Growing Coffee Beans in Santa Barbara

Hosted by

Southern California is spoiled with local everything: fish, meat, enough produce to choke a horse and even exotics like dragon fruit and finger lime. But coffee? We can now check that one off the list thanks to Jay Ruskey of Good Land Organics, who grows coffee in Goleta near Santa Barbara.

You can purchase coffee plants online and at the Wednesday Santa Monica Farmers Market from Ruskey’s growing partner, Jim Shanley. Find out how to care for your home coffee plant here.
