“Coffee cherry tea”
Made from dried berries of the coffee plant!
For more than fifty years, the Guardia family has successfully been
dedicated to cultivating coffee at their beautiful Hacienda. The 100 ha
hacienda is located at the slopes of the Poás Volcano in the central
valley of Costa Rica with large parts of pristine jungle. The coffee plants
are grown under shade trees that provide lots of nutrition from the
falling leaves as well as protection against direct sunlight. They offer
an ideal microclimate for perfect growing conditions of fine quality
micro-lots. The energy at the Finca is generated by a water-driven
Pelton turbine and can therefore be considered “100% Green Energy”.
So what is Cáscara de Café? Cáscara means ‘skin’ or ‘husk’ in Spanish. The
cherries are carefully dried in the sun under constant circulation. Brewed
similar to tea, Cascara has intense tasting notes of sweet hibiscus,
cranberry, and honey. It tastes very sweet and has a high concentration
of antioxidants and vitamins B2 and E. Over the past years, Cascara has
started to receive more attention in cafés across Europe and the US. Its
uniquely refreshing flavor has even inspired some people to create soda
drinks with it. Cascara is barely exported. We are thus proud to have it on
our offer list and present you this special single-origin Cascara, traceable
directly to the producer.
