Cascara latte is made by steeping ground cascara, which is the dried fruit that is left over after harvesting coffee beans, in either water or milk for up to 12 hours, or until all of the caffeine has been extracted into the liquid base.Cascara is a coffee byproduct that is removed when coffee beans are harvested.After that, it is combined with cream, sugar, and syrups, and it is either heated or chilled before being given to the customer.
In the Starbucks® Cascara Latte, espresso, steamed milk, and cascara syrup are combined, and the finished product is topped with velvety foam. The drink is finished with a trademark straight line of cascara topping, which is a sprinkling of cascara topping produced with cascara extract and cane sugar. This line is meant to resemble the inside of a coffee cherry.
