Description: We love the balance of approachability and jaw-dropping flavors that great Colombian coffees can exhibit, and we’re excited to roast another round of Matambo. This latest crop is a wonderful example of the crowd-pleasing, but complex flavors we love from Colombia. We taste dark honey and creamy cashew, popped up a notch with subtle plum and green apple fruit flavors.
This is our second year roasting Matambo, grown by the 82 farmer Asociación de Cafeteros El Desarollo in Gigante de Huila. Legend has it that a giant named Matambo lay to rest outside of the town, forming the massive mountain that dominates the region’s landscape. Hence the names of Gigante for the town, and Matambo for this lovely coffee.
We had the pleasure of visiting Gigante and some of the Matambo growers in August of 2017 with Caravela, one of our favorite sourcing partners who we work with in Colombia, Mexico, and Nicaragua. 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 typically brew East African coffees. We have a feeling this is going to be a top take-home bag for us in the roasting room over the next few months.
