The ultimate win-win-win beverage!
Cascara is the husk of our favorite fruit, the coffee cherry. Literally meaning “peel” or “skin” in Spanish, cascara is collected and often tossed out after the seeds (coffee beans!) are removed from the fruit. But it doesn't have to be wasted!
Packed with polyphenols and antioxidants (more than superfoods like blueberries and pomegranates!), these coffee husks can be brewed much like a tea, creating a delicious and healthy beverage!
When brewed, cascara has a slightly sweet and refreshingly tart flavor with notes of hibiscus, molasses, and dried fruit. And with less than a quarter of the caffeine content of coffee, it’s a perfect pick-me-up for any time of day.
We source the highest-quality cascara for our iced cascara tea thanks to our partners at Huskwell!
