The coffee cherry is a red berry-like fruit that grows on the coffee plant. It contains the coffee bean, which is used to make coffee and is typically discarded after the bean is extracted. However, the coffee cherry can be ground to make alternative flour for use in bread and bakery products. CF Global Holdings has developed such a flour under the brand name Coffee Flour.
