Bringing you the world's best cascara.
Cascara is the husk of our favorite fruit, the coffee cherry. Literally meaning “peel” or “skin” in Spanish, cascara is collected and often tossed out after the seeds (coffee beans!) are removed from the fruit. Huskwell is changing that. We think it’s time to reap the benefits of this oft-ignored but extra-special rind. With the proper drying technique and care, this humble husk can transform from a farming byproduct into a superfruit with super potential.
Fruitful impact for people and planet
It’s estimated that nearly 40% of the coffee fruit is wasted in coffee production. Imagine 40% of a product you’ve worked tirelessly to create just winding up as waste. Cascara changes that.
By using the coffee husks, we can create a powerfully positive chain reaction. Not only does cascara reduce waste, it enables coffee producers to monetize more of their coffee harvest, investing that money back into quality farming practices.
A super sippable superfruit
Cascara is packed with polyphenols and antioxidants (more than superfoods like blueberries and pomegranates!) that can help with immunity, stress, sleep, focus, and digestion.
When brewed, cascara has a slightly sweet and refreshingly tart flavor with notes of hibiscus, molasses, and dried fruit. And with less than a quarter of the caffeine content of coffee, it’s a healthy pick-me-up for any time of day.
Specialty-grade, sourced with intention
Huskwell is on a mission to share the power of cascara with chefs, bartenders, baristas, home beverage brewers, and everyone in-between. Backed by the expertise of three passionate coffee professionals and cascara advocates, Huskwell sources high-quality cascara directly from trusted producers.
