Goodbye Sweet Caffeinated and Carbonated Goodness Uncategorized Add comments Mar 302009 We mourn the passing of the Club Mate and a cloud hangs over our hackerspace. nicolle no more club mate?! but…what is a hackerspace without club mate? how will you all stay awake to hack? Rob T FIrefly Somehow that makes me need a nap right now. atannir When you are done mourning the last bottle and have come to acceptance of its passing… why not try and synthesize a similar drink yourselves? Instead of yerba mate extract and pure caffeine, you could probably get away with some Cruz de Malta yerba mate and loose tea leaves. This might be a good opportunity for a temperature-regulated hotplate. After brewing, filter the liquid, add just enough sugar and store. To add carbonation, perhaps buy one of those old-timey seltzer bottles. At the very least, this looks like it could be a good project, regardless of the outcome.
