Title
Near Soyapango, El Salvador, C.A. Cascara, a by-product of coffee, is dried with the same care and by the same method as the coffee beans. This is the outer pulp and skin of the coffee berries which is crushed away from the beans in the early part of the coffee processes. This residue is handled after the coffee harvest has been handled, and the stuff is first burned and then spread out on the drying racks of "beneficio", raked and hoed constantly to get the entire benefit of the sun's rays. This cascara is used for supplementing cattle feed, as well as for soap making. Scene at the modern beneficio (coffee-processing plant) of coffee hacienda. El Salvador
