Matambo is produced by a small group of dedicated coffee producers from Gigante, Huila. This region is located between the Madgalena River and the Eastern Range of the Andes Mountains, providing a unique microclimate for the production of these fantastic coffees.

The name Matambo originates from a famous myth about a warrior giant named Matambo and his love for Mirthayú, the queen of the Michués, whom he took as his lover. Matambo was so big and strong he alone could defeat entire armies, however eventually he was defeated by the Michués, who were determined to retake their queen.

These hardworking farmers live in a land steeped in myth and tradition to produce a delicious coffee.
