People have erroneous ideas ahout the cup that cheers, hut does not inebiate'
and it is our purpose to set some of these ideas right.
Like the tea tree, if allowed to grow, the coffee tree would attain a height of
twenty-five or thirty feet, but it is kept trimmed down to about six feet.
The berries grow two in a pod with the ilat sides together: except at the top of
the bush where one berry forms in a pod. These berries are round and are called
by the trade Peaberry and Cara Cola. They are separated from the other berries
by running them over a large inclined belt. The Ilat berries soon stop on the flat
side while the round ones roll off. So in buying Cara Cola you do not know
whether jou are getting Guatemala, Salvador, Kio or some other kind, but von can
console yourself by knowing that your dealer seldom knows any more than you.
