coffee’s a fruit and has two parts…
THE BEAN actually not a bean, but a 2-headed seed.
THE FRUIT a juicy pulp that surrounds the bean, called cascara, or as we call it, “coffee fruit.”
Instead of enjoying this superfruit, for generations it’s been piled in the back corners of farmers’ plantations, dumped in waterways, and sent off to landfills, wreaking havoc on the environment by damaging soils and water tables, killing off fish and aquatic life, and producing methane gas equivalent to 31B lbs of carbon dioxide annually. That’s the same level of emissions as 3 million automobiles in a single year.
