You Won't Believe It - But There's Coffee Growing in Hyannis!

Remember, we had a local food report about a persimmon tree? We asked you to contact us about other strange or different plants you've seen growing locally?  

Well, we got an email from a guy down in Hyannis – Andrew Todoroff – who was growing his own coffee trees... and nobody believes him.  So we went to check it out and sure enough...

You can find Andrew's tree at the Rendezvous Cafe in Hyannis ....
