Dried compote may be cool, but have you ever drunk geisha compote?
We’ve had coffee from Julio Melendez, the owner of the El Zapote farm, several times, but we ordered his cascara for the first time. Cascara doesn’t come here very often, so it’s a little compote celebration. The picture is completed by the fact that it is cascara with geisha, which means rich.
Cascara is a dried fruit made of coffee cherries and is neither coffee (although technically it is – it is a fruit, after all, and a grain is a stone …), nor a tea. Actually, if not for the brewing method, this compote would be the closest association.
