Coffee Flowers

 My coffee plant has brought out a few flowers for the first time. This is the season for coffee flowers, which make the coffee plantations in Coorg and Wayanad sell heavenly. The flowering season lasts for a very short time, like the cherry blossom season in Japan.
 I was lucky to visit a coffee plantation in Coorg when the whole place was awash with flowers. The flowers smell like jasmine, they don't have a coffee fragrance!
 Unlike the tea plantations, the coffee plantations are ecologically friendly, as many other plants thrive there.
You can see some lovely flowers at Today's Flowers.

  2. I have never seen a coffee flower before. To see so many of them at a coffee plantation must be an incredible site. I would love to smell their fragrance. Thank you so much for sharing these today and wishing you a great weekend.
