September 2005 - A Short Note From The Desk of Dan. . .


We're starting to experience some cool Autumn days and chilly nights here in the Northwest. Personally, I've been transitioning from drinking my Iced Mate blends to regularly consuming a warm cup of mate throughout the day. Depending on where you live, you may be going through the same change.

Yerba Mate continues to make inroads into the North American market. Many cafes and retailers have noted a steady increase in sales of yerba over the past year. We've also noticed the frequency of newspaper and magazine articles pertaining to mate continues to climb. The media is starting to pick up more press releases from the mate industry. In fact, a writer for the Houston Chronicle shared the same feeling in a recent article entitled, "A cup of culture: Yerba Mate moves beyond fad status and into the American mainstream".

When we announced our new Java Mate earlier this month, we had a number of folks place orders. I hope you're all enjoying the new product. Speaking of "NEW", we're contemplating offering an Auto-Ship program to our customers. We know everyone probably leads busy and hectic lives, so we want to make your yerba experience much easier by streamlining the ordering process for you. This program would save you the hassle of having to visit our website to select our product(s) and then fill out the order form with your credit card information everytime you needed to place an order. The auto-ship program would allow you pick which product you'd like for us to ship you every month, and we'd automatically charge you based on the billing information you provide us. Before we implement such a program, we'd like your input! Please take a moment to respond to this brief survey (1 question!)....

Only 1 week left to take advantage of the low free shipping threshold. Starting October 1, we'll be raising the free shipping order minimum to $35.

Until next time, take a deep breath, greet the world with a smile, and have a nice warm cup of yerba...
