WHAT IS CASCARA? The fruits of the coffee tree grow in the form of cherries. Cascara is the pulp of the fruit, and coffee beans are the kernels. Surprisingly, the 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 traditionally it is dried and infused like a "tea". Very rich in antioxidants, Cascara has an ORAC value of 343900, ranking 4th in the world in the list of superfoods, 80 times stronger antioxidant than goji.

Kofi Ti is the first cold brew and craft soda workshop in Romania. And as the history of any place begins with a story, ours has been woven from the beginning around tastes and aromas, nature and simple rediscovered things, being a story inspired by travel and driven by the pleasure of creating.
Kofi Ti is about long searches for the best ingredients, brought to our workshop in Buftea from all over the world, processed according to our own recipes, so that the artisan drinks we produce offer the properties of the raw materials from which they are made.
Tastes collected in the Kofi Ti workshop from all over the world
We have been following our passion since 2016, inventing and producing artisan drinks with new, surprising tastes, using original recipes and only natural raw ingredients from all over the world - Colombia, Bolivia, Italy, Madagascar, Ecuador, India, China or Sri Lanka.
One by one, at the workshop in Buftea, we have created a wide, original and varied range of natural artisanal drinks, without added dyes, preservatives or flavors, using only the highest quality ingredients, most of which were introduced for the first time on the Romanian market .
Cascara - the ingredient we invite you to discover with us.
We fell in love with cascara (the pulp of the coffee cherry), one of the most powerful natural antioxidants, from which we make Cascara Lemonade. Moreover, we are probably the only producers of quinine tree bark tonic water, a natural antiviral.
Teas inspired by Chinese traditions and coffee roasted just right
We went back to the origins to create a kola nut soft drink - Kola Tonic. We make delicious Cold Brew Coffee from coffee freshly roasted at Sloane Coffee Roastery and package carefully selected and important specialty teas directly from small producers in Yunnan, China, the region with the richest tea processing tradition.
Ready-to-drink and ready-to-mix craft beverages
We managed to build from scratch a range of unique craft drinks on the Romanian market, ready to drink and ready to mix , according to your own preferences. We invite you to discover their secrets, because in each product page we have useful information regarding: the ingredients used, their origin, as well as our work processes. All this, so that you can take home the most suitable craft drinks.
