It’s possible to grow your own coffee beans in your garden or inside your home. This evergreen plant produces fragrant white blossoms that mature to coffee beans. Imagine the look on your guests’ faces when you tell them that you grew the beans used to brew the coffee you’re serving them. The leaves can be used to brew delicious tea.

When grown in a container, their height is usually limited to between 4 and 6 feet. Coffee arabica can also be grown as an accent plant or to create a hedge in warmer climates.
