The hilly place, the curved roads, the coffee plantations all around, protecting it from the monkeys, playing under the coffee plant and playing with the coffee seeds.....the most beautiful memories of my life.

Flowering in coffee is visually striking and one must experience it in life time. The coffee plants are decorated with white flowers, with a beautiful smell and dancing honeybees and butterflies flower or coffee blossom

People will start harvesting the coffee seeds, when they start turning red. The coffee seeds are sun dried on a clean floor.drying coffee seeds or fruits Then the dried coffee seeds are pulped and coffee beans are separated. Finally coffee beans are roasted and powdered.
