PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT COFFEE, IT'S DRIED COFFEE CHERRY.

This cascara comes from Vincent Paye in Bolivia and has a strong aroma of honey. It tastes like cocktail cherries and cooked strawberry jam, and then there's some black pepper on the finish. As it cools, the flavour turns towards Earl Grey tea.

Cascara is the dried fruit from the coffee 'cherry', the seed of which is the coffee 'bean' as we know it. Normally cascara is a waste product or, at best, is used to fertilise the ground by being broken down. But it can also be used to brew a delicious and refreshing caffeinated drink.

So what do you need to brew it?

  • A tea pot or a French press, or something along those lines.
  • Some scales (everyone really should have bought some by now).
  • Some cascara.
  • A kettle with water.
  • A cup.

Follow the simple steps just below.

  • Step 1: Boil the kettle and let the temperature drop to 90 degrees c .
  • Step 2: Weigh out the cascara – you will need a ratio of 24g of cascara per litre of water.
  • Step 3: Add the water.
  • Step 4: Wait for 4 minutes.
  • Step 5: Heat the cup or mug that you would like to use.
  • Step 6: Pour and enjoy.

Cascara is high in caffeine, and if consumed in large amounts it will give you a buzz. So you have been warned!

Life is too short for bad cascara!
