6 Months and Doubled in size
I got the larger size plants for my husband's Christmas. We keep them in the pots they were shipped in during the colder months. In April we transfer them into very large plastic pots and used some time released fertilizer. Now they are huge!! 3' tall and full of leaves. Many of the stems are woody, which shows they are maturing nicely!!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Arabica Coffee Plant

Arabica Coffee Plant Planting Diretions

The Arabica coffee plant is an evergreen shrub originating from the highlands of Ethiopia and today provides a serious percentage of the world's coffee production.

The beans themselves are pairs of flat, elongated seeds found inside the red, cherry-like fruit. The coffee plant grows to a mature height of about 6 feet and a width of 3 feet. It's primarily grown outdoors in shaded areas in the more temperate regions of the country.

However, they can be successfully potted and grown indoors in growing zones that have a colder winter season. Nine months after the coffee plant begins to flower is when the fruiting process begins with beautiful array of fragrant white blooms.

Choosing a Location: Arabica coffee plants are self-pollinating, but will give you a better harvest with an additional plant nearby. For the best results use a sandy, slightly acidic, well draining soil and choose a location with filtered sunlight for your coffee plant.

Planting Directions (potted): The Arabica coffee is actually considered to be one of the easiest, hardiest houseplants to manage.

1) Coffee plants prefer indirect but bright light. It should be placed near an east-facing window but not directly in it.
2) Select a good organic potting soil that is rich enough to feed the plant. Make sure that your soil and your pot both have good drainage.
3) If your tree is at least 24-36 inches tall then plant into a half wine barrel sized pot or a container that is similar in size. The root system on the coffee plant is extensive and it will need this large space to support full production.
4) Keep the humidity up around the coffee plant by setting it on a water filled pebble tray in its early stages. A light misting with a water bottle in the evenings is great for a more mature plant.

Planting Directions (in ground):
1) Before planting, water the coffee plant thoroughly.
2) Dig your hole at least 2 feet wide and just as deep as the root system.
3) Carefully comb the roots with your hand to loosen them and straighten larger roots before placing in the hole.
4) Place your coffee plant upright in the hole making sure it's not at an angle and then gently back-fill half way with soil.
5) Gently press down the soil and fill the hole with water. This will bring the soil into closer contact with the root system. Let all the water drain and then finish back-filling the hole.
6) Firmly press down the soil but avoid packing it too tightly as this may damage the young roots. Keep the soil of the planting hole slightly heaped above the undisturbed soil, as it will settle down on its own a bit after planting.
7) Water the planting site with about a gallon of water, a garden watering pot works perfectly. Add mulch to help maintain a moist soil but keep it about a foot away from the base of the plant as this promotes rot and fungus.

Watering: Arabica coffee plants really enjoy water but do not like to be water logged or over saturated. For a potted coffee plant drench twice weekly with warm water until it comes out of the bottom of your pot and then drizzle over the top to simulate rain.

Coffee planted in ground will require watering 2-3 times weekly for the first 4-6 weeks with about a gallon of warm water as well. One of the perks of coffee plants is the leaves can be an indicator if more water is needed. If the leaves curl upwards, seem crispy or dry is a sign of under watering. Drooping leaves that appear too heavy for the plant to hold up that turn a shade of dark brown or black indicate overwatering.

Fertilizing: If your Arabica coffee plant is in the ground, fertilize it twice a year. Plants in the ground plants should be fed in the spring and summer with a slow releasing fertilizer around the base of the plant. Potted coffee plants need to be fertilized every two weeks during the growing season with a low concentration of fertilizer. The best results come from using a formula like 10-10-10 or an orchid fertilizer but try to use it sparingly. During early stages of growth add a bit more nitrogen.

Pruning: Your coffee plant will need some pruning on occasion; Arabica should be grown as a single stem. "Suckers" can start growing near the base of the plant and should be removed as soon as possible with a sterilized cutting tool. A basic rubbing alcohol is recommended for sterilizing your pruners or loppers.

As your coffee plant matures you'll want to prune off any primary branches that droop and touch the ground by cutting them back to the secondary branch that they are closest to. Maintain well-spaced secondary branches on each primary branch and remove any of the dead, weak or damaged branches.

Harvesting Coffee Beans: The cherries of your Arabica coffee plant take roughly nine months to fully ripen. The best way to harvest is by selective picking, where you select the best, ripest cherries for harvesting by hand. Coffee cherries don't mature all at the same time so it's necessary to pick them over the course of several days to remove your ripened cherries. the cherries are considered ripe when their skin fully turns red.

