Cascara in Spanish means shell or husk, and is used to describe the skin of the coffee fruit that has been removed during depulping. Coffee is a stone fruit, much like a cherry or peach. The coffee seed or pit is what we commonly call a “bean”. The fruit surrounding the seed is often called the coffee cherry, a rare treat that is uncommon in the United States.
With notes of apple juice, hibiscus, rose, dried tart cherry, rooibos tea, Cascara is best enjoyed steeped in hot water much like a tea.
We're excited to share this offering with you from Finca Santa Lucia and Finca Anonos, located in Costa Rica.
