Our purchase of two of these plants have just arrived and they look wonderful - leaves all glossy etc. Our question is how wide do they spread/
We would like to plant them but have no
real idea of height and width. Please
advise asap as we wish to plant soon.

Here's some good information. It appears that coffee trees need to be 1.5 metres apart. BUT I suspect it would depend on how tall you are going to let them grow -as left alone I think they become a giant tree!!

PS my coffee plant which I got from Daleys 2 years ago has beautiful flowers all along its stems at the moment (and is close to a metre tall). I have it planted on the side of a loquat tree - and beside a shed. It gets filtered light during most of the morning, then is shaded in the afternoon. It seems really happy with that arrangement.
