Great Gourd

By: Chris of New York

After reading a review claiming these gourds were on the flimsy side I requested a sturdier gourd and Guayaki delivered to perfection. I've been drinking mate traditionally a few times per week now and loving it, gourd/bombilla is such an experience. The artwork looks really nice and the gourd is a great size, fits right in the palm of my hand.

Is it my imagination?

By: R. Scott Prestwood of Ft. Walton Bch.,FL

I don't know, but; I swear the new gourd I received is thinner feeling than the original. I have several gourds, including a wonderful heavy gourd with sterling rim and base that I picked up in Argentina. I actually prefer just the plain old generic gourd, but; I am a little anxious about the perceived fragility of this latest one. Maybe the Guayaki is just giving me that extra feeling of POWER! Take care you all. I have written some other reviews and I hope you understand that I am not complaining, just trying to provide honest, usable insight from a consumers perspective. I have tried many other mates over the last decade and I have been and am still a staunch advocate of your product, your philosophy and your exposed ethics. I hope you don't go corporate. I am in the Denver area visiting and I am shocked and dismayed by the overwhelming, all present, hypocritical corporate mentality of the folks and businesses around here. As old Edward Abbey fan and activist from the past I am dismayed by the shell game played by the "Whole Foods" type corporate superstores in this area in regards to their products, management style and affiliations, Please stay independent ( assuming you are independent) true to your cause.

Big Enough for Big Mate Drinkers!

By: Jeff of Costa Rica

The Gaucho Gourd looks great, has excellent craftsmanship, and most importantly has enough volume to steep the large quantity of yerba mate I like to drink.

Great Vessel

By: Lorin of Barron, WI

I have had the gaucho gourd for about a month now. I really enjoy using it. It was easy to cure and I haven't had any problems. I just rinse it out then let it air dry in between uses. The artwork is very pleasing to the eye and really adds to the Mate experience.

These are great gourds

By: jared wetherington of Inglenook, ca

do not break off the little nub that rises up from the center of the bottom on the inside when you are performing the initial scrape. i never did that b4 and my gourds always seasoned up nicely. this time i thought i would break it off. bad idea. i still use the gourd, but it developed a spongy yellow spot around the base of the broken nub. i scraped it and it seems ok, but it would be better if i hadn't broken the membrane like that
