We went to our local garden centre…the delightfully named Plant Barn…to pick up a few house plants to help home feel a little more homely…and to ensure we didn’t cart empty plant pots all of this way for no reason!
It is interesting to see which type of plants you can get in a different country…especially when we are living in a sub-tropical climate like Auckland.
Anyway, we came back with a coffee plant. All being well, this should bear fruit around Christmas time at which point, we should in theory be able to roast and ground our very own beans! Fingers crossed we don’t succeed in killing it before then! 😳
Coffee is a very popular drink here in NZ (isn’t it everywhere?) and they have something called a flat white which they and Australia contest the invention thereof. It is a bit like a latte only less frothy and, I would say, nicer…perhaps we can make our own in due course…
