The Spanish name of the plant: coffee comes from the Italian caffè and comes from the central Ethiopian region historically called Kaffa or Caffa where it is said that Coptic Christian monks drank the infusion of Coffea plants to stay awake.

It is a plant whose height can range from 80 to 150 cm. Its young leaves are light and shiny green, then darker green. Its flowers are white and radial. The fruits, for their part, are red with two seeds each. It grows with a single stem as a young plant, becomes bushier and bushier as it grows and is cut accordingly.

Its pure white, lightly scented flowers develop in the leaf axils of the lateral shoots. With proper care, the first flowering is expected after four to eight years.
