This is the peel from the coffee cherry fruit, not cascara sagrada. Read more about Cascara here.
As a concentrate using the versatile French Press, appreciate natural raisin slurply notes with a herbal body from the washed processing and mix it up with your regular coffee & tonics. We prefer brewing at 65 degrees for 10 (with some stirring) to 30 mins but it is recommended to flush the cascara with boiling water before steeping at temperatures lower than 85 degrees.
Lightly brewed, be embraced by comforting vegetal notes that will keep you alert through work. Brewing the whole pulps slowly or reuse for a second steep. Blend or chop up the cascara into smaller pieces to speed by up the brewing process.
If you are making cascara cold brew, flush clean the cascara with 85-100 degrees of water for 3-5 seconds and toss the liquid away, before brewing with room temperature or cold water overnight in the fridge for 12 hours.
