Coffea arabica Caturra | Dwarf Coffee


Here I am offering Seeds from Coffea arabica Caturra, also known as a Dwarf Coffee. This plant is perfect for growing your own coffee indoors. Coffea arabica Caturra does not mind being in either shade or full sun and is much shorter than the normal coffee plant, making it a great selection as a house plant. I roast my own beans and almost all of the coffee I roast is arabica. I know that some people think robusta is better, but I like medium and light roasted coffees and that means arabica almost every time for me. This plant produces more coffee beans and matures quicker than common coffee plants. This is because the branches are shorter and closer together which directs more of the plants energy into producing coffee beans and growing to maturity. This variety is also more resistant to disease than the older arabica varieties. The white blossoms are scented and nicely fragrant. This plant is a larval host plant for the Half-blind sphinx Moth. It is also a nectar source for the Red-bordered Pixie, and Klugs Clearwing butterflies. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11

Coffea arabica Gesha | Geisha Coffee


Here I am offering Seeds from Coffea arabica Gesha. This is, arguably, the finest variety of coffee in the world. This variety is easily recognized because the cherries are not as round as other coffees. They are stretched out into more of a football shape (American football that is). The seeds that I am selling are from Guatemala, but this variety of coffee plant was originally from Gesha, Africa located in Ethiopia. It was introduced into South America almost 100 years ago, and this particular variety, when grown in Panama, is considered by many to be the finest cup of coffee known to man. The closest we can come to perfection is to grow this variety in our own region. This coffee is extremely floral with flavors of honey, fruit, and black tea. For me the orange flavor stands out above all others. If you give this coffee a light roast it tastes very similar to orange juice, but warm. I like it best when it is roasted to a medium. Then there is a hint of roast flavor to let you know that you are drinking coffee, and the other more perfumed flavors are more pronounced. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11
