Cascara (dried coffee cherries), El Salvador

We're very excited to finally have some Cascara in house! Cascara is the skin of the coffee cherry, dried, sorted and cleaned and ready for brewing much like tea. This Cascara comes from legendary female coffee producer Aida Batlle. Aida is a long time friend of ours and has been producing coffee most of her life in El Salvador and more recently assisting other producers world wide. To brew the cascara steep 16 grams in 16 oz boiling water for 8 min. The result is a caffeinated tea like beverage with notes of cherry, cider and caramel. Enjoy!
