The beauty of a coffee estate in flower is of a very fleeting character. One day it is a snowy expanse of fragrant white blossoms for miles and miles, as far as the eye can see, and two days later it reminds one of the lines from Villon's Des Dames du Temps Jadis.
Where are the snows of yesterday?
The winter winds have blown them all away.
All About Coffee
By William Harrison Ukers

The tree was now in its full bloom and ripeness, exhibiting conical forms of about six feet in diameter, with leaves of a glossy green, acuminate, and slightly indented. The fruit grew from the bark about the size and shape of a cranberry. The branches were loaded, like the arms of an oriental beauty, with beads of every tint. Some with the beautiful white flower, similar to our white jessamine, in continuous clusters on the top of the horizontal branches; others with the fruit of every shade, from the palest green to emerald, then the rose, the crimson, and last of all a chocolate-brown the sign of maturity. When to the refreshing shade and stately appearance of the bucaris, and the graceful foliage of the coffee-tree, is added the exceeding fragrance of the coffee-flower, frequently perfuming the air for half a mile or more, the thick velvety turf beneath them, studded with flowers of the mosi gorgeous colors, and adorned
with little rivulets, deemed necessary to convey moisture to the roots of the plants, nothing can be more beautiful.

And now we exchange Tea for Coffee. We are going down into the great valley of Dikoya. Descending the hill our Arab steeds show some reminiscence of their old desert fire, and we actually have to restrain their eager impetuosity. This is King Coffee's home. Here he does not appear consumptive or sickly. This is the blossoming time, and oh!—one cannot help an ejaculation at such a time, in such a place—oh, what a sight this Dikoya valley is in the coffee blossom!
"It's like snow." said the New Zealander; "well, I've never seen anything like this, even in New Zealand!"
What more can be said? It is like snow, but is without the monotonous white of snow. You look over miles of the beautiful dark green laurel of the coffee flecked with this rich blossom, and interspersed with clusters of cinchona trees on either side of the river, which runs down the whole length of the valley. It is not only the seeing faculty which is appealed to, but the air is laden with the fragrant perfume of the coffeeflower, and as we sit behind the "children of the desert," who trot along now (down-hill) as if impelled by old associations or by some hereditary instinct, we indulge in dreamy thoughts of "Araby the blest."

Coffee blossoms about six times a year, and it blossoms exceedingly freely. The sight of a coffee plantation when in flower is well worth witnessing, and the sight of several hundred acres in blossom once seen is to be remembered a lifetime. The perfume is strong, and the plantation is a paradise for bees and similar insect*. This is so well recognised in India that the coming of bees at blossoming time is regularly looked for as the omen of the crop that is to be obtained afterwards. The transportation of bees from one part of the country to another has been mentioned. Bee-keepers here may know the large bee of India, which produces an enormous amount of very fine honey. These bees seem to know by instinct that the time of the blossoming is about to arrive. They appear in countless numbers, swarming on the trees, cliffs, and rocks near the coffee estate, and will stay there apparently, especially waiting for the coffee blossoming, for they get away when it is over.
