Coffee of the Month: Colombia Matambo

Size

The landscape of Huila, Colombia is dominated by one giant mountain. Legend has it that long ago, a giant named Matambo lay to rest in Huila, forming the massive mountain that dominates the region's landscape. The nearby town is now known as Gigante, and the coffee from this area - that we’re calling Matambo - has been a giant part of our coffee lineup for the past 3 years.

The best Colombias - and particularly the best Huilas, like Matambo - pull off a balance between approachability and exciting flavors that few other origins can match. This latest crop is a perfect example of that balance, popping with green grape and plum fruitiness, but rounding out the pop with dark honey and buttery pie crust sweetness.

Matambo comes from the 82 farmer Asociación de Cafeteros el Desarollo, and association based in the town of Gigante. We had the pleasure of visiting these growers in August of 2017 with Caravela, one of our favorite sourcing partners who we work with throughout Latin America. Read more about that visit here to see why we're stoked not only for this crop of Matambo, but also the long game with these growers and Caravela in Colombia.

We think Matambo has something for everyone.  Plenty of traditional coffee flavors and sweetness for those who prefer a more approachable or milk-friendly mug, but also packing juicy, fruity flavors and high-end brightness to please folks who prefer more adventurous coffees. Year 3 of the giant from Gigante, and we’re looking forward to brewing it for the next few months!
