Interesting Coffee Facts

  • Coffee trees are shade-loving plants and grow up to 5 metres in height.
  • There are 66 known species of coffee plants but only 2 are used commercially – Arabica and Robusta
  • There are over 50 different countries and regions world-wide that grow coffee.  Distintive flavours are determined by the altitude and climate of those countries.
  • Coffee grounds are an excellent garden helper either directly applied or added to compost. They have a 20 to 1 ratio of carbon to nitrogen.
  •  The addition of coffee grounds to acid loving plants such as hydrangeas is good for blue blooms. Blueberries, cranberries, and citrus fruits also like coffee added to their soil. Other coffee-loving plants include camellias, azaleas, roses, gardenias and rhododendrons.
  • Slugs and snails do not like coffee grounds so sprinkle around plants to protect them.
  • Cats do not like the smell of coffee so sprinkle around garden beds to keep cats away.
