How to brew mate in an ESPRESSO MACHINE

Here's how to make a yerba mate espresso using our Gaucho Fuerte Yerba Mate.

 

 

The Gaucho Fuerte Blend is potent and robust, with toasted nutty earthy tones, and a smooth malty finish. Great in a coffee maker or espresso machine.
 
The Gaucho Blend (for a drip coffee maker) is potent and robust, with toasted nutty earthy tones, and a smooth malty finish. Gaucho's Fuerte Mate Blend brews a potent cup - "Fuerte" means "strong" in Spanish.  Brews just like espresso in a drip coffee maker.    It has a slightly larger grind than espresso.
 
How is it made?
Our Gaucho's Fuerte Mate Blend is 100% powdered yerba mate that is formed into granules that brews a rich, strong cup of mate in a coffee maker.  Simply brew in a drip coffee maker using 2-4 teaspoons of Gaucho Fuerte Blend per cup of water.
 
How much does it make?
One pound will make 30 - 96 cups of Gaucho's Fuerte Mate Blend depending on strength - see brewing notes below.   (96 teaspoons per pound 'or' 32 tablespoons per pound)
 
How to Brew
We recommend using 2-4 teaspoons of Gaucho’s Fuerte Mate blend per cup.  Place granules in your drip coffee maker, then brew.  You can add your favorite sweetener or creamer to your brewed cup according to your taste.  Add the depleted brewed granules to your garden compost.
 
Light brew -  2 teaspoons per 8 oz. of water
Medium brew - 3 teaspoons per 8 oz. of water
Bold brew - 4 tablespoon per 8 oz. of water
NOTE: (More than a tablespoon gives a darker, but more bitter taste.)
