Ricardo Lorenz – The inspiration or The God Father – Meta Mate Brasil
Growing up with Mate, Ricardo started to produce craft Mate do Alemao (German Mate) in 2005 as a hobby in homenage to his grandfather on his ancesteral property which contained several hectares of native Mate forests.
He is responsbile for overseeing Meta Mate’s integrity and growth in Brasil and keeps us rooted to the original goals of reforestation and preservation of craft production
The Linha Lorenz is where the first Meta Mate harvests took place in 2009 and where we started with reforestation with the support of Club Mate.
A Gaucho Brasileiro, Fabricio, goes to live in Germany and gets inspired by the German Gaucho, Ricardo. He meets a Paraguayan Gaucho, Derek, living in Texas, who drinks craft Meta Mate, and gets inspired to apply the Guarani mate making skills from Meta Mate to process the North American native Yaupon .
