About this coffee
This coffee comes from Casa Ruíz, a family that has worked in the Boquete coffee industry for generations, dating back to the early years of the 20th century; A family owned estate located near the town of Boquete between Volcan Buru National Park and La Amistad International Park within the province of Chiriquí, Panama. The original family coffee was destroyed by flooding in Boquete in 1970, and the family business was redirected towards roasting and exporting.
However, opportunities for farm ownership starting in the late 1970s were too good to pass up, and the Ruíz family reinvested in land, eventually evolving into a successful regional brand that includes roasted coffee sold to the consumer market in Panama.
The Ruíz family are among the founding donors of the Ngäbere literacy program, named for the indigenous population Guaymi, who call themselves the Ngäbe. Many of their population work on the estate during the harvest, and in some instances this may constitute their only source of income. The literacy program aims to preserve the Ngäbere culture by encouraging transliteration from spoken word to written in their native tongue.
