Family: Rubiaceae
Scientific name: Coffea arabica 'nana'
Common name: Dwarf Arabica coffee
Origin: Ethiopia

The dwarf variety of the Arabica coffee is even more suited to produce your own coffee. The plant stays small and starts producing its first berries after 3 or 4 years. These are just like the ones of the common Arabica, but grow on a smaller plant. Ideal for your living room.

You can remove the fruit flesh of the harvested berries, so only the seeds remain. Then you can dry these and remove the shell (which will loosen up a bit). Roast on a fire or in frying pan, and you’ll have your own coffee beans! Protect the plant against bright sun and water regularly. 

Also available in the Africa seed package!

Sowing description: First soak the seeds in lukewarm water for 24 hours. Then sow them with the flat side down in sowing mix. Let them germinate at 25 degC and keep the soil constantly moist. 

Sowing time: Whole year

Difficulty: Intermediate
Minimum temperature: 10 degrees Celsius

Van de 5 zaden zijn er uiteindelijk 3 opgekomen waarvan ik er 2 zelf nog groei. Deze doen het erg goed en zijn nu ongeveer een jaar oud.

Erg leuk plantje. Ik heb ze vorig jaar mei gezaaid en heb nu zeker 7 kleine koffieplantjes. Ze groeien goed en hebben erg mooi glimmend blad. Zeker een aanrader!
