About Arabian Coffee Plant

Perhaps one of the world's favorite plants, the Arabian Coffee plant produces the beans known as Arabica. Coffee is produced from the fruits which appear after their fragrant, white flowers are pollinated. The fruits must be fermented and then roasted before they are ground, a process that's been around since the 1400s! Did you know the darker the roast, the less caffeine your cup of coffee has? ☕️

It’s probably just my poor plant, but he’s been through it. He’ll get these gorgeous lush leaves and then they brown right away.

This plant grows fairly quickly but is kind of picky and doesn’t like tap water. I started exclusively using rain or distilled water with this plant and it resolved the leaf browning quickly

This plant is such a brat. Too much sun, too little sun. Too much water, too little water. Ugh. The leaves are pretty when healthy though.

This guy has been growing extremely fast! Since they love humidity so much I mist the plant twice a week and it seems to love it! It will also 100% let you know when it need water.
