This week´s SMH Good Living cover story about a tree that fruited in a Woolloomooloo community garden. Expert Toby Smith, of Tobyś Estate, processed the beans and declared ¨not bad for coffee at sea level¨. What are you waiting for :) | Diane - Seven Hills, NSW 23-Apr-2010

Coffee Tree

I am not a big fan of the roasted coffee seed beverage. However the fresh coffee berries of some varieties tastes like sweet corn syrup, and have high levels of polyphenol antioxidants. Try the fresh berries too! | Jonathan - Black Mountain-cooroy, QLD 05-Mar-2011

Weed Warning: The Coffee Tree is a highly attractive small tree very well suited to the subtropical and tropical regions. The layer of seedlings underneath any coffee tree is a clear indication of its germination potential and the bright red sweet coffee berries are a delight for the birds. The bulging coffee industry in Northern NSW has caused some alarm about the potential for this fruit to be a damaging weed in the future. Should you seek to grow your own coffee, we recommend netting the tree and removing the tree is you cease to harvest the berries.
