PUERTO MATE® Puro
This is real Mate from South America and is traditionally cold-brewed using the tereré method. Therefore PUERTO MATE® is particularly aromatic and invigorating.
REAL as it gets
PUERTO MATE® is like a sunrise by the sea, a swim under a waterfall or a journey to a faraway land – refreshingly real. Mate as energising and stimulating as the South Americans have been enjoying it in convivial gatherings for centuries. And we truly mean it when we say original cold-brew mate – because the so-called tereré is traditionally consumed on hot summer days.
Genuinely South American
For our PUERTO MATE® we use only the best ingredients – and they are sourced directly from South America. The subtropical climate and the particularly fertile soil allow the Yerba Mate grow under the best conditions and ensure the highest quality. We are particularly proud of our Yerba Mate – because it is a specially created version and comes from our plantation in Puerto Esperanza, Argentina. That's why there was only one name for our Mate only one name came into question: PUERTO MATE®.
On 25 September 1926, the Swiss agronomist and engineer Gustavo Keller, accompanied by Alfonso Scherer, Enrique O. Bucher and Gustavo Ernst, travelled to Puerto Esperanza in Argentina, a traditional yerba cultivation area Mate. Using special agricultural techniques, they succeeded in cultivating the stimulating plant, which not only laid the foundation for PUERTO MATE®, but also for a town with almost 18,000 inhabitants today.
