Coffea arabica or Coffee Bean Tree 1 litre plants

Coffee is such a well known commodity! But did you know that Coffea arabica plants make interesting house or conservatory shrubs with dark, glossy green leaves, small white scented flower clusters followed by bright red coffee beans. Don’t get too excited though about grinding your own coffee from the seed - unless it is dried and cured correctly, it tastes awful!
