The Q&A Archives: Acidic soil for coffee plants.

Question: I have 2 small coffee plants and the instructions say they like acidic soil? I have looked on every bag of fertilizer and cannot find acidic soil. How do I make it? Sue Parker

Answer: You can amend the soil with peat moss or composted oak leaves prior to planting acid-loving plants, and feed with an acidified fertilizer such as Miracid. If you are keeping them in containers, choose a potting soil with peatmoss or mix some additional peat moss into the potting soil prior to using it. Hope this clarifies things for you.
