Organic Panama Boquete Casa Ruiz
|Roaster Location:||Healdsburg, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Boquete growing district, western Panama|
|Review Date:||August 2005|
Blind Assessment: Intense, rather acidy aroma with vanilla-toned chocolate and fruit notes. In the cup the acidity was either sweet and lushly lively (Ken) or a touch too soft (co-cupper Rodger Owen), the flavor a bit too simple (Rodger) or intriguing in its simultaneous sensory allusions to wine and chocolate (Ken).
Notes: Certified organically grown on Finca San Cristobal, mostly from trees of the old and respected typica variety of arabica. Flying Goat Coffee is a leading boutique retail/wholesale roaster located in the wine country of northern California. Visit
Who Should Drink It: Those who find contradiction more interesting than harmony.
