Growing Coffee in Portland
Author | Jeff Chean Date | December 05, 2016
So, in our Vaughn Street store in Portland, we have some coffee trees that were given to our GM Brian as a gift recently. They look to be at least four to five years old, which is amazing given that, well, they live in Portland, Oregon. That's way outside the so-called Coffee Belt (about 1000 miles on either side of the equator). What's really amazing...or frightening...is that one if the trees is fruiting. Not a lot, mind you, but still three little cherries have somehow developed on one of the older tree's branches.
