Batch of Cascara and Infusion of coffee Leaves
Box of 150g
For the first time in France, Terres de Café, a pioneer in specialty coffees, is offering infused coffee leaves and cascara as an alternative to coffee.
To the eye, the pretty amber colour of rum. In the mouth, a sweet and comforting body, with notes of papaya, fresh apricot, dried fig and vanilla. A light acidity for a soft and thirst-quenching drink.
Infusion of coffee leaves :
Airy aromas of meadow flowers, delicate body on the palate, notes of white peach, daisy and honey. A vanilla and mentholated finish full of sweetness.
What is Cascara ?
Is the skin and sweet pulp that surrounds the pit of the coffee cherry. This pit, when roasted, will become a coffee bean. Fresh, the pulp is a delight with notes of grenadine, spices, pepper, guava, mango...depending on the terroir and variety. Once dried in the sun, the aromas of the pulp are enriched by the organoleptic complexity of the fermentation process. Slightly caffeinated, delicious and refined, cascara also has antioxidant and draining properties. To be enjoyed as a hot or iced infusion, but also as a simple syrup or in a pastry.
PULP is part of the sustainability strategy we are pursuing with Terres de Café's partner farms. Indeed, this new product constitutes an additional income for the farmer thanks to a diversification of his production.
What is Infusion of coffee Leaves
This infusion is made entirely from coffee leaves processed in the "white tea" style: the freshly harvested and selected leaves are dried on African beds for 18 to 24 hours under shade. They are then rolled by hand and dried in the sun. Slightly caffeinated, fine and subtle, the coffee leaf infusion also has antioxidant and draining properties.
