LOL. Awesome. I will update the tree pics and send info to you. I think it might be best to save shipping expense and send the trees with only a sample of their soil.
I will provide detailed instructions as to what to do upon arrival and how to care for your new family member.

No soil is really needed. Wrapping the rootball in moist paper towels and then placing the roots in a ziplock bag with a rubber band holding it in place should do the trick.

I think I'll just stick to drinking a good coffee without the labor of having to grow my own. I'm sure it is rewarding, but just not for me. Good luck.

For those that are intrigued, please read on.
I dont seem to be getting alerts about new posts. I have been very busy the last few months given holidays, travel, etc. Sorry for the delay in updates. I still have a few trees available and will update with new pics as I get caught up.
Interesting news. One of my larger trees may be about to flower. It is 3 years old. I have not heard of a coffee tree flowering this soon this far from the equator. Below is a picture. Fingers crossed. There is a lot of new growth that seems like a budding of blooms. <Excitement>

That's exciting news! I also thought it took 5 years for the coffee plant to flower. I wonder how old it was when you bought it.
I hope you'll show us pictures when it flowers.
I've yet to get a decent camera so I can take a photo of my coffee plant. But I have a couple of years to go before I can even dream of seeing a flower.

Rose, This is exciting news indeed. I am going to try to set up a time lapse camera to capture the bud development and flowering.
I am sure you know someone with a decent camera that can visit and take a pic for you. All of these pictures were taken with my Android phone. Proper lighting and patience are all that is needed. The close up shots are cropped from the high resolution original. In the camera settings I select the largest picture possible. This enables me to zoom in assuming the pic is in focus.
Looking at the new growth closely, there is no mistaking this for a flowering. Now the key is to water and feed properly to keep the plant happy.
This is my third year of ownership. I took possession of this and a few other trees three years ago this July/August. Assuming they were 3-6 months old when I got them, they should be 3 years old now.
I have kept them watered and feed them regularly. They live outside once there is no threat of temps below 40*F. Inside they are in a southern facing window with a couple high powered grow lamps to supplement lesser exposure to the Sun's life giving rays in winter.
I am moving soon, so I plan to sell all of my avocado and Coffee trees.
