    Im okay with the bean growing on the tree already roasted to CS 9. My biggest concern would be how the tree is storing the beans prior to harvest. Everybody know that in Darwin they refrigerate/air-con everything so the transport/supply nodus operandi of the tree and where it grows, stores and ships the beans from may be a flawed model. This would be most disappointing! ;D

    Interesting, but not quite a new discovery. This plant was known to occur in Northern Australia at least as early as 2003 as Psilanthus brassii. Scienists have now decided it belongs in the genus Coffea after all - for the time being at least.

    Note that there are over 90 known species of coffee with many not containing caffeine and only two or three considered worthy for making coffee drinks.
