Coffee beans grow on an attractive little plant with glossy green leaves and a compact growth habit. In their native habitat, they like to grow into medium-sized trees, but the plants are regularly pruned to a more manageable size by coffee plantation growers.

If you want to grow a coffee tree inside, you will have to take that pruning to another level and keep the plant truly small. Note that you cannot grow coffee from the beans you buy in a store; those have been treated and roasted and will not sprout.
