Coffee Grown In South Florida

When you think of coffee and where it grows I doubt you think of Florida. But at Mounts Botanical Garden and other South Florida botanical gardens that is what they are growing, but only on the small scale.

So don't rush to the garden to get your morning cup of brew. Plus these plants are hard to grow and the berries are hard to process into a liquid source of sunshine.

You are better off eating the sweet outer flesh and figuring out how to make an extract of the green coffee beans.

Or you could just appreciate all the hard work that goes into growing, roasting, grinding and brewing of your favorite cup of black gold, the next time you purchase a caffinated beverage from your favorite coffee shop.

But if you are determined to go a step further and grow your own beans then look to some local plant nurseries for coffee plants like at Excalibur Fruit Trees in Lantana, Fla.
