ACOGMAC Cascara Tea

Share this post:

Cascara tea is a popular drink in some coffee-growing nations, notably Bolivia, and in Yemen, are made up of dried skins of coffee cherries collected after the coffee beans have been de-pulped from the cherries.

This cascara is from Atok Arabica Coffee Growers Marketing Cooperative (ACOGMAC) in Atok, Benguet; renowned by coffee enthusiasts across the country for its distinctive smooth and chocolatey sweetness along with its fruity aroma. No surprise, it’s consistently been recognized since 2018 as the best Arabica coffee in the country by no other than the Coffee Congress of the Philippines.

Cascara means husk or skin in Spanish, is known to be high in antioxidants, and tastes different from coffee and has been described as somewhat sweet and cherry-flavored, surprisingly pleasant.
