Backyard Coffee

I love good coffee. My favorite is Hula Daddy Coffee from Kona, Hawaii. On a trip to Hawaii and the Big Island we spent a day going to the Hula Daddy Coffee Farm and store. It was quite enlightening on the whole process from growing to roasting. Living in zone 9B I thought, why not try a plant, it will be a great conversation piece. Little did I know I would be roasting my own pot of coffee soon.

I have been thinking about getting a plant for a while now. Where did you purchase yours. What is a good time to plant them. Did you fertilize? If so, how often. Thank you for the story. I'm really glad it is doing so well for you.

We picked it up at the local Walmart, not in the plant area but inside where they have the bozai and other specialty plants. We planted seeds from it this year and have success with it but really have not planted them enough to know what is best as far as when to plant but I would say early spring..... We used a basic fertilizer and fertilized it on a regular summer schedule. One fact though... they can't take frost very well.
