Yes, this is my coffee tree in the front yard...I think I posted a picture of the full tree in the past. It's 6 1/2 feet tall and has 3 to 4 crop stages at all times.

What do the coffee cherries look like inside the outer skins?
Are they brown ?

Terratoonie,

The coffee cherries are red and look like small regular cherries when ripe...the inside is also red the seed is a off-white which is the coffee bean which is roasted.
