Cascara is the dried coffee cherry skin.
As soon as the coffee beans arrive to the washing station the skins are being separated and prepared for drying. When drying is done correctly one can find notes of rosehip and dried fruits from the cascara brew.
This cascara comes from Coffea diversa garden owned by Gonzalo Hernandez, located in Southeastern Costa Rica. The crop here is fully hand harvested.
