Cascara, which means “husk,” “peel” or “skin” in Spanish, is the dried skins of coffee cherries. Normally, brewers or coffee drinkers consider coffee cherries as a by-product of the coffee-making process. They are either discarded as waste or used as compost. But now, these cherries can be used to produce a unique drink of their own.
Its taste is however different from that of tea with most people reporting it to have a “sweet yet fruity” taste with a distinctive tobacco and hibiscus taste intermingled in it. Some benefits of Cascara:
