Don’t wait 4-5 years for tiny seed grown plants to produce coffee beans. Order now and you will receive well-rooted, mature coffee plants that quickly become established in your home. With proper care, you could start picking beans after the first season.

Easily grow your own Coffee, no matter where you live. This will become your favorite houseplant. It produces colorful beans against a background of glossy dark green foliage.

Just walk over and harvest your beans when they ripen. They go from green to yellow, to orange, then finally to deep red. In addition to the coffee aroma, you'll also love the spring flowers that smell like jasmine.

Dry your savory, Arabica coffee beans in your oven or roaster. Once they have completely cooled, they are ready to grind and percolate into a delicious brew. Growing your own coffee was never easier.

Home coffee growing has recently become very popular. It was started by Coffee Connoisseurs looking for more flavor... then Health Conscious growers looking for less chemicals. Now, Dr. Oz has fueled demand with his study on the weight loss benefits of eating green coffee beans. This is an amazing plant, full of many pleasant surprises.

This evergreen plant requires minimum maintenance and is trouble free. Keep it in a pot indoors or out. If you live in zones 9-11, just plant in the ground, and protect it when temperatures go below 45F. If you live where its colder, no worries... just place in a room with windows during the winter or grow indoors all year round.

In addition to enjoying the freshest cup available... you'll also feel good knowing that your beans were not sprayed with pesticides and are free of mold.

Here’s how your plant produces years sooner. Coffee beans are basically seeds. Most nurseries just stick them in dirt and quickly have a cheap plant to sell. Here’s the problem… that plant takes 4-5 years to mature to where it can reproduce (make coffee beans). So their customers spend half a decade caring for a plant… wondering why it never makes beans.

Your plant is not grown from seed. Instead, it starts from a mature, fruit bearing branch cutting. This branch grows into a vibrant, well-formed bush, proven to make great tasting coffee beans.

It skips the 4-5 year maturing process, so you get more beans sooner. This thousand year old process is what coffee plantations and organic growers use. It takes more time, labor and skill than planting a seed, but the difference is enormous.

Our mature Coffee Plants will likely sell out. We recommend that you order now, while they are still available.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Arabica Coffee Plant.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Arabica Coffee Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Arabica Coffee Plant again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Growing well
I received the coffee plant and put it into a container. It looks and is growing great! No fruiting yet, but I think it's still early for the size I ordered. Arrived well-packaged and healthy and still looks healthy. Will bring it inside when it gets too cold in the winter.

Want to Grow Coffee Beans!
I've always wanted to grow my own coffee beans, and decided to order a more mature plant in order to attempt that feat. So far, the tree is doing fine, although the intense heat this summer has affected it adversely. I'm pleased that it has lived this long! It will probably take another year before coffee beans will show up, but I'll wait!

Started slow and then took off
Our coffee plant started slow and then took off and is growing like it is energized. Can not wait until next year when the beans start coming.

Happy & excited!
Have not yet been able to harvest seeds, but plant came in quickly and it is thriving so far. Have had it for a full month and no issues yet. Since this is the tree I am most excited about, I have even gotten a plant light to ensure I am doing my part to care for it. This gal is happy & excited.

My plant was received in excellent condition. We planted it in a pot and it is growing well. I will bring it inside in the winter to keep it that way. I plan on buying more when my finances are better.

Thank you,

will it survive in zone 8?
A shopper on Sep 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It probably can survive in zone 8, as it is a tropical tree. But do not keep it in intense sunlight more than 3 hours, as it will burn the leaves. Early morning sunlight is best, so long as it's in a somewhat shady area, such as under a canopy of higher trees. Some people keep it inside at an eastern-facing window for the light. Keep it well watered, but not soggy.
Can these plants be grown in a gardening pot, if so how large should the pot be?
Kourtney R on May 27, 2015
Should this plant be trimmed back to allow it to bush out more at the bottom??
Norma G on Mar 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is possible, and sometimes even necessary, to prune back a coffee plant if you don't want it to grow taller than you are. Pinch out the new growth at the top of the tree, and it will eventully bush out.
Can I start a business with this plant or is there some law against using pre-grown plants?
Adam T on Jan 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Usually, there will be a tag with the plant at purchase time that will indicate whether propagation is forbidden or not. If it is forbidden, you cannot make money from reproducing and selling it.

how many pounds of coffee plant produce per year?
Charles B on Aug 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've only had my trees a little over a year, so they really haven't produced any coffee, yet. So far, just a handful of tiny beans.
what zone can i plant it outside?
Solaraardvark on Jul 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I can't answer that regarding my purchase from Fast Growing Trees. While I ordered a coffee tree from them, I was shipped a gardenia bush. They would not acknowledge the shipping error and basically told me that I didn't know what a coffee tree looked like. I have another that I got in Hawaii. It's now 6' tall. I know what a coffee tree looks like. So be aware. You may not get what you order and they do not acknowledge their errors.
Is this plant a self pollinator? How big does it get, and what are the fruiting seasons?

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Fruiting Plants are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
