Product Description

Cascara when translated from Spanish literally means “Shell” or “Hull”.  It is essentially a by-product of coffee production.  After the coffee cherry has been picked, the cherry is pulped to remove the bright red skin.  This pulped skin is often discarded as it is only the inner seed, the coffee bean that is normally required.

Recently though, it was discovered that this discarded cherry had some real fruity properties that was worth extracting like a tea.  So by taking these pulped skins, and drying them in the sun, we can literally create a new fruity beverage which reduces wasteage, and tastes fantastic.
