For a coffee bush to be successful, the climate must be subtropical or temperate. The ideal temperature for arabica is 15-25 degrees and for robusta 22-26 degrees. The coffee bush cannot withstand frost. The coffee bush requires 1000–2000 mm of rain per year, and the rains before flowering are especially important.
