  • Origanally from Sierra Leone, Coffea Stenophylla was discovered in 1890: a particularly small-leaved coffee plant, cultivated at a height of up to 700 m.
  • The well-known “Highland Coffee” is made from those beans.
  • The plant needs little water. The beans are round and large, and the fruits become black during ripening.
  • Mild in taste, not typically African “earthy”, Stenophylla coffee is almost comparable to tea.
  • By the nature of a low caffeine content, one can drink the coffee also perfectly in the evening.

    Please how can I get some coffee stenophilla variety seeds to buy and sent to Nigeria for trying to cultivate or any other varieties. I would like real fresh ones to try to germinate by myself.

    Thanks

      Hi Joshua, Sorry, I am afraid I do not have connections to get seeds of this variety. But good luck with it. Please let me know, when you are successful!
      Best, Daniela
