I am just back from a weekend trip to Coorg, the home of coffee. As we were driving along, the scent of the coffee flowers wafted across , wherever we went. The fresly opened flowers of coffee have a mild, pleasing scent , somewhat like jasmine.
Coorg is a hilly place, full of coffee plantations and spice gardens. It is unbelievably beautiful, with its balmy climate and gentle people.
Wherever the flowers had turned brown, the scent was different, slightly fruity.
This is my contribution to Today's Flowers.
