Do you like Caffeine? Join Yerba Mate Club

In South America, it is drunk socially. You share the gourd, rather than the liquid. To prepare a mate gourd, the gourd is filled with mate leaves and then filled with warm water. You drink the liquid through a bombilla, which is a straw with a filter at the end. The cebador, who starts the gourd, fills it with water and passes it to each person.  

Yerba Mate Club| Charlie Sprinkman

In Yerba Mate Club, we join together once a week for 2 hours to drink mate and converse. It is a setting that is welcoming to all, one that allows members to stop and slow down for a bit at the beginning of the week. This semester, we meet every Wednesday morning from 11-1. Location is variable, please check Yerba Mate Club @CSU Facebook Page.
