The coffee bush is an evergreen shrub that as well as producing coffee beans is also an attractive houseplant.

Coffea arabica has large, elliptic dark green glossy leaves with pronounced veins. The bush, when large and mature, may produce fragrant white flowers and red berries - but it will need to be grown in a warm conservatory for this to happen in the UK, and it may take many years.

As well as being the source of coffee beans, the timber is also used in construction and for fuel. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots - read more here.
