Coffee plants

Mike, I bought 2 plants from you about three years ago. The plants are doing fine, I just had to re-pot them into much bigger pots as they were becoming root bound in the old ones. One is a little over three feet tall and the other is just under three feet. Today I noticed my first coffee bean, (still haven't seen a blossom, but must have had one). My question for you is, as they are becoming too large for the spot I have been keeping them, can I put them on my sun porch which is unheated but doesn't get much below 45 degrees in the winter, and have them be alright? How warm do you keep your green house in the winter? I know you told me they shouldn't go below 65 degrees, but I still think that in their natural habitat in the mountains of Columbia etc., they must go below that. I am thoroughly enjoyed raising "The Boys" as I call them.
