Guatemala La Bolsa Cascara

Write a Review
Tasting Notes:
Peach, strawberry & cherry fruit medley, hints of citrus & a delicate jasmine finish
coffee cherry tea, shade grown
We have been working with Maria Elena & Renardo Ovalle Vides' Finca La Bolsa in Guatamela for 3 years now. We are super excited to not only have coffee from the Vides' this year, but also their dried coffee cherries, known as cascara!

The dried fruit of the coffee cherry, known as cascara, makes a delicious tea. 
Add 16g cascara to a loose leaf teabag and steep in 400g water just off-boil for 4 mins. For a more delicate brew, use 12g cascara; for a more fruity brew, use up to 20g cascara.
