Your hosts

We are Marcela, Tini and Tomi, three big yerba mate fans. Marcela is so passionate about mate that, together with two partners, she created "Mate & Co.", a company that gives yerba an innovative twist by blending it with herbs, spices, fruits and flowers. Tini is from Corrientes, a province where yerba is grown. This has made her an expert on how to prepare the perfect mate. Tomi is from Buenos Aires and has always been a huge mate fan. After lots of study and training, he is eager to share everything he has learned with you! Together we have given many mate tasting experiences to students from abroad. We are ready to share our expertise about this local tradition with you, so you can have a genuine taste of Argentina!
