Crafted using dried coffee cherries removed from the seeds, Cascara is a natural by-product of coffee processing and a nutrient-rich superfruit.
Enjoy as a steeped tea. Serve hot or chilled.
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.
