coffee flowers!!!!

I recently visited La Mocora along with two friends (Lisa and Bob) who wanted to know this place, as you can see I went for other reasons but I found what I least expected. When I lived in La Mocora one of the things I most enjoyed was having a cup of coffee every morning, but it was no ordinary coffee, this coffee was roasted, ground and screened and with an exquisite aroma that only I can find there. Who does not love a cup of coffee in the morning? that’s why in honor of one of my addictive habits today I´ve decided to share some pictures of flowers of coffee.

ImagenCoffee is not just black liquid that we mix with water, sugar, honey, milk, cinnamon, or anything else that we like.Imagendid you know that coffee aroma characteristics depends on the type of crops that have around it!!!

ImagenDrinking coffee is a pleasure, I am filled with power, although some doctors do not agree with me makes me feel good and I feel less tired but of course I am not a doctor …….. This post is dedicated to all who like me, love addictively drink coffee every morning and sometimes not just in the mornings.

  4. Great post amiga! The photos are beautiful, and I did not know that the aroma depended on what’s near the plant. Thanks for that trivia!

    Your happy spirit comes through your writing!

    I am so pleased to see the coffee flowers. They are beautiful. Do they have a perfume? What do they grow next to the coffee plants at La Mocora?

    • silvana1989 says:

      the flowers have a fresh smell jasmine, La Mocora have coffee growing alongside orange crops, coffee is usually planted with plantain, cocoa but no absorb the aromas just to seize the shadow. I also know sometimes some flowers absorb coffee aroma.

    We toured a coffee plantation several years ago while in Costa Rica and got to see these beautiful flowers and had a local explain the coffee-growing process. Lovely post Silvana. 🙂

      The Ecuadorian coast is very similar to Costa Rica I´m pretty sure your tour it was very informative. Now you have a better idea How is coffee growing in Ecuador as well… Thanks for your kind comment.

  9. I have seen coffee growing in Mexico and in Guatemala, but I have never been there when it was flowering. Thank you! I sit and sip my coffee right now – perhaps you are doing the same. If so, nice having a cup with you.
