Cascara could be described as a “blend” of coffee and tea but tastes more or less reminiscent of tea. These are dried peels of coffee strawberries, which leave a pleasant fruity-sweet taste when extracted with cold or hot water. Cascara is a mild caffeinated beverage as it contains several times less caffeine than coffee and is, therefore, suitable for many refreshing drinks. In addition, many people prepare it instead of morning green or black tea. Due to the high antioxidants and low caffeine content, many people feel more “fresh” and with much more energy after drinking cascara.
The farm where Cascara comes from is called Alcatraz, from the Huila region of Colombia. The coffee is grown on 5 hectares. They grow Typico, Bourbon, Geisha, and Cattura at an altitude of somewhere between 1700 -1800m. It is a small family farm that has been producing coffee for over 20 years. The farm is also involved in cupping. They also set up a cupping laboratory years ago, where they carefully examined each of their coffees to improve the quality of their crop constantly.
