Description

Coffee is one of the world's favourite drinks, and also one of the most important commercial crop-plants, and actually the second most valuable international commodity. Coffee trees can be grown outside anywhere there is a subtropical climate, although they make an attractive specimen and talking point as a pot plant in cooler climes. Arabica coffee is accepted as the best of all forms and this variety is "Ethiopia Sidamo", a type grown exclusively in the Sidamo Province of Ethiopia. It produces small greyish beans, and is especially valued for its deep, spicy wine, or chocolate-like taste and floral aroma.
