Coffea Arabica has some of the richest history in our plant collection! 60% of the world's coffee production comes from this single plant, and it has a very long history with humanity - we came to love this plant around the 15th century in Yemen and it's only spread from there!
These plants can grow quite a bit, sometimes reaching up to 15 feet tall if you don't trim them back. After 3 or 4 years, you'll notice your coffee plant start to flower! The flowers can be followed by small fruits that ripen from green to black, and contained within the ripe fruits are the coffee beans that can then be roasted, ground up, and made into coffee.
Lighting: Bright, indirect light.
Water: Likes to be kept moist, but not soggy. Water once the top 1" of soil has dried.

Fertilize: Monthly with bacterial inoculant recommended for steady growth and to promote richer coloration in the foliage.
Temperature: Room temp (55-85 degrees is ideal), protect from harsh fluctuations in temperature particularly in the winter
