The coffee plant is an evergreen shrub native to Ethiopia and Sudan, now primarily grown in Latin America for commercial use. Leaves are dark and glossy and grow in pairs, and the small white flowers produce a strong aromatic scent. Coffee "cherries" begin green and gradually turn a vivid red. The fruit is edible and higher in antioxidants than pomegranates or blueberries.
Coffee plants prefer temperatures between 59º - 75º F and will need protection both from frost in the spring and fall and from direct sunlight in the summer, and are often kept indoors as houseplants.
