The Coffee Plant (the plant that produces that beautiful caffeinated beverage) makes a great easy care houseplant for beginners and experienced green thumbs alike! A small potted coffee plant makes a beautiful addition to your home decor with deep green leaves that have a beautiful texture. Coffee plants prefer bright, but indirect light. This means that they should be placed near a window but not directly in the window itself. When growing, the soil needs to stay moist, but not soaking wet.
