The name of this coffee is a story of myths and legends.

Matambo was a giant, a valiant warrior in the region but an enemy of the Michués (a native pre-Hispanic tribe). Mirthayú, who was the queen of the Michués was said to be so beautiful that when Matambo came face-to-face with her in combat he immediately fell in love and they formed a loving relationship. The people of the Michués did not agree with this relationship and Matambo was unfortunately killed in battle fighting for the love of his life.
