Description

The Maunier Estate is 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 Ruíz family has worked in the Boquete coffee industry for generations, dating back to the early years of the 20th century.

The original family coffee, flower, and vegetable farm 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 purchasing the Maunier Estate in the late 1980s from the same man who sold them their very first 2kg coffee roaster.

After yielding its first exportable harvest of 250 bags in 1992, the Maunier Estate has expanded and grown to a 3000-bag-per-year operation, and shares profits with its regional neighbours. The Ruíz family are among the founding donors of the Ngabere literacy program, named for the indigenous population called the Ngabe, who work on the estate during the harvest.

Panama, a small strip of land that unites North and South America, is located 9 degrees north of the Equator.

Coffee from Panama was historically under-rated and overlooked, but not any longer. That perception has been corrected in recent years with the Best of Panama competition held each year, attracting global competition for the best lots and garnering spectacular prices. The Gesha/Geisha cultivar produced in some small coffee estates has also garnered heaps of attention for its unique floral cup character.

Chiriqui – meaning the Valley of the Moon is one of the most productive provinces in Panama because of its climate and fertile soil. Cattle activities, horse raising, flower growing, trout fishing, banana plantations, and the long-established production of vegetables and coffee take place in Chiriqui, the breadbasket of Panama.
