  Coffea Arabica Frostbiteca ;)  Or Coffea Arabica Toosmallapottica ;)  ;)

Truthfully, it was many years before mine got unwieldy, and the 
frostbitten one is still not that bad.  Maybe 3' tall.  Healthy but 
lags behind the other one.  And as I am learning, they can be pruned 
to keep them under control.  Unless Tom makes specific varietals 
available, I think you have to take whatever you can get?
