This is a distinctly traditional Panamanian coffee from a small family farm in Chiriqui, Panama. The growers in Boquete are dedicated to the preservation of traditional, organic growing methods which yield distinct, high quality coffee beans with complex flavors and enchanting aromas. Operating under the auspices of Casa Ruiz, your Panama Boquete Classico has contributed greatly to the local community with socially progressive, economically sustainable, and ecologically friendly farming methods. Three generations have dedicated their lives to natural-system growing methods, producing the finest Central American coffee beans on the market.
What was once a single farm is now a family owned & operated coffee crafting enterprise. Over three-hundred small-scale family farms partner with Casa Ruiz to process, roast, and market their coffee. The headquarters, located in the Boquete Valley at the skirts of the Baru Volcano, occupies Western Panama. The Ruiz Family is dedicated to cultivating the most consistently flavorful coffee possible, to maintaining a healthy natural environment, and to the sustainability of the farms and the region.
This new arrival is bright, crisp and lively with a velvety mouth-feel and subtle, slowly-evolving flavor complexity. The cup has well-rounded, fresh lemon start with hints of milk chocolate in the body and cocoa features that linger through the finish. Sophisticated nuances and honey-like aromas make this well-balanced, smooth coffee an ideal varietal for the coffee connoisseur and the uninitiated alike.
