This cascara was harvested and collected from the DR Congo and is a fully washed, organic product. Cascara - the word for "shell" or "husk" in Spanish - is the dried coffee cherry hull that is normally discarded during processing. The habit of discarding the hull as a simple byproduct was found to be regrettably wasteful, because it can be prepared as a sweet and highly caffeinated tea.

We use a 1:18 ratio of cascara to hot water, and steep for at least 4 minutes. For extra clarity, use a paper filter to separate the cascara.
