IPCPR 2017: Twin Engine Coffee

IPCPR 2017: Twin Engine Coffee

We dropped by the Twin Engine Coffee booth at IPCPR 2017 just in time to prevent an almost certain coma. As we raised our caffeine levels Colin Ganley told us about developments in the Nicaraguan coffee world. But also in some news about coffee from Cuba. One of those developments is a K-Cup assembly line in their facility in Nicaragua.

Another really interesting thing for the coffee geeks is they’ve started sun drying the coffee fruit and have packaged them …

The Atmosphere in my Local B&M is Changing

The Atmosphere in my Local B&M is Changing

When it comes to Cigar Smoking, there is one aspect of the pastime that has always left me fascinated – the social aspect. In the relatively short time that I’ve been visiting cigar shops, I’ve met people from all walks of life.

IPCPR 2017: Crowned Heads

We caught up with a slightly tired Jon Huber in the cozy Crowned Heads booth nearing the end of day two at IPCPR this year. He shows us the popular new Four Kicks Maduro, which is the same blend as the original Four Kicks, except with a Connecticut Habano wrapper. Jon mentions another extension to Four Kicks, called Black Belt Buckle, which is a shop exclusive to clarify the difference. Black Belt Buckle has a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, Four Kicks …

IPCPR 2017: CLE

We got off to a great start with Christian Eiroa in the CLE booth at IPCPR 2017 when I reminded him of an advertising campaign he’d rather forget. Moving on, we take a look at the new Eiroa The First 20 Years Colorado, a cigar Christian has wanted to make his entire career thus far. Named for the color of the wrapper leaf, which was a key factor in the cigar’s production, comes in four sizes, all of them box …
