Genuine Coffee Grower...
Brad's secret obsession -
if you've known him for very long, then it's no secret to you!
So, of course, moving to Kenya, the source of so much amazing coffee, has been a fun added bonus to our time here!
A few months ago, Brad stopped by our friends' plant stand to ask if they ever sold coffee trees.
Yes - they had one there!
They even brought it to our yard and helped Brad to plant it... just so.... In a year, they PROMISED Brad,
you will get 1 pound of beans from this plant!
A proud day... we took photos, smiled, and Brad officially calls himself a "coffee grower".
My Dad's visit brought a quiet whisper...
"That's not a coffee tree!"
He instantly recognized the gardenia plant. And soon, none of us could deny it - as this amazing flower bloomed! Definitely NOT coffee!
We all enjoyed a great laugh... our plant stand friends came over to inspect and agree - they had been mistaken... definitely NOT coffee...
Now, there is a 2nd bush planted next to our beautiful gardenia plant...
we're hoping for a different kind of flower on this one!
In one year's time,
come on over for some "home-grown" coffee...
The plant guys PROMISED!
