Is it Coffea Arabica?


I thought it was Coffea liberica sir. Waiting for confirmation.

Photo was clicked in a coffee plantation but did not resemble the Coffea arabica growing there.


The tree has been identified as Coffea robusta.

ID confirmation – MS210411 -30 – Coffee plant: I am sending the photographs of cofee plant.  Photos taken near  Dubare Elephant Camp. Coorg.  Date 27.2.11.  Not sure of which species.  C. arabica or robusta.

– I think it is Coffea arabica 


– … with .. … Coffea arabica … little knowledge (could be wrong): this shrub would have leaves loosely similar in shape AND / OR size to that of our familiar Tabernaemontana divaricata


To me appears more closer to images at Coffea canephora Pierre ex A.Froehner rather than those at Coffea arabica L. 

The ID provided by … tallies with the photographs in the link provided by him.
