The fruits of the coffee tree grow in the form of cherries. The cascara is the pulp of the fruit and the coffee beans are the kernels. Between the cascara and the grain is a thin but tough skin called the husk.
Surprisingly, cascara does not taste like coffee, but a fruity aroma. Cascara is between tea and coffee: it comes from the coffee tree, contains 4-8 times less caffeine, but is traditionally dried and infused like a "tea".
