[Homeroast] Pruning an indoor coffee plant

Well I know that I'd like to purchase some coffee plants.  Maybe I'll have  
more luck than I had with my avocados.  15 years and 10 ft tall and 3 inch  
diameter trunk and no flowers.  It accidentally succumbed to frost a few  
years ago when I forgot to cover it.  Oh well it got quite heavy and  
unwieldy so having something of 4 or 5 feet tall would be nice.

I will make seeds available again. Maybe after my Sumatra trip in a 
few weeks. Or maybe after my Ethiopia trip in October. Something 
really interesting, from a specific farm or a specific cultivar.

Ed - not sure which is most compact, They all tend to have dwarfism 
from being in pots. The only one this is very rangy and not compact 
at all is Typica.
