Looking for an alternative to coffee but not really into tea? 42 is the answer!
This organic certified roasted mate has a malty taste and lends itself to be used as a substitute in your favourite coffee recipes.
According to Mate fan Daniel who also enjoys a good cup of coffee:
As “a lot of people begin to explore high quality filter coffee these days, which basically tastes a lot like tea. So if you are looking for a similar roasty taste with a mate sidekick, the roasted mate would definitely be worth a try.”
Daniel’s tips for preparing the Mate with his Rancilio Silvia coffee machine.
‘I ground the roasted mate a bit finder and I adjusted the temperature to roughly 65-70 °C. It tasted nice, very mild, slight smoky/grassy flavour not as bitter as I expected. However, there is still room for improvements/adjustments, I suppose. Also, I must say I have not had many varieties of roasted mate yet to compare it to. For me it was at first not easy to get accustomed to it, because what I usually expect from the machine is an intense and oily flavour explosion in Espresso. The mate plays, so to say, in a different genre.’
