How do I grow coffee in my garden?

To grow coffee in your garden, you will need to purchase a coffee tree. Once you have your tree, find a location in your garden that gets full sun and has well-drained soil. Coffee trees do not like to be waterlogged, so make sure the area you choose does not stay wet after a rainstorm.

It takes about 3-5 years for a coffee tree to mature and produce beans. You will know the beans are ready to harvest when they turn from green to yellowish brown. Once they are harvested, the beans must be dried before they can be roasted. To dry the beans, spread them out on a clean surface in direct sunlight or use a food dehydrator set on low heat. Drying can take anywhere from 7-14 days.
