From the precious Geisha Plant
The dried coffee cherry is often used to brew up a delicious fruit tea in countries of coffee origin. We found our Geisha Cascara from Carmen Estate, Panama, to be particularly tasty.Cascara has a lot less caffeine than coffee itself.
Carmen Estate is located in the Volcan Valley, Chiriqui, Panamá, at an altitude of 1800 mts. They have been producing and exporting high quality Arabica coffee for over 50 years. The coffee plants grow on steep hills, under century old rain forest vegetation and with natural springs and creeks crossing the property, providing a great habitat for local fauna.
Carmen takes care at every stage of harvesting and processing to maintain optimum results. Safe and healthy conditions for workers and their families and environmentally friendly production practices. Each day during the harvest, the ripe, bright red coffee cherries are transported from the field to the mill to be processed as quickly as possible. Advanced, low water usage machinery washes away the skin, pulp, and mucilage from the parchment bean. The residues from the milling process are recycled into the farm as organic fertilizer instead of releasing them into the environment at concentrated levels.
Carmen Estate offers a high consistency in the quality of their coffee year after year. One proof of this is the fact that they have been consistently placed in the top 5 in a number of specialty cupping contests for the past years.
