This Coffee arabica plant would make an unusual gift. It is presented in a ceramic coffee cup. Native to tropical Africa, there are actually 125 species of coffee, most of which grows at high altitude. Arabica is one of the main beverage species.

  • In the wild it forms a small tree or large shrub which can grow from 2 to 8 meters tall.
  • The tree has horizontally branching stems, although it is pruned on plantations to a small shrub size.
  • The leaves are evergreen.
  • Self-fertile.
  • The coffee drink is made from the roasted seeds of the plant.
  • The shiny red fruits are picked and the seeds or beans are sent to mills in order to remove the hard outer layer.
  • Coffee has been popular as a drink since the 17th century.
  • The seeds contain caffeine which is a stimulant.
  • Coffee wood can be used in construction.
  • Protect this plant from frost. It is not hardy here in the UK.
