I really think there should be some existing threads about this topic, but I'm too impatient to find a good one to continue, so I'm starting a new thread and will link any relevant older threads and posts here as I find them.
For now, I wanted to say my coffee plant that I grew from seed -- I'm pretty sure it was two years ago -- has started to branch this season, I can't wait until it [url=https://www.coffee4dummies.com/jamaican_blue_mountain/growing_coffee_part_1]officially outgrows the "sucker" stage and attains the "bush" status[/url]
I found a terrifically informative reference for both growing them from seeds and keeping them growing as container plants in northern locations:
Logee's sells yellow cherry variety which I have on my Wishlist. It's description says: "Plants usually start fruiting once a branching habit has begun, usually around 3Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ in height." and [url=https://www.logees.com/ftg/Coffea.pdf]in their growing guide for regular coffee[/url], "Coffeas make excellent indoor plants being tolerant of lower light and low humidity. They are usually grown from seed and will take 2-3 years to come into flower and fruit."
