Explore Coffee Beyond the Bean

In this gift bundle, we share with you coffee beans and the in-betweens!

The Ficus coffee is a fantastic example of how biodiversity-friendly farming can lead to delicious brews. The counterparts are Cascara and Coffee Flour.

Neither Cascara nor Coffee Flour taste anything like the Ficus coffee! Yet, both are crucial parts of the coffee fruit, the dried fruity pulp or husk, which envelopes the coffee bean. We were drawn to Cascara and Coffee Flour because of the wasteless angle and a desire to use literally as many byproducts of the coffee supply chain as possible. However, we are loving our discovery of these as ingredients in their own right! 

Know the Grower

The Arabica from which the Cascara and Coffee Flour come, has been grown by our partner producers in Biligirirangan Hills. This region, BRT as it is fondly known is a magnificent forest with elevational gradients that go from 800 to 1600m! The Robusta in the Ficus coffee comes from our partner producer organisation in Wayanad, Kerala. The coffee, cascara and coffee flour are all organic and grown via regenerative farming practices. 

How to Use

The Ficus is a freshly roasted coffee (not instant) and needs to be brewed using a coffee maker. 

Coffee Flour: Mocha Mug Cake

1 tbsp
coffee flour
2 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking powder 1 egg

Beat an egg till fluffy and whisk in the other ingredients till mixed together. Grease a coffee cup with coconut oil and cook in the microwave for 40-45 seconds.

Cascara: Tonic

1 tbsp
3 cups water
2 tbsp jaggery
Tonic water

Simmer the cascara, water and jaggery on medium heat for about 10-15 minutes till the volume is reduced to half. Allow it to cool, strain the mixture, and refrigerate.
To make the Cascara Tonic, add ice cubes into a tall glass, pour 90 ml of the cascara brew, the juice of half a lime and top with tonic water. Garnish with a slice of lime.
