Since 1920 the Ruiz family has been growing and processing some of the finest coffee Panama has to offer. For three generations the Ruiz family has transformed what used to be a single-family farm into a specialty enterprise that also processes, packages and roasts.
Over the years, Casa Ruiz has earned a reputation for quality, and consistency. They have remained on the cutting edge of processing techniques and packaging solutions. The farm employs a permanent staff of 74 workers that balloons to nearly 900 during their harvest. Thanks to their strict, high standards, only the ripest, red cherries are picked, processed, and sorted by grow method, altitude, varietal, and bean size. In their own words, Casa Ruiz is “dedicated to the art of producing high-end quality coffee from Boquete by being good stewards of what has been entrusted to us – our environment and its resources.”
The passion of the Ruiz family is matched by our master roasters passion for applying the unique roast profile to this coffee, which brings out its flavor characteristics and makes this coffee beautiful. This coffee is roasted to a Medium-Dark profile which brings out hints of chocolate and nuts, for a rich and smooth experience anytime of the day. Enjoy!
