Cascara (infusion of coffee cherry pulp) from the Pacamara coffee variety.

Our cascara is directly sourced from the farmers of the Jinotega region in Nicaragua (direct trade).

Our cascara tea is unique because it is made exclusively from the ripest cherries of the Pacamara coffee variety, grown biodynamically. Those cherries are only harvested once the cherry has reached a certain degree Brix.

Infused as a tea (5 minutes with water at 92 ° C) or coldbrew (infusion with cold water from 12 to 18h leaving in the fridge), our cascara Pacamara with an impressive sweetness reveals delicious notes of tamarind, honey, apricots and cinnamon. In addition, it has a very smooth and pleasant body. We suggest a ratio of 8 g of cascara for 300ml of water. The cascara can be reinfused up to 3 times.

After several months of drying and preparation, groups of Jinotega women separate the coffee beans from the dried cherry pulp.
