Harvest Home-Grown Coffee

Why Arabica Coffee Plants?

Grow your own coffee with ease...no matter where you live! Just walk over and harvest your beans when they ripen from your Arabica Coffee Plant. Dry your savory, Arabica coffee beans in your oven or roaster. Once they have completely cooled, they are ready to grind and make into a delicious brew.

It offers year-round growth. This will become your favorite houseplant. It produces colorful cherries against a background of glossy dark green foliage. They go from green to yellow, to orange, then finally to deep red. Each cherry will produce two coffee beans. And you'll get hundreds of these cherries!

And it's no-fuss. This evergreen plant requires minimum maintenance and is trouble-free. Keep it in a pot indoors or out. If you live where it's colder, just place in a room with windows during the winter or grow indoors all year round.

Plus, the Arabica's caffeine production has another huge benefit: Resisting pests, diseases, and temperature extremes. The caffeine actually acts as a shield against these tough conditions!

Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better

When you order from our nursery, you receive a well-rooted, more mature Coffee Plant that quickly establishes in your home. With proper care, you even could start picking beans after the first season.

Our bigger Coffee Plants sell out fast...especially since they're so hard to find anywhere else. We recommend that you order now, while they are still available!

Pollination Info

Arabica Coffee Plant Pollination

Arabica Coffee Plants are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Arabica Coffee Plant will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Arabica coffee plants are self-pollinating, but will give you a better harvest with an additional plant nearby. For the best results use well-draining soil and choose a location with filtered sunlight for your plant. An east-facing window is ideal.

Select a pot that's about twice the size of your plant's shipped container, use organic soil, and place your plant in its pot. 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.

2. Watering: Water once weekly with warm water until it comes out of the bottom of your pot. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 inches down.

FGT Tip: If the leaves curl upwards, or seem crispy and dry, this can be 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.

3. Fertilizing: Potted 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.

4. Pruning: Remove any low-growing branches or leaves near the base with a sterilized cutting tool.

5. Harvesting: 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.


Can I grow a coffee plant in my house?

Yes, coffee plants can be grown indoors, provided that the correct light and soil conditions are met.

Are coffee plants toxic to humans?

All other parts of a coffee plant beyond the seeds and the fruit, which are used to make coffee, are toxic and will cause digestive discomfort in humans, cats and dogs.

Do coffee plants smell like coffee?

Yes and no. There are some similarities in the smell, but since your coffee plant is actively growing and not roasted, don't expect it to smell like a fresh cup of brewed coffee.

Fun plants to have

I ordered this in 2020 and at the time came in a size called (4 inch pot). I separated each of the 10 plants growing in it and they've all grown to about 3-5ft tall since that time. In May 2022 they started to flower (very unique smelling flowers!) and I've been harvesting ripe coffee cherries for the past several weeks. We'll see how much I have after harvesting it all and roasting, but I hope it's enough for several French presses worth of coffee. I'm in zone 7b and had them indoors under a grow light for winters up until this year where they're all in a large greenhouse (except a few I keep in the house for pretty house plants). These plants have been quite disease and pest resistant and they're pretty easy to take care of. The only pain for me has been mixing the soil, but that's because I insist on putting crushed red lava rock in the soil.

Fast and in great shape

The two coffee plants I ordered came faster than I expected and in relatively great shape. They have been thriving since they got here. Now I just need to wait to see how many years before first fruit.
