Mexico Finca Aurora SHG CASCARA
Cascara is the dried cherries of the coffee plant which when brewed produce a delightfully refreshing caffeinated beverage. Easily brewed in a cafetiere or teapot Cascara produces an interesting myriad of flavours ranging from blackcurrants and cherries to rosehips and hibiscus. Traditionally the drink of the coffee pickers themselves, Cascara has become renowned world wide as an alternative to both tea and coffee and also boasts a wealth of antioxidants. Research also suggests that it contains relatively lower caffeine levels, just over a quarter of the caffeine content of brewed coffee. Cascara also benefits from a longer brewing time, about 5-8 minutes with water that is around 90°. We suggest using around 5g per 8oz cup and can be enjoyedhot or iced. Also ginger and/or cinnamon can be added for a take on the historic Yemeni drink Qishr.