Squeeze the cherries in order to get the seeds or coffee beans out and place them into a bowl of water for 24 hours. This will make the remaining pulp stuck to the beans soft and easier to remove once the beans have fully dried. Place your beans on some newspaper and let them dry slowly. You can place them in the sun but be cautious that you don't bake them. Also, be sure to stir them around so they will dry evenly. They will reach a dry, stable condition in about a week. Repeat the process as necessary until all of your cherries have been picked and dried. When your beans are done they will be hard, almost brittle and if they're still soft at all, then they aren't ready yet.

Americans consume more than a third of the whole world's coffee and yet nearly none of it is grown within our country. You can become your own personal barista with the addition of this plant to your home.

The Arabica coffee plant isn't solely useful for the beans it produces, because the cherries that form around the beans are a delectable treat that can be enjoyed while harvesting them. The cherries are very high in plant polyphenols and antioxidants, which are known for their disease-fighting and anti-aging capabilities.

The antioxidant levels are greater than cranberries, pomegranate, green tea and raspberries, which regulate blood sugar, lower cholesterol, treats diabetes, asthma and even depression.

Not only will your coffee plant bring you the freshest coffee available and provide incredibly healthy, sweet fruit, it will also bring you a sweet jasmine-like aroma when the blooms emerge. It's a fantastic addition to your home or garden!

This is a kind of an adventure, since we live in the south of Texas ( Zone 9 ) but coffee trees have not had a development in these area. My wife is Japanese and loves and drinks coffee a lot, she , but coming from Tokyo has not an idea how it grows. It will take time to get fruit, but I will be patient and take good care of the trees.

Can these plants be grown in a gardening pot, if so how large should the pot be?
Kourtney R on May 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they can be grown in a pot, and I would get a 5 - 7 gallon pot.
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.
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.
It says the beans have to be dried after they turn red can this be done in a regular oven at what temperature and how long ?
Anita R on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You harvest when the coffee cherries - the fruit that grows on the plant - are red. The coffee beans - two per cherry - are inside the fruit. You have to remove the beans, let them dry (they have a parchment "skin" on them that also needs to come off) and then they can be roasted. The amount of roasting depends on the flavor you want in your coffee. I suppose a regular oven can be used, but since "roasting your own" has gotten popular you can buy a small coffee roaster for under $200 that is calibrated just for coffee and that also turns the beans as they roast.
How tall are the plants?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: mine is about four feet tall. we have had a lot of stress in our weather very cold to hot now and little rain, therefore slow growth. they are still very much alive and still growing

Cynthia S on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are grown in a greenhouse.
How many beans/cups of coffee per plant?
wiggyb on Jan 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Well, I think that this could depend on a lot of factors. It actually takes a lot of beans to make one cup of coffee. Each plant is capable of producing a large number of beans, but it has to be "happy" to do so. Mine didn't start making berries until I put it outside in the shade during the Spring/Summer/Fall (northern California), presumably with the pollinators/heat making it happy. Although, it has been happy inside year round, it seems that being outside has made it happier in terms of flowering/making beans. In general, I wouldn't expect that a single plant would give you enough beans to make more than a few cups, at best (based on my experience, and others may have different experiences). It may not produce any beans, but it is still an attractive plant. More of a novelty plant than a commercial or agricultural boon. Also, the preparation of beans to produce coffee is actually fairly labor intensive and takes many rounds of soaking/drying/roasting. Makes you appreciate what you buy at the store that much more, I guess!
Can I plant in new York and bring into house when cold out?
Mike N on Dec 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine is growing well in a pot but it is a large plant 4-5 ft so you'd need some room to bring inside
Will direct sunlight harm this plant?
Claudiyve on Jun 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not sure. It never grew any beans my friend said after a year.
I live in northern iowa. Would it be safe to plant these outdoors after a year of indoor growth?
Tyler2892 on May 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: These will not survive outside in winter in Iowa. They will need to be planted in pots. I put mine outside in the summer and bring them inside when the temperature dips (I live in Iowa as well). One thing to keep in mind is that they like humidity which we severely lack in the winter in Iowa, so I usually add rocks to my plant tray to keep the pot out of the standing water and add water to the tray to increase the humidity around the plant. Hope this helps!
Does this plant need a pollinator?
Myrna B on Jun 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is self-fertile, but will produce a better yield of fruit if it has a mate.

I bought this coffee plant and it cane with two plants. I have them both planted in a very large pot, do I need to separate the two coffee plants into two different pots?
