GOURD´S CAPACITY : Will hold aprox 2oz of dried loose Yerba. (2.5″ H x 3.5″ W)
Each mate gourd / cup should be filled with Yerba a little over 2/3 of its capacity. Remember to leave a slight slope and insert the bombilla at the bottom of the slope. Once the bombilla is in place, you are ready to carefully pour the water (remember not to let your water boil) for each serving. The 2oz measure showing above in bold is based on this suggestion.
