Process: Depulped & Pasteurized

Cascara is the dried fruit husk & skins of coffee cherries. These are meticulously selected, cleaned and dried carefully to keep the structure intact. Use for brewing into a tea, simple syrup, or create a floral flavor in cooking. Extracts very easily and notes of Vanilla, Oak and cherry come to the forefront. What happens when the University of Costa Rica, a food processing facility, and three coffee producers get together? It turns out they produce the cleanest cascara we’ve ever seen. Brewing the dried pulp from coffee cherries has exploded into popularity over the past few years, and in 2012 the Helsar Micromill began experimenting with producing food-grade cascara that is stable and delicious. Once the cherries are picked they’re transported the same day to be depulped and pasteurized. This pasteurization process cleanses the inside and outside of the pulp of any pathogens or debris that could make the cascara less than delicious. Once it’s dehydrated, it’s vacuum packed and shipped stateside.
