coffee tree is a tropical evergreen shrub. Delicate white
blossoms would entice you to the plant with the scent of
jasmine. The flowers give way to cherries. Plump red coffee
cherries, green fruit and flowers do at times grow on the
branches all at the same time, and that means the ripe berries
must be picked by hand. The coffee cherries look similar to
cranberries in shape and color. This is a strong coffee and we
often find ourselves adding hot water to the pot to
"tame" the brew. Professional coffee makers recommend
two tablespoons of coffee for every six ounces of water. If you
use decaffeinated coffee, some of the aroma and flavor is lost
in processing, so add two more tablespoons ground coffee for
each pot of coffee. You can adjust the recommendation to suit
your tastes. This is the coffee I find delicious with milk and
6 (8-ounce) cups cold water (10 cup mark on coffee pot)
