Just wondering, I have this friend who tends to drink 4 cups of coffee a day.  If this friend was to want to grow his own coffee to replace his store bought coffee, how much space would this friend have to grow out in coffee plants?  This friend really would love to know.  I He can quit any time....but he won't.  This friend thanks you in advance!

Not sure I'll ever get to harvest these, but I'm planting bitternut hickory as an oil crop.  The tannins are not water soluble so the oil just tastes like nice hickory oil.  

UPDATE:  Opps, sorry.  I just wanted to fix my mis-type.  "the tannins are NOT OIL SOLUBLE".  They just stay in the water portion and out of the oil.
Nature does "perpetual" motion all the time.  Diffusion, electrons traveling around in their orbitals, planets zipping around their stars.  It's just a question about how to make a device.  No, I'm not saying I have any ideas for this
Perpetual motion is one thing, getting work out is quite another.

William, I forgot to reply about the pot size.  If the 4" pot has a bunch of roots that have grown out to the pot walls and are then growing along the walls, I'd definitely step it up to a larger pot.  Most plants I have gotten in 4" pots have been ready for up potting.
