Sometimes A Bean Is Really A Fruit And It Tastes Delicious

Though it's called a coffee bean, believe it or not, that's a fruit pit that you make your morning beverage from. The coffee berry itself has two stones or "beans" that are roasted to become what we know as coffee. It takes a little patience to grow your coffee tree. It takes them three to five years before they bear fruit.

Your morning coffee

After that, though, they'll create your morning coffee beans for the next ten to twenty years. If you enjoy composting, coffee grounds are a nice addition to your pile. While Brazil is known for coffee today, it was also known for using the bark of a different kind of tree to brew an unusual liquor in times past. Though you may not want to drink a mimosa bark beer yourself, you can find mimosa trees in our online tree nursery.
