Espresso yerba mate
Guayak? Sustainable Rainforest Products has introduced the first espresso yerba mate designed for preparation in a coffee maker. Gaucho's Fuerte Mate Blend is made from organic rainforest yerba mate leaf, powder and stemlets processed into a very fine grind and then formed into tiny granules. The conversion allows for better extraction in a drip coffee maker and a richer, stronger brew of Espresso Mate than previously available via the coffee-machine method, the company says. Yerba mate contains 196 active compounds including 24 vitamins and minerals, 15 amino acids, and 11 polyphenols and saponins.
