Not Coffee.
Not Tea.
Meet Cascara.

Cascara is a delicious superfood tea.  Brewed from the dried coffee fruit, it is a natural source of caffeine.  Typically discarded during coffee production, cascara is an overlooked crop waiting to be enjoyed. We source our cascara from small farmers around the globe, encouraging environmental stewardship, fair labor practices, and fighting deforestation.

Looking at coffee with fresh eyes

 

Everyone knows coffee. It’s the second most traded commodity in the world, behind crude oil. But what do you know about how it grows? Those precious beans develop within a fruit; cascara. For years that fruit has been discarded, considered a byproduct of coffee. We think otherwise. It’s delicious. It’s chock full of antioxidants. It’s an opportunity for farmers in the developing world to earn a new source of income.
