Growing Coffee

  • Orchard Establishment – A coffee orchard requires three to fours years of maintenance before a significant crop can be harvested.
  • Growing Cycle – Coffee trees typically bloom in the late winter to early spring. Harvesting occurs in the fall through late winter.
  • Mature coffee beans form into clusters of red berries, referred to as coffee cherry.
  • Harvesting is all done by hand. A coffee picker can pick between 200 and 400 pounds of coffee cherry per day. The work is very hard and demanding.
