General Flavor Observations
Panama Jaguar Boquete - Casa Ruiz

This is a rich and syrupy-bodied coffee, with wonderful notes of dark chocolate and honey. Well balanced, with a golden, bright acidity, notes of orange, and hints of sweet brown sugar.

The aroma offers a warm nuttiness and floral notes of vanilla and caramel.
The mouth-feel is round and silky, with a sweet finish.

Whichever Roast Level you choose, you will be left with a smooth, well rounded, and satisfying experience.

Roast Level Profile Notes
Panama Jaguar Boquete - Casa Ruiz

My favorite roast level is Full City for the best balance between body, acidity, and roast, but Full City (+) is very nice as well.

We are always happy to accommodate any roast level you prefer.
The notes below illustrate how changing the roast will alter the profile:

City Roast (light roast)

High citrus notes, raw sugar, and roasted nuts will dominate the profile. The body will be lighter, but with soft and sweet hints of cocoa and a crisp finish.

Full City Roast (medium roast) - Preferred

This is my favorite roast level, and where I found that warm, yummy sweet-spot.
This roast offers a full body with a smooth, creamy mouth feel, with dark chocolate highlighted by notes of orange on the upper palate and sweet, brown sugar finish. Amazing!

Full City (+) Roast

Our Full City (+) roast will provide a more silky mouth-feel and syrupy body, with notes of dark chocolate and hints of raisins. The acidity will be tempered yet you will still find the notes of orange highlighting the smooth, sweet finish.

Vienna Roast

This roast will provide a deeper, and juicier body with darker, bittersweet chocolate notes and a kind of jammy sweetness. The finish will be more pointed and lingering.

French Roast

Not recommended.

Additional Information
Panama Jaguar Boquete - Casa Ruiz

Casa Ruiz is operated by brother and sister, Plinio and Maria Ruiz. Like their parents and grandparents before them, they are completely dedicated to growing top-quality varietals in the cool, natural shade canopy of the Boquete Mountains, and have earned a reputation for quality, and consistency.
The Panama Jaguar Boquete is grown from an assortment of arabica trees, including Pacamara, Geisha, Catuai, Typica, Yellow Bourbon and Maragogype.

You Need To Try This Coffee
The Panama Jaguar Boquete - Casa Ruiz is one of the best varieties I've tried yet from Storehouse Coffee.
As another reviewer noted, it's tough to pick my favorite between this and the Costa Rican, so if you like that one you'll love this coffee too.

Im-PRESS-ive !!!
I love Central American coffees from Storehouse, so I wanted to give this Panama Jaguar Boquete a try, and was definitely not disappointed. It is a robust, rich brew - filling the room with aroma, and filling the cup with flavor. I typically use the pour-over method for my morning brew, but when I decided to take it to the French press.......WOW! This is a great coffee any way you brew it, but the Jaguar really roars when pressed.

Loved this at the full city plus roast level. Description was spot on and worked well as a pour over or espresso! Try it!

Thanks for the recommendation
I can't decide which I like better - the Costa Rican or the Panamanian.
Both are excellent with the lighter roast, too.

Thanks for the recommendation of the beans from Panama!

Coffee nut
I followed Joe’ advice and he succeeded in helping me finally find a Central American coffee I like.
I’m a staunch full body dark roast Indonesian and African coffee guy without the citrus and fruity undertones.
This Panamanian coffee is outstanding with noticeable chocolate nuance. I like the full city plus roast level that leaves a nice oily sheen.

Can’t go wrong with this one folks!
