Meta Mate Container Pre Sale

Our goal at Meta Mate has always been to provide you with the best mate possible . We started with the best that we found - the freshest and only wild Mate on the market. After this we delved into a series of research projects to discover the differences between industrial and wild produced Mate for health and taste with the Beuthe University, including a Mate Cancer Research Study launched on Inkubato. And now, armed with these results we are ready to offer you your preferred Mate in an environmentally friendly, sustainable and transparent way.

For the past two years Meta Mate customers have had to pay a high cost for their favourite Mate including 9€ per kg airmail in our costs. Beside the high costs, this shipping method contributed to CO2 Emissions and exposed our Mate to unnecessary radioativity. We are happy to say that this will soon change.

During the new moon in Mai we harvested 300kg of fresh Meta Mate which is on its way to Berlin by ship, scheduled to dock in mid-July with fresh, forest harvested, Mate in fine and leafy cuts, available in smoked and unsmoked varieties. Together with this shipment we included 3 qualities of Barao do Cotegipe, the brand of industrial Mate that tested best against PAHs (the cancerigenous substances that can be found in food).

In order to make this possible, we had to order 1000kg as opposed to 20kg, which means we have to park a larger amount of money until the Mate is sold, which is why we would like to offer you the chance to help us with a special deal. has already purchased 450kg of industrially processed from the shipment, and 100kg of a special forest harvested, usmoked, leafy Mate has been pre-sold to Leet Mate for their new 1337 recipe, but we still have 450kg left for you to drink with us!

We're missing 420€ to cover part of the initial costs and are grateful for all of the encouragement and support we receive to make this dream possible. We truly believe in the benefits of drinking Mate and are dedicated to providing you with the means to cultivate the habit in an enjoyable and economical way and look forward to celebrating the arrival of this fresh Mate in July.

The special Mate's up for grabs in different combinations are:

Meta Mate Fine – Smoked by hand powdery forest origin Mate harvested in May 2013

Meta Mate Leafy – Smoked by hand leafy-cut Mate harvested in May 2013

Meta Mate Industrial Dry – Unsmoked pure leaves High Caffeine forest-origin mate

Barao Premium – Unsmoked industrially processed Parana fine wild-origin powdery mate.

Barao Native - Unsmoked forest-origin powdery mate.

Project Creator

We are Mate Hackers based in Berlin who are researching the traditional indigenous ways of harvesting wild Mate from the forests and promoting the spirit of Mate drinking over all.

We also pride ourselves in being Mate experts and try to research as much as we can about various harvesting processes for Mate, different types of Mate and different Mate drinking rituals.
