What is Cascara?

Cascara refers to an infusion made of the pulp and skin of the cherry that covers the coffee bean. the cherries are sun-dried before infusion.

You'll find enjoy a light, silky, tea-like texture and the infusion develops a fruity aroma with notes of yellow fruit, fresh almond, plum and candied fig. Cascara is renowned for its antioxidant, laxative and draining properties.

Origins of Finca Las Lajas Cascara

This Cascara comes from the Las Lajas farm in Costa Rica's San José region. Cascara is harvested from coffee trees growing at altitudes of between 1,300 and 1,500 metres above sea level, where it develops its particularly fruity notes. If you choose to drink it hot, you'll enjoy a smooth texture with hints of almond. When brewed cold, it'll develop fruitier notes such as apricot.
