Some Health Benefits  

Read Here

Cascara, which means “husk” in Spanish, is the dried skins
of coffee cherries. They are collected after the coffee bean has been removed from 
the cherry, dried out then dispatched for enjoying. Cascara is full of antioxidants 
and has been known for its digestive benefits. This cascara is grown by the fourth
generation of the Homberger family. Ever environmentally conscientious, the
Homberger family has found a way to use less water than is traditionally required
for this process, producing a soft, sweet, and complex flavour. They are proudly
Rainforest Alliance Certification. Utilising sustainable farming solutions, such as 
using “Noble Herbs” to amend the soil so that it is less hospitable to weeds, they 
can provide non-toxic working conditions, making the workers, and the coffee and
cascara drinkers, much happier campers.
