Coffee Bean

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“Coffee is the seed of an evergreen shrub, which is cultivated in hot climates, and is a native of Abyssinia and of Arabia. This shrub is from 15 to 20 feet in height, and belongs to the Rubiaceæ. The fruit is of an oval shape, about the size of a cherry, and of a dark-red color when ripe. Each of these contains two cells, and each cell a single seed, which is the coffee as we see it before it undergoes the process of roasting."—(Charles Leonard-Stuart, 1911)
