Cascara is the dried coffee cherry skin processed specifically to be steeped as an herbal tea. While most coffee cherry skin is removed during processing and turned into fertilizer, the Helsar de Zarcero mill in Costa Rica specifically separates specific coffee lots into their cascara mill line in order to cleanly process cascara.
Helsar de Zarcero removes the coffee cherry skins, washes them, pasteurizes them, and dehydrates them in a sterile environment, making this some of the cleanest cascara available.
We recommend steeping 18-20g cascara with 12oz of water just off the boil for 5 minutes. If you'd like to try it cold, we recommend brewing a double strength dose and pouring over ice.
