This leafy roasted mate from Brasil has a maltier taste than traditional green Mates, with a nutty flavour which makes its an ideal coffee substitute. Roasted in a manner similar to coffee, this Mate yields an flavorful drink providing energy without jitteriness. It has a toasty, comforting chicory note that combines well with milk and sugar as well.
This Mate can be enjoyed warm as a coffee substitute, either black or sweetened with milk and sugar.
AS COFFEE SUBSTITUTE: If using a french press, use 2 Tbs Mate with 1L boiling water and let it infuse for 2-5 minutes. We recommend grinding this mate in a coffee grinder when using it in an espresso machine or filter in order to intensify the flavour. The Mateccino at Cafe 60 Degrees in Berlin, Friedrichshain is gaining fans who also purchase the mate to make at home.
Alternatively it is popular as a refreshing summer drink on the beaches in Brasil, sweetened and chilled. Be inspired by the DIY culture and make your own Mate Brause at home with this mate.
