Ruby was first developed by Ninety Plus by accident in a processing experiment gone wrong in Ethiopia in 2015. The coffee processed yielded a high count of exceptionally red seeds, which, when tasted separate, had an incredible red wine and red fruit intensity.
We repeated the process in Panama, and a resulting batch called Perci Red scored 97 points on Coffee Review. When World Champion George Koustoumpardis joined Ninety Plus in 2015, Joseph invited George to work with him to take this process to a different level, and Ruby was born. The Ruby name is derived from the uniform and deep burgundy color of the unroasted coffee seeds. Ruby is the most intense coffee on the Ninety Plus menu. Ruby is enjoyed in honor of George and his wife, Konstantina, who have lived and worked as core members of Panama’s Ninety Plus Estates team since 2017.

Please be aware that there might be import fees, taxes, and/or additional documentation required to import the goods according to each country’s regulations. You, the consumer, are responsible for those charges entirely.
We are shipping our goods using essential exporting documents, such as FDA-Prior Notice, Phytosanitary Certificate, ICO Certificate of Origin, and Certificate of Origin.

By design, the Ikawa roaster is a fluid bed roaster, which means simply that it is roasting using hot air. This, though, has its limitations, as it depends on the altitude, relative humidity, temperature, and density of the air. The profiles we are sharing below with you have been developed in an environment with 85% relative humidity, at 1,400 meters above sea level, with temperatures between 20°C and 25°C.
