As some of you may know, most of the plants in our shop are coffee plants. Well, next time you happen in, take a look at the coffee tree on your immediate left and you will see a ripening coffee cherry! Inside that little coffee cherry are two green coffee beans. Once the cherry is bright red (optimum ripeness) I will pick it off the tree, remove the pulp and parchment (inner covering), and store the green beans until I have enough to roast, brew, and sample a cup. Most of the plants are from Kona, Hawaii, but I don't really expect the cup to be great. Because while Canton may be a great place, the altitude does not lend itself well to quality coffee production.
