    Cigars and coffee are great, unfortunately I don't have the time or place to enjoy a cigar nearly often enough these days. Cigars led me to pipes, which became a bigger hobby than cigars once were. A pipe and tea is also a good pair. You have inspired me to dig through the humidor for something good to end this week.

    Get a Bodum press pot, the best choice in my opinion.

    As far as coffee I still do the old fashioned stove top esspresso w/a Bialetti stainless and then whip up a cafe cubano. Enjoy with the stogie from the day before. Usually get my coffee from Caracolillo Coffee Mill in Tampa http://www.ccmcoffee.com/ . Great products and phenominal service.


    Even though AFs are a favorite I have to say that the maduro I like the most is the Ashton Eclipse VSG. This is one really GREAT smoke. Full bodied, strong flavor, easy draw and actually gave me a head rush!

    Hasta,

    mmmmmmm, ashtons! Also, in love with anything Graycliff but, especially the Emeralds.

    As much as I love my coffee, how about cigars and whisky? Match made in heaven if you ask me

    been enjoying cigars for years, and pipes nearLy as long (i too followed the natural progression..."to save money" hahaha yeah that worked out well!!

    limited editions aside, my favorite morning cigar is an El Rey Del Mundo Choix Supreme (via Habanos SA) and my favorite Evening cigar is a Ramon Allones Double Corona. tho I usually have to sit down smoking one of them - STRONG!

    so many amazing cigars available from not just Cuba, but Nicaragua (Padrons are among my favorites - and their Anniversarios rival nearly any high end cuban stick there is IMO) Hoyos and Punch from Hunduras, Dominicans (the Fuente Hemingway line and of course the Opus dominican puros speak for themselves) and the list goes on and on. also so many new brands I've never tried (I haven't bought a new cigar in at least 8+ years or so, just have em aging)

    as for coffee, I fell into that rabbit hole too. ordering greenbeans from sweetmarias.com and roasting my own, using vacuum brewers etc. alas I was a coffee fiend and after some insane anxiety and mood swings etc I decided to give of the heavy duty coffee drinking. will occasionally have a cup here and there... mostly out of the house.

    love loose leaf teas.

    now, for me, the best beverage mix with cigars is scotch... except in the morning, most days lol and a little taste of chocolate (dark or milk) with a decent cigar is a really nice match too!

    My go to list for cigars includes:
    AF Hemingway Signature, natural and Maduro
    Ashton VSG
    Ashton ESG
    Ashton Cabinet
    AF 858 Maduro
    AF Anejo!!!!!!!!
    Anything Padron
    La Aroma de Cuba

    Also, in terms of coffee grinders, what do you recommend is a good brand that won't break after a couple of uses?

    People, especially coffee fiends will scoff at this, but buy a cheap whirly grinder if you are only going to do FP. IMO, the only time you really want to spend some coin on a good grinder is if you have the money to do so, or are considering getting into espresso.

    I scoff at that and fart in your direction. Going from a Krupps whirly grinder to a PITA retro KitchenAid burr grinder made a quantum leap taste improvement in cheap drip machine.
