Café Ruiz de Panama Boquete Reviews
Clear explanation of coffee plantations Apr 30, 2009
The first thing of the tour was going to the coffee plantation where it all starts. The guide of Café Ruiz explains you everything in details about the plantations, the plants, the beans and everything you want to know. The tour is in English, so very good and easy to understand.
After the plantation you continue to the factory where they dry the beans and how they select them etcetera. This was also very interesting. He told us how the majority of the beans will be shipped all over the world.
The fewer beans that stay in Panama, got roasted by themselves at the location where also their shop is situated a little bit outside Boquete. So we went back here in the end of the tour. He explained us about different kinds of roasting. So you get stronger or lighter coffee.
Later in the shop there was a special corner where we could taste all the four different kind they produce.
I can highly recommend this Café Ruiz for doing a tour there. They are very, very informative and very helpful with questions.
