I was an owner operator of a carpet cleaning business for over 20 years. The older I got the more difficult the job got. I started drinking energy drinks to get by. I found one that worked great and felt great so took a look at the ingredients. The one ingredient that made it different was "mate". Went online did some research and order my first bag (Guayaki). It came in a zip-lock bag and was pretty much dust and sticks and tasted like ceder (nothing like it does today). Hated the taste but still loved the effect, so I went back online and ordered some La Hoja and Taragui. I very quickly started buying it by the case, and was peddling it to friends.

In 2001 I started a little web site yerbamatecafe.com just as a hobby. It quickly became a dream to support myself by selling yerba mate online. After 12 years and several serious road bumps we became profitable.

Eduardo Florentin and Rick WimanIn 2008, when the economy tanked, My with and I partnered with Eduardo Florentin and Viviana Trociuk from Paraguay who founded GoYerbaMate.com in the US. With their help we have prospered.

Yerba Mate customers are the best. We are very grateful to all of them. We will continue to work hard to source quality products and accessories at the best prices.

Thanks for looking in.
