cycle, it’s not unusual to see flowers, green fruit and ripe fruit simultaneously on a single tree. The trees can live as long as 20 to 30 years, and are capable of growing in a wide range of climates, as long as there is no harsh fluctuation in temperature. The trees grow best in rich soil, with mild temperatures, frequent rain and shaded sun.
