Cáscara - Coffee Cherry Tea
Cáscara, meaning ‘skin’ or ‘husk’ in Spanish, is the outer peel of the coffee cherry (berry). Sun-dried and brewed similarly to tea, cáscara has intense tasting notes of earthy rose hips, tamarind, and sweet hibiscus.
Our cáscara comes from Finca Las Delicias, one of nine farms owned or managed by the Menéndez family in El Salvador.
Committed to environmental sustainability, their coffee is shade-grown. Why do we love this product? Cáscara is loaded with flavor, vitamins, natural sugars, some caffeine and antioxidants. Brew hot, iced, or add to your favorite trail mix. One bag contains 8oz of Cáscara.
