University of Illinois studies showed that bioactive compounds found in one cup of maté can disrupt abnormal cells, at least in the lab. Researchers exposed these cells to derivatives from yerba maté. They found that the out-of-control cells self- destructed due to DNA damage from the derivatives, and that these same compounds also reduced important markers of inflammation. University of Montreal study with rats showed a 68% reduction in specific disease rates.
For optimum quality: The recommended shelf life for fresh roasted beans is one month.
Our supplier grows this awesome organic coffee on rugged mountain slopes of the Andes Mountains between 4-6 thousand feet. The taste offers a hint of honey and dried cherry. It is medium roasted and has an intense deep somewhat fruity taste due to its close proximity to other fruit tree varieties nearby. It is a delicate but rich coffee that is full-bodied, mellow with a nutty flavor and satisfying taste, a soft acidity with great balance, topped off with a pleasant semi-sweet finish.
It is one of the highest quality South American coffees available. This coffee is very rich with nutty aroma, notes of lemon peel, cinnamon, and carob coming from the Arabica bean type.
Your farmers diligently grow and work to improve the quality of their coffees and their organic farming cultivation practices. This organic coffee is grown without the use of harmful pesticides, harvested by hand, and dried on raised bed patios, which are consistently tended to; this ensures even drying and an even roast. We recommend blending your beans after home-grinding with our Heavenly Mate at a rate of 50/50 for starters. You can then adjust the ration to suit your own taste and/or health benefits desired.
