I am surprised that we do not have a thread on this on Wazua considering that tea and coffee are some of Kenyas biggest exports.

So to start off:

How long does it take from planting a tea bush or coffee tree till you start harvesting?

Once it starts to produce does it continue producing forever or do you at some point have to cut them and replant?

What is the yield per acre?

What are the costs associated with the crops? Other than labor do they need pesticides, fertilizers etc?

Do you register with a tea factory or coffee miller or how else can you sell your produce?

Specifically for coffee; Is it possible to dry and roast your own coffee beans? Tea looks more complicated but coffee looks easy and straightforward. What am I missing? Why don't people do it?

For those who have been doing this for long, what are the returns like?
