Matambo is a Colombian specialty coffee produced by a group of dedicated small scale coffee producers from Gigante, Huila. This region is located between the Magdalena River and the Eastern Range of the Andes Mountains, providing unique microclimates for the production of these fantastic coffees. The name Matambo originates from a famous myth: the love story between Mirthayú, the beautiful queen of the Michués, a native pre-Hispanic tribe, and her lover, the giant Matambo, the most valiant warrior in the region. Matambo was so strong and ferocious that he alone could fight an entire army, which he did many times to defend his own tribe from attacks. During his last battle, he lost trying to defend his right to be with the queen.
