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.
PS. I guess this is the right topic to post under?
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.
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'.
I had a laugh rocky !
I will laugh harder if you get raided.....
It would be interesting to see what the ''cupping'' results are on those.
The coffee tastes like 5h1t, but who cares?
