(Coffea arabica nana) Tropical houseplant or greenhouse subject, eventually reaching 3-4 feet in height. Large, thin, glossy leaves are followed in due course by small, extremely fragrant, jasmine-scented, star-shaped flowers. These yield a yellow berry which contains the seeds, which when roasted are "coffee beans."

What are the pros? cool conversation plant

What are the cons? difficult to germinate

Review:

I did not do anything terribly special when I first bought these in 2011. I planted some in peat seed starter trays and put them in a sunny window and kept them moist. I got bupkus. Using the same ones I bought in 2011 (now Jan 2014), I followed the recommendation to germinate them the way you would bean sprouts, ensuring to break open the seed coat. This is the 4th day mine have been in a jar of water on a shelf in my kitchen (not in the sun), and several have already germinated. This seems to be the correct way to do it. I will be transferring the already-germinated ones to peat trays in another day or so, and soaking the rest until they germinate, too...skipping the cheesecloth step.

What are the pros? the idea of it

What are the cons? wouldn't germinate

Review:

I soaked these as directed and put them under grow lights; kept them moist, etc, etc. After months, the 5 I planted never grew. It was really disappointing. I'm going to try the soak for days in a bottle method and see if that works. I love the idea of growing them.

What are the pros? challenge and a half

What are the cons? went through 19 seeds for 1

Review:

Here is how I did it...finally! I got all 20 to sprout in a bottle. I subm.them for three days,then removed the seed coat; it will mold otherwise. I then rinsed them daily like the hippies sprout beans; for about a month. They will turn deep green and sprout a tail. As they sprouted I planted them...then they died. Finaly I place the last one on a peat pod flat side down; it's root went down and the seed lifted up. Next time I will start all of them this way.

Review:

The first thing I did when I got my coffee seeds was to put them directly under a grow light and keep them warm and moist. After a few months nothing happened. Then I decided to try again with new seeds that i let soak for a few days. I replanted and now I've got one sprouted so far.

Review:

I used to live in Guatemala doing volunteer work for about 4 years and coffee plants are nostalgic to me because they grew EVERYWHERE. My local friends taught me when we would go hiking in the mountains to pick them fresh, remove the berry skin, and suck the sweet clear gel that grows around the beans. The only ones I ever saw had green berries that turned yellow and then red when ripe though.... anyways, since they are farmed by everyone there I would roast my own coffee. First you have to leave the fresh berries to dry in the sun, then crush them, remove the chaff til you just have beans, and then roast and grind. I should warn you, though, that 10 pounds of fresh berries only produces about 1 pound of roasted coffee, so don't expect to be drinking coffee from these little guys. It's fun and interesting though to grow if you want to have a better idea of where your coffee comes from :)
