Cascara is the dried husk that surrounds the coffee bean. This fascinating fruit is loaded with antioxidants and holds slightly sweet floral tea-like notes. While coffee farmers around the world discarded cascara after extracting the coffee beans, coffee farmers in Yemen took extra care of the dried husk and sold it to a sophisticated specialty local market. Various tea spices were added to the cascara creating delicious recipes.
This beverage you drink today is the product of years of product development and centuries of Yemeni ingenuity and care from farm to cup.
