Producer Profile: Casa Ruiz is one of the most esteemed farms and producers of coffee in Panama. For nearly 100 years, the Ruiz family has been growing and processing coffee. Today, the Ruiz family still oversees the operation of their farms, mills and roasterie. In 2001, Casa Ruiz won the best coffee in the world award — the first Panama coffee producer to do so.
Casa Ruiz creates their Floreal blend using the coffee from many small farms from the Boquete region.
The Boquete Valley is one of the world’s most ideal places to grow coffee. During part of the year, the wind blows mist off the Caribbean into the Boquete Valley; at other times, torrential rains come off the Pacific. These conditions create a perfect environment for producing exquisite coffee.
Grind your coffee as close to brewing as possible. Match the grind of coffee to your brewing method. We recommend using 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for 6 ounces of water. Adjust the amount of water or coffee to achieve your desired strength.
