I've been waiting for this for 5 years! I've been cultivating my coffee plant since 2003, with dreams of one day harvesting my own coffee beans. I'm sure they'll be horrible and probably number in the single digits, but it's totally worth the years of wait. I read that coffee plants usually flower in years 3-4, 2-4, 4-6 - depends on the source - and berries form from the base of the flower. I could have berry buds right now! Sure, it takes 30-35 weeks for the berries to ripen. After 5 years, I can wait. Yeah!!!!!!

I wasn't sure if the plant would ever flower, as I've moved it around a lot, not always to the best locations. But guess what I saw one night recently???
This is SO exciting!
