Topic: El Salvador Cascara Coffee Tea (3 msgs / 103 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Just received ours and brewed a small press, about 10min steep (steeped
while Bry making 3 lattes for customers:). First, I totally disagree it
needs or wants any sweetener at all. Could be because did fairly strong
steep of 8gr in 12oz press pot, full boil water. Seems plenty sweet all on
it's own to us, almost too sweet, but only almost. Tom's fruit descriptors
spot on. Very interesting coffee tea cup. It would make a hellacious iced.

2) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
Good comments - I think we have found need for a little sweetness 
because it has a fairly sour fruit in the finish, at least the way we 
are making it - maybe its just not strong enough! -t

3) From: Andy Thomas
miKe,
I plan to add Cascara to my next order. Meanwhile, in your opinion, how does 
Cascara compare to the Qishr that SM offered in the past? By the description, it 
seems more fruity and complex.
