Cascara, which mean "husk", "peel" or "skin" in Spanish, is the dried skins of coffee cherries. The pulped skins are then collected after the seeds (aka coffee beans) have been re-moved from the cherries, and finally they are sun-dried before being ready to brew with.
Geisha coffee from Panama has become world renowned for it's incredible quality and amongst the leading farms is the famed Morgan Estate. Producer Jamison Savage has been farming Geisha for several years and has won many awards for his commitment to producing the highest quality. This Cascara no exception!
You can brew Cascara like tea! The taste resemble sweet red dates tea and cherry, with hints of chrysanthemum floral aftertaste. High in antioxidants, and you get some caffeine kick too.
Use about 10g Cascara with about 300g boiling water. Steep for 5 minutes (or more) and enjoy. Once finished, refill with boiling water and steep again. You can repeat this process several times until the brew has lost its sweetness.
