May brings us our very first Panamanian coffee. We're excited to offer this fantastic coffee from the Ruiz family. Their 3rd generation farm in the Boquete district of Chiriqui is currently managed by brother and sister team Plinio and Maria Ruiz.
We're roasting this coffee to a medium roast. There are notes of brown sugar, a syrupy body and a hint of orange.
The Ruiz family continues to not only be involved in consistently growing great coffee, they are actively involved in local literacy, empowerment and professional development initiatives. They have also helped build a model program to help the indigenous Ngäbe people obtain organic certification for coffee grown on their land; in fact over three hundred independent, small-scale family farms partner with Casa Ruiz to process and market their coffee.
