The First Cherry!

Some super exciting news here in manhattanroasts land – we have our first ripe coffee cherry!  It’s been a couple years since we starting growing coffee plants in our sun-filled New York City apartment and we’ve had some trials and tribulations during that time.  Magnesium deficiencies, green scale, you name it!  But here we are with our first ripe coffee cherry!

I’ll be picking this in the next couple days and hopefully will have a few more to go with it!  We’re pretty sure we’ll be able to get about an espresso’s worth of coffee from this years yield ;)

Now that we’ve crossed this great milestone we have a couple other cool tricks up our sleeves, including doing some plant cloning!

We’ll report back on how the freshest cup of coffee we’ve ever had tastes… as soon as we can make it.
