Nestled within the lush landscapes of Panama, Finca La Vanguardia stands as a cherished family legacy, owned by the Ruiz Family since 1981. Today, the farm thrives under the attentive management of Plinio Ruiz, who meticulously oversees every facet of operations, from harvesting to processing. Embracing a diverse array of varieties including Caturra, Catuai, and Pacamara, the farm boasts a dedicated drying area where each harvest undergoes traditional natural processing methods, basking in the sun on patios or African drying beds.

Drawing upon over four generations of coffee processing expertise, the Ruiz Family's Vanguardia Ruiz methods have garnered widespread acclaim, attracting fellow farmers seeking to refine their own crops. With a deep reverence for their legacy, we proudly offer the fruits of their labor as limited edition, one-of-a-kind coffees, a testament to the profound craftsmanship and heritage that defines Finca La Vanguardia. Amidst the fervor for Panamanian gesha varieties, the discovery of more traditional coffees here is a refreshing revelation.
