Subject: Cascara and caffeine
 

Hi folks,

I was curious if anyone has seen any hard data on the levels of caffeine in cascara. I have read varying speculative claims that it  has less, equal, or more caffeine than coffee. However, I havent seen any references to actual hard data to back up any of these claims. Its typically handed down information or personal experience. I spoke with a friend who is a chemistry prof and we gameplanned a way to do it. However, I wanted to see if I am simply missing something. Obviously I would imagine that the levels will depend on the preparation style. Anyone out there can point to something more definitive?

Thanks

MJ

Cascara is a Coffee Berry Tea from the berries or cherries of coffee plant. This contain caffeine as does the tea but the caffeine level is minimal. Unlike coffee, no stimulant effect will be felt. The taste is sweet and cherry flavored.

When you brew cascara, try hot coffee since it contain much or more caffeine than it's a cold one.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.
