Known as the “coffee shrub of Arabia”, “mountain coffee” or “arabica coffee” — Coffea arabica is a dwarf variety that grows only 12 inches tall and features beautiful foliage with dark green, glossy leaves and jasmine-scented, white flowers. Coffea Arabica is a gorgeous, ornamental perennial that is able to bear flowers and berries at the same time. This bean plant makes for a charming houseplant and a great exotic, novelty gift for plant lovers. The Arabica nana plant produces coffee beans that are green at first, but they turn dark red over an eight month period. With meticulous care, the first blossom can be expected after four to eight years.
