Coffee Plant

Coffee berries are taken from the coffee tree which grows up to 6 meters and has evergreen leaves. Farmers make sure to keep it at a 3m height by continuously trimming it.

The plant has white self-pollinated flowers. They grow into cherries which change color from green to yellow, and finally to red. When the cherries ripen, farmers collect, peel and then roast them at varied temperatures depending on the needed aroma. A coffee tree requires 6-8 years until it can grow a full crop.

The most common types of the plant grow best in tropical heights, like in Latin America and South East Asia and Africa.
