Mate (gourd) camionero
This pumpking gourd MUST be pretreated (or "cured") before using. La Pachamama LTD takes no responsability for breakages or damages that may happen due to incorrect curing of the gourd or use. We will supply you with instructions to do this, and it is easy but you must do it. If you prefer an already cured gourd, browse our selection of Gauchada wooden gourds they come already treated. Otherwise we have a nice selection of glass, metal and ceramic mates that they don't need treatment.
Please be aware that pumpkin gourds may break if the water is too hot and poured directly onto the calabash. They may acquire mould (which will affect the flavour of the mate) if left wet and may break if not used for several weeks. You agree to purchase this product knowing this may happen, and that it is not our responsability to replace the gourd if it does.
