Posted Wed Apr 4, 2012, 9:23pm Subject: Have You Ever Heard of a Kentucky Coffee Tree?
There is definitely such a tree. It's also known as the Coffeenut, the Coffeebean, Nickertree, Stumptree, and the French in Southern Canada named it, Chicot, meaning, dead tree because it spends most of the year without it's leaves. The pods were once used by settlers as a substitute for coffee but once coffee was available the practice was all but abandoned.
anybody else out there got any other tidbits of coffee lore out there?
Jump on here and post anything meaningful about the wonder of the coffee bean.
