This year we're bringing back cascara from Guatemala in finer grind for you to bring out the bright, full flavours nice and fast.
We all love a roasted, aromatic coffee, but little did we know that the outer layer of the coffee cherry was so fruity, sweet, and delicious. With notes of rose hip and plum, rediscover coffee through our cascara tea. Compared to its beans, cascara contains only 1/4 to 1/8 of caffeine and is also rich in polyphenols.
Cascara has long been seen only as a byproduct and has been treated as production waste. By appreciating cascara's juicy deliciousness by drinking it, you can also reduce water pollution and help coffee producer's business even more. Definetly a win-win for everyone!
We source our cascara from GOOD COFFEE FARMS, a small-scale producers’ co-op in Guatemala. Their CEO, Mr. Carlos Melen traveled to Japan then moved to Hokkaido, the north end of Japan, and has been establishing a wonderful network between coffee producers in Guatemala and Japanese consumers, to promote a sustainable coffee production.
