Question: I have just planted my six K7 coffee trees in the last 10 days. It has been hot and dry  and windy at Stokers Siding but I've been watering and the trees are reasonably protected from wind. The tops of some of the leaves are an orangy-brown while the underside is still green. Any ideas? Maybe just a bit of transplant shock?

I've only had mine (x2) for a few weeks so limited experience but so far I've had it in ~6hours filtered light, ~2hours direct sunlight only and it seems to be doing ok. We've had a heat wave in Sydney and it's fine so far. Yours might be in too much sun.
Lynden says... [171 days 17hrs ago]
Cheers for that Jane. Yes they are getting a bit more sun than yours but not full sun and I'll keep my fingers crossed as only a few leaves are affected. I understand as they increase in size they become more sun tolerant.

Correy's Edible Fruits
Update: 251 days 16hrs

Comments: -

Yes I'm a huge fan of coffee trees and have made a few cups of coffee using my own beans. I am a huge novice but very much enjoy the understanding I get from doing it by myself. Even though I have quite a few plants I don't think I will be able to support my coffee addiction from them.

UPDATE 2014: Fruiting like crazy, AND when about to relocate it, found about a dozen self-seeded seedlings underneath! :) So have potted those up, and see how they go :) And also see how the transplant goes - it's not into ideal location, but I needed to move it foraquaponics tank

UPDATE 2012: Lots of flowers this year, berries seem to be developing nicely

From beautanicals.com.au (lovely folks). Growing steadily and happily in moderate shade (under acacia)

Dwarf Coffee - Catuai (Seedling) 10/10

Ahimsa Cottage's Edible Fruits
Update: 1454 days 7hrs

Comments: -

I hope to use the beans to make our own coffee eventually. I initially planted these trees at the back of our property which had a lot of clay and only managed to water them once a month and as a result their growth was slow. I decided to transplant them to along side the house improve the soil by adding peat moss and lots of mulch and where i could regularly water them. They have increased in size x5 in the last 6 months. 

In April this year the tree began to fruit bright red coffee cherries, i picked these squeezed the green beans and soaked them in water for 2 days. i poped these beans into a mesh bag rubbed them to remove the membrane.  Then put  the beans onto paper kitchen towel sitting on a baking rack. Over the period of a couple of days the beans dry out, cracks form at the top so that the white parchment starts to spilt. The  parchment layer can be picked off to reveal the green bean. I have stock piling  these green bean til i  have enough 500 grams to trial roasting with pop corn machine. i will attach images.
