Coffee - a brewed infusion prepared from roasted coffee beans. With its ability to ''get you up", became a widely known and most consumed beverage across the globe. Containing 94.8 mg caffeine per cup makes this beverage less favorite among those whose metabolisms can't accept the after effects that this amount of caffeine usually brings.
Although both Yerba Mate and coffee are natural beverages, and have many positive benefits, having less caffeine in Yerba Mate might solve your Monday morning problem and help you seize the everyday!
