    Home Grown

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    I am new to all this but have decided to grow my own coffee, and possibly some cocoa as well. I live in the Melbourne area.

    I have purchased 3 coffee plant seedlings (10cm) and 24 seeds, which I plan to germinate.

    I will start them off as indoor plants.

    I plan on building a greenhouse for them when they mature a bit more. I was hoping for 8 coffee plants and 2 cocoa plants. I might also try to get a few Catui varieties to keep indoors (they are dwarf plants).

    Should receive the initial purchases next week. I will post some pictures as I progress.

    Cheers,
    Shane
    PS. I guess this is the right topic to post under?

    Hi Shane,
    Sounds like a great project. Nothing better than appreciating the "beans" of your labour.
    When you are able to, it would be great to see a few pics of your set-up and the progress so far.
    Regards, Mark.

    Hi Shane,
    Here is a picture of my coffee plants.
    I bought them from this guy at the markets.
    They are a healthy little bunch.
    The beans are a bit funny looking but make a great cup of coffee.
    Talk about 'buzz'.

    It would be interesting to see what the ''cupping'' results are on those.

    The coffee tastes like 5h1t, but who cares?
