    Aida Batlle in Costa Rica gets $1.20 per pound of bean and $7 for a pound of cascara that .contains little caffeine and has a less assertive taste than coffee. In addition to notes of hibiscus, it can have papaya or green apple flavors depending on how and where it’s cultivated.

    Of course, outfits like Starbucks are catching on and sales are increasing. I’m wondering if it might show up as a tea of some kind.

    Fits right in with the signs of the times if one takes the time to consider it all. People think there is more value in the husk than in what's truly valuable that inside in people with that breath that gives true life.
