it’s national coffee day…let’s be honest, how would we survive mondays (or actually all days) without it? check out the plant that coffee comes from…legend tells that a 9th century ethiopian goatherder discovered coffee when he noticed how excited his goats became after eating the beans from a coffee plant! #coffeeflower #nationalcoffeeday #butfirstcoffee
it’s national coffee day! to celebrate the plant we all can’t live without..check out this time lapse of the blooming of a flower on a coffee shrub in a single day, from 5:30 am to 5:30 p.m. this usually takes place approximately eight days after the first big rain, following the end of harvest at a coffee plantation. it is common for the plantation to flower all at once, and last for three days, before the flowers wither and fall, enabling new green beans to emerge from the same bud on the branch of the coffee shrub.
