Thread: Cigars and coffee....OH YEAH

  1. #11
    Kyle,

    I am glad you asked, I have quite a few suggestions as I too like to keep this hobby as economical as possible while not smoking dog turds.

    Here's a quick list...

    Arturo Fuente Cuban Corona's in both natural and maduro
    Arturo Fuente 858 Maduro's or Candela's if you friend likes a mild to medium cigar
    Padron #5000 or any cigar really from the standard Padron line
    La Aroma de Cuba Corona's or Belicoso's

    Cigars has been a weakness of mine, lately -

Any suggestions?
    JR's cigars (online) has a good selection of cheapie (seconds / their own brand) that can be pretty decent at a reasonable price. My godfather smokes these on a daily basis and I have had a few of those over the years and they are a good bang for the buck.

    If you like maduros, I have found Belisco's and Bolivar to be good and El Rey Del Mundo to be exceptional.

    I recently picked up a couple of Rocky Patel's but have not had a chance to smoke them yet.

    Easy: Illusione Chuchillos Cubanos
    I like the 4.5" x 46 size. They sell in packs of 5 for under $20.
    The best budget smoke I have encountered.

    Cigars and coffee are a match made in heaven. I get my coffee in 5 lb. bags from coffeebeandirect.com and buy something that's medium acidity, full-bodied and usually city roast. I'm not too picky.

    Because I only drink coffee in the a.m. and smoke cigars on the deck when weather permits I usually have a medium bodied smoke. Cubans include Montecristo 2's or Partegas Shorts. Domestics include Padron maduro's, some Fuente products -I'm down to my last few Hemingway maduros- or whatever looks good in the humidor.

    I enjoy a cigar and a coffee, a perfect pair.

    You'll never have to pay for fresh coffee and shipping fees again, plus green coffee is half the price. They even start you off with 8 lbs to experiment with.
    Don't do cigars, but the roaster would have been my next gadget if you hadn't made me buy that sous vide thingy

    AAAHHH YES, cigars and coffee. AF's have been a favorite for many years. After a hard day of grinding blades there is nothing better that hitting the hot tub with an AF and Remy Martin VSOP.

    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,

    PZ
