NEW LOOK – SAME CASCARA
If you’re a fan of Cascara we have some exciting new products launching soon, watch this space!
WHAT IS CASCARA?
Cascara is made by dehydrating the coffee cherry (the coffee fruit). What results is a delicious superfood high in antioxidants and packed with flavour. Enjoy as a steeped tea or dried fruit.
This particular cascara (Costa Rican 'Helsar' – Organic) is produced in a dedicated cascara facility (in collaboration with Costa Rican University); the coffee is depulped and the cherry skins are washed with clean water and go through a vaporized chamber that heats very fast and very hot to kill potential bacteria. The skins are then put into a large dehydrator and then prepared for export.
TASTING NOTES: Expect a sweet fusion of notes, including raspberry, raisins, orange, honey and subtle green tea.
FARM: Finca Santa Lucia – This farm has been certified with the following ORGANIC certifications; European organic, USDA-NOP and JAS
