Here is a cute miniature in the Cattleya tribe. Pictured with my hand for approximate scale. It is in a 2 inch (5 cm) basket with small bark (The 3 inch/7.5 cm terracotta pot is just for weight) Flowers are about 1.75 inches (4.5 cm), spikes 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm). It has been growing on my patio for about 2 1/2 years, so clearly it's pretty forgiving of conditions in general. I suspect that it could grow mounted if it had enough humidity, like in a terrarium.

Not that easy to find, but I have been seeing them around (like on eBay) occasionally.

I would love to get one but not easy to find around here. Also, it favours cool temps which might be a problem here.

That would easily fit in my available space. And if it likes it a bit cooler than the 90 plus I get in the summer, I can always keep it inside. And Wikipedia has it in the Epidendroidea tribe. I don't know, but that's what I read.

Edit to add: I found this thread from 2008 here that places it in Pleurothallid.

I think it might like it a bit cooler... last year I had 5 spikes but 3 blasted (and I think we had a hot spell) This summer has been quite cool - some heat during the day but cooler nights. The plant can handle some heat I think but no guarantees on the flowers. It is native to the Blue Mountains of Jamaica at elevations from 1000-1600 m. So tropical, but higher elevation. (That's where some very good, and very expensive, coffee comes from as well)

I think I have mentioned that I am a coffee snob. I keep a blend that includes Jamaica Blue Mountain. Good stuff, but not worth (to me) the going rate. Also, I edited my last post.

Checked on IOSPE ... so more current than the reference in the 2008 thread:

Neocogniauxia Schltr. 1913 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Laeliinae

So at least for now, it is indeed in the Cattleya tribe. (Jay Pfahl pretty much stays on top of current views of taxonomy)

There are several depending on what you like. Starbucks is probably the worst coffee shop to get coffee in. Find a local mom n pop shop. They generally know more about coffees than the transients at Starbucks.
Back to the beans. Espresso is not a bean, but a roast. A very dark roast. You can use a good French roast or Italian. The coffee from the west coast of Italy (known as the Amalfi Coast) is a very pleasant roast and will make an excellent espresso. I use it to make a traditional cup of coffee. I don't know what kinds of stores are present in Key West, but if you can find a World Market, they stock several types of coffees from around the world. I like Tanzanian Peaberry. I also am fond of central American coffees. I tend to stay away from Brazilian, but that is a personal preference. I would be happy to give you more information if you would like. It is one of my life's simple pleasures that I don't take for granted.

Get yourself to a Cuban coffee shop. Also learn how to make Cuban coffee. It traditionally has sugar added before serving but that't not necessary if you don't want it.
