Famous argentinian writer Julio Cortazar with his enamel mate cup
CUP´S CAPACITY : Will hold aprox 0.8oz of dried loose Yerba.
BOMBILLA´S LENGTH : 6.10″ / 15.5cm
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 measure showing above in bold is based on this suggestion.
