Coffee arabica (Grafted) 9/10

Heather2's Edible Fruits
Update: 5000 days 5hrs

Comments: -

We planted the 2 coffee trees behind the shed as we read they like Lime. The cement slab does seem to encourage them along. Our first crop we only got enough beans off 1 of the trees to have 2 cups of coffee. This year we got 4 kilo of beans between the 2 trees.

For roasting the beans we got an oil can and devised a way to put it on the BBQ rotisserie. After some experimenting we found by doing it this method for 20 minutes it gave them a lovely taste.

To add extra flavour to the beans we were wondering if we could add Macadamia Oil to the roasting procedure?
