Coffee Cherries

Do people do anything with the actual cherry part of the plant? Can you eat them like normal cherries?

    Yes! They either use it as compost or, sometimes, they dry it out and make "cascara" - which is a tea-like drink with some really nice honey notes to it.

    Wormhole Cafe in Wicker Park, Chicago serves Cascara tea, made from the cherries of coffee beans. It's pretty good.
