Commonly grown as a house plant, this extremely important commercial plant, coffea arabica, is originally native to the humid forests of Ethiopia and South Sudan but today it is cultivated in many other parts of the world. In its wild state, it is a small tree, up to 8 m tall, but in cultivation it is usually pruned to a small shrub to facilitate the harvesting process. It has elliptical, shiny green leaves and fragrant white flowers followed yellow to purple fruits. Coffea arabica is the main source of our ubiquitous coffee, and it is also used in liqueurs, as a flavoring, as a source for caffeine, etc

Sowing; First soak the coffee seeds in water for 24 hours. Then sow the seeds in damp sand or wet vermiculite in which the excess water has been drained. Otherwise, you can place the seeds between moist coffee sacks, which should be watered twice a day and drained well.
Once the coffee seed germinates, very carefully remove it from the sand, vermiculite, or burlap bags. Make a hole about 1.25 cm deep in a friable loam soil with a high humus content. Rotted manure, bone meal, and dried blood can also be added. If this type of soil is not readily available try a light weight and porous soil. Place the seed flat side down in the hole and sprinkle soil over the hole. Do not press the soil down firmly. Placing a 1/2 inch of mulched grass on top will help preserve moisture, but should be removed when the seed has fully germinated.
The seeds should be watered daily. Too much water or too little water will kill the seed. The soil should remain well drained, but moist at all times.
After germination, the coffee plant should either be left alone or carefully removed and planted in a soil with a low pH (acidic) and high nitrogen content. The soil should be porous. Therefore, course sand or basalt gravel dust can be added. Manure can also be added. A fertilizer that is appropriate for orchids can be used sparingly for the coffee plant to maintain mineral levels and a low pH.
