Coffee Fruit (Cascara)

Did you know the coffee "bean" is actually the seed of the coffee fruit, aka coffee cherry? Normally, the juicy red flesh of the coffee cherry is composted, since it's the seeds we're after.

But the fruit is sweet, fragrant, and delicious--not to mention packed with a ridiculous amount of antioxidants. When properly prepared, the dried coffee fruits can be brewed into an incredibly refreshing, fruity, floral beverage with a delightful tang, potent antioxidant power, and one-quarter the caffeine of regular coffee. Or mix coffee fruit (cascara) together with coffee for an ultimate whole-coffee-cherry experience!

We are excited and proud to bring you these premium coffee fruit products. As always, we source our products directly and have full traceability and accountability. Heirloom Coffee is a family business and we take great personal pride in offering you only the very best.
