Did you know coffee comes from a cherry like fruit? The delicious "pit" (coffee bean) is removed and processed for roasting, while the fruit is typically used to help renourish the coffee plants. In some parts of the world though, they dry the best fruit husks (cascara in Spanish) and brew them like tea! This particular cascara comes from the Finca La Florida in El Salvador and is dried for 24 hours and carefully sorted. Delicious steeped hot or even cold brewed overnight, we are loving this for summer! Try it as iced tea, an Arnold Palmer or maybe even a mixed drink for a unique treat!

Tasting Notes: Thompson Raisin, Hibiscus

Hi, does this have caffeine?
Alfred L on Jun 9, 2016
Best Answer: Cascara does have caffeine, but it is in much less caffeinated than actual coffee beans. freshcup.com was the only place I found with any concrete data, stating that ''Surprisingly, we found the caffeine content to be fairly low. Even at the strongest, longest brew, the caffeine content of cascara came in at 111.4 mg/L, compared to broad range of about 400-800 mg/L in brewed coffee.''

Here's a link to the article: http://www.freshcup.com/what-is-cascara/
