Traditional drink from south of Brazil: "Mate"
Dec. 2016 • Couples
Mate is a type of herbal infusion (some call it "tea" as well), very typical from the south region of Brazil. I always wondered how the European immigrants that settled there acquired the tradition of drinking it during the whole day.
Actually the habit came from the Indians from that region, and then was assimilated by immigrants.
The whole process of preparing the "mate" is explained in a very brief tour. Tickets are purchased in the wooden cabin in the other side of the road. Care for more details? Visit them!

The family here is so receptive and the place is kind of bucolic. Not a fan of mate but I like it!!!

Owner took us on a tour - showing us the 100 year old equipment they make the mate on - very interesting.
Afterward we also did some mate tasting.
I'd highly recommend stopping for a visit if you are in the area.

The art of drinking mate
Sep. 2014 • Couples
Er a-mate Ferrari is one of the stops on Camino de Pedra. The water wheel is lovely and still functional to cut the mate. Paula spoke English well and explain how to prepare the mate, building the wall. Adding warm water first so as not to burn the leaves then add hot water and offer to your guest. Never stir or add sugar. Everyone shares the same straw and it's ok to make a slurpy noise at end. Your host will know you enjoyed.

A must when visiting the Caminhos de Pedra region
Jul. 2013 • Family
When you are travelling through the Caminhos de Pedra region with charming old houses from the Italian colony, don't miss this place, just at the end of Sao Pedro village.
From the outside, when you see the waterwhell, it looks first like a flour mill.
But when you enter, you will find out what it is really about.
A local family is producing the Erva Mate for the famous Gaucho "Chimarrao" drink.
A guide is showing the interesting process, from the leaves, until the ready erva mate. A very interesting process. The waterwheel is being used for a cutting machine where the leaves a cut into powder. This older machine, dates from 1920.
On the other side of the road the family has a small modest shop where they sell their product and some souvenirs. It's no a tourist trap at all, but a place worth to visit and contribute to this family.
