Dear sir

Thank you

So it turns out that coffee and avocados can be grown in similar environments. Neither do well with freezing temperatures as many deciduous trees enjoy. Both avocado and coffee are perennial evergreens and want conditions that are not too hot and not too cold. In the case of better quality coffees and the Mexican and Guatemalan avocado races (Hass in a Mexican X Guatemalan cross) they dont like high humidity. So higher elevation coffee growing areas in Costa Rica and Colombia, Kenya,are also great growing areas for Hass. They also like similar neutral soil conditions and good quality water. Avocado is a bigger plant and can shade coffee. In some cases this can be good. They do have different cultural requirements and those need to be considered before interplanting them.
