We have videos of how to prepare mate!
To watch the videos - click the icons below.
Place yerba mate in the French press. Add hot water and steep for 3-10 minutes. We recommend using 1-2 tbsp of loose mate per cup. First, moisten the mate with cool water to protect the nutrients and flavor, then ADD HOT (NOT BOILING) WATER.
Place yerba mate in filter basket, then brew. We recommend using 1-2 tbsp of loose mate per cup. First, moisten the mate with cool water to protect the nutrients and flavor, then run the machine as usual.
Yerba mate brews well in most espresso makers. Place 1-2 tbsp of loose mate in a double espresso portafilter. Pull a long shot for a total of 4 oz. Great for making mate lattés.
Mate Latte Recipe:
Brew an 8 oz. cup of Guayakí Yerba Mate. Add sweetener (sugar, honey, or maple syrup) to taste and 4 oz. of steamed milk of choice. Top off with milk foam. Makes a 12 oz. latté.
Yerba mate is traditionally prepared in a gourd and shared among a circle of friends. Welcome the moments of community born of your own mate circle.
There's just no getting around the fact that, for me, the loose leaf organic traditional yerba mate is the smoothest deepest and last but certainly not least, most consistent experience. I order two 5 lb. bags at a time. It has always shipped promptly and without a hitch. I drink it first thing in the morning. I don't need a rocket launch but rather just a little boost to shake off the early riser cob webs.
My one complaint has nothing to do with the product but rather the pop-up video on every page I navigate to. I have to X it out over and over again and I find this intolerable. It's enough to drive me away from browzing the site altogether.

I started drinking cheap Argentine mate brands. I initially hesitated buying Guayaki due to the price difference.
When I did try Guayaki, it was like night and day. Clean, organic goodness compared to cheap, pesticide ridden mate loaded with fillers.

I've been drinking Yerba Matte for about 12 years now and have not found any better more nourishing, great tasting tea than Guayaki Yerba Matte. It's great hot, cold and anything in between. I just love it and could not be happier having it in my life.
The other companies marketing this product don't even come close to Guayaki. I've tried as many as I know about and so far yours is the very best!
Thank you so much for the quality you bring! Viva, Guayaki Yerba Matte and all the people involved in making it such a quality product. Thank You, Nancy
I simply love this product! It awakens you in more way than one. Guayaki is setting a beautiful example that businesses do not have to be destructive, degenerative or simply 'sustainable'. Regenerating the Lungs of the Earth - the forests, and the people through fair trade practices is one of the most potent nutrients in this delicious brew.
I cannot get by on coffee anymore, I am hooked on loose leaf Guayaki Yerba Mate. I buy the 5lb. bags which last a little over a month and when I go on-line and order I get my new bag in about 4-5 days and sometimes fsater. I use a french press when having it and love the flavor from this method. I will be a customer as long as possible.
....been drinking and sharing Guayaki Mate since 2001!
Infinite gratitude for the health, joy, resilience and fortitude which this
vital plant enhances....
This company continues to prove itself worthy of highest regard.
Cheers to you all from the top of my bombilla to the bottom of my gourd :-)!!!
I love this stuff. Consistently very high quality, I always look forward to my morning gourd.
Thank you for providing a quality drink!
Makes my day and gives back! Love it!
Hi, I love yerbe mate, but I drink it like a girl. haha. I have figured out the ratio of stevia/tea/ 150 degree water that I can't live without. You all would probably think it's too sweet the way I like it. But I buy it by the 5 pound pkgs. so I never run out! Thanks for bringing this gift to the world.
Thanks for being consistently great!
