Our cáscara-chai is a warm and delicious blend of Lady Falcon Coffee Club's favorite Cascara combined with ginger, star anise, clove, cardamom, cinnamon & a touch of peppercorn gives you such. a. good. cup.

Cáscara is the outer husk of a coffee cherry. It’s full of antioxidants and has 1/3 the amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. The leaves can be re-steeped up to 8 times! Lady Falcon Coffee Club's sources cáscara directly from Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

The act of making cáscara is a ritual rooted in the ancient tradition of brewing tea as an expression of kindness and generosity. 

About Lady Falcon Coffee Club:

Born in San Francisco, the name Lady Falcon Coffee Club is a respectful nod to an era in San Francisco's ocean beach history. In the 1880’s, an impromptu neighborhood of abandoned street cars on Judah Street became “Carville-by-the-Sea.” Carville housed many a freethinker. The Falcon Ladies Bicycling Club was one of the first street cars in the bunch and helped shape the legend of Carville.

These women were rebels in their own way, in their own day. Ladies straddling bicycles in the late 1800’s... women couldn’t even legally vote then and were restricted by corsets and petticoats. With bicycling, a freedom of movement liberated them. They must have felt like they had wings.

With deep roots on Judah Street in San Francisco, Lady Falcon Coffee Club sought to imagine the lives of these forerunners who built the spirit of the neighborhood on a sand dune they love so well -- with recycled streetcars, grit, tenacity and a passion for fun. They found like-minded bohemians and artists and created a club in the outskirts of the City, in a new neighborhood that embraced and appreciated their quirkiness as well as their flair for originality.

Lady Falcon Coffee Club coffee harnesses that spirit of originality, as they handcraft their coffee the old fashioned way and with their own unique style—in their own way, in their own day. They hope you will love it.
