While we all know what coffee is (I hope), there is another, less popular coffee drink in town that not a lot of people know about. So here is our brief rundown about Cascara.
That cherry like a lot of fruit is very sweet and delicious, so instead of throwing it out farmers started drying it in the sun and brewing tea out of it. The dried cherry became known as Cascara which translates to ‘husk’ in Spanish.
Even though it comes from the same fruit, Cascara and coffee taste completely different. They both have caffeine (Cascara only has approximately ¼ of the caffeine that coffee has) but that is where the similarities end. Cascara has very little to no bitterness and is very sweet (if brewed correctly), it is often compared to herbal tea rather than coffee. Cascara is something that every coffee drinker and non coffee drinker should try at least once, it will definitely surprise you in a good way.
