Coffee


Since the end of the 19th century the family of Jose Ruiz has focused on coffee production in the area of Boquete-Panama. Several generations devotedtheirlife togrowingoftraditional coffee speciesby the „shade tree growing method“ which allows the coffee bushes to grow in their natural environment, in harmony with other plants and animals. Although this method does not enable production in such quantities as a monoculture method (creating plantations through cutting trees, growing high-productive hybrid varieties), it helps to preserve the ecological richness of this farm. CAFE RUIZ is a registered trade mark of the Casa Ruiz, SA Company, representing thehigh-endquality roastedcoffeeaccordingtointernational standards. Casa Ruiz was the first producer of Panama coffee to obtain the ISO 9001 Quality System Certification in 2000 and ISO 14001 EnvironmentalCertificationin2004.Agroupoflocalsworkshardtoensure the specified quality parameters. The Casa Ruiz Company recognizes the key role ofthese people in achieving its goals, and therefore supports their educationalandself-realisationefforts.Theplantationownersarenotonly motivated by the prospect of income, they also care about social needs of people standing behind their success. The combination of eco-friendly techniques with the ISO Quality System Management and Environmental Management enables them to produce top-quality coffee.

The coffee beans are mixed, roasted in two different ways (so-called dark and very dark roasting) and then mixed again. The result is a coffee with brisk acidity and soft, syrup-like taste with a hint of chocolate flavour, with marks of bittersweet tones in your mouth. In the pictures on the wall you see the enviroment of Boquete, coffee tree plantations, coffee beans maturation, harvesting, processing and Mr. Ruiz himself. You  can watch the coffee bean from its birth, the places it  had seen and the people it had met before it ended up in your cup.
