Coffee Plant in a Cup

Coffea Arabica

Our Arabica coffee plant in a coffee cup is such a lovely idea, perfect as gift for your friends or those who love plants.

The coffee plant is comes in its very own coffee cup with coffee bean design which you could use after the plant has outgrown it. Coffee is one of the worlds most valuable and widely traded commodities, usually found growing as shrubs or small trees in south Africa and tropical Asia.

The coffee plant produces highly scented white flowers followed by the fruit (coffee bean) which takes nine months to ripen. Arabica coffee is also known as 'mountain coffee' and is thought to be the first species of coffee to be cultivated. It is thought to produce better coffee than other major commercial varieties.

Personally, we can't do without a good cup of coffee with friends at about 10 in the morning.

Our coffee in a mug is a young plant, approximately 15cm in height, and the cup is ideal for espressos.

Please be aware the design of the actual coffee cup may vary to that in the photographs.
