Almost anybody knows coffee beans but not the plants on which they grow. It is a compact shrub with glossy dark green, thin leaves. Coffee is a easy-care plant and prefers a shady, permanently warm spot in a bright living room or a wintergarden. As it grows older, coffee produces more and more of its white, fragrant flowers (3-4 cm in diameter) that are followed by small, fire-red fruits each containing two of those much-loved coffee beans. Dried and rosted they become the basis for the enjoyment of coffee all over the world. Coffee plants require a permanently moderate soil and a warm place (min. 15 °C), however, no direct sunlight: this would burn the leaves.
