    You could always go the chocolate coated bean approach!

  2. Maybe a while before you can enjoy a latte!

  3. Where did you find viable seeds for this?

      I picked up a plant a few years ago from a local nursery. I noticed last year that k&d had some small plants with their indoor plant stock. I’ll give my seeds a whirl, if they are viable, i’ll sort you out.

      • Just found the site- interested in getting coffee to grow (grew in Queensland) seeds have been found in Tasmania yet? Avocado tree has only one left- had lots and then the wind came this year….am in sheltered side of a hill in Launceston….Regards

          Thanks for the comment, I have been intending to plant an avo for several years now, hopefully next spring. Regarding sourcing coffee, i have seen them for sale at times at big box hardware stores such as Bunnings and Mitre 10. I have attempted coffee outside over winter twice, one in the ground, and one in a pot in the glass house. Both died. I think Tassie winters are just too cold for these guys.

          • Thank you….have discovered several sources in the north for green beans , plants…will get back to you if any success…Best wishes Rosie
