I was reading a fact the other day that in the U.S., people who drink coffee normally consume over 1,000 cups every year. 1,000 + cups. To say that’s a lot would be quite the understatement. Now, seeing as one of the main reasons we smoke cigars is due to the flavor, the fact that a growing number of cigar smokers are running to their local tobacco shop to buy and smoke cigars that feature coffee tasting notes shouldn’t surprise anyone.
There are technically two types of cigars that feature coffee-based flavors:
- Premium hand rolled cigars that give hints or tasting notes of coffee
- Coffee-infused cigars that produce bold, coffee-based flavors
Since every cigar smoker has their own personal taste preference, I’m not going to steer you in a given direction, that’s on you to decide what you enjoy and what you don’t.
But, if you’re interested in exploring the delicious world of cigars with coffee tasting notes, we’ve decided to spotlight some of Cigar World’s most prominent hand rolled cigars and coffee-infused cigars.
What’s the difference between coffee-infused cigars and cigars with coffee tasting notes?
An important thing to understand is, there’s a huge difference. Not only in how the cigar is made, but in the taste characteristics as well.
There are premium cigars that feature coffee tasting notes, but think of these like tasting notes found in a beverage. They’re subtle, not necessarily tasting exactly like a dark roast, a blond roast or an espresso. But instead, they embody that flavor profile and give hints of those flavors with every puff.
On the flipside, there are coffee-infused cigars. These have coffee flavoring incorporated into a premium hand-rolled blend to taste exactly like whatever roast the company is going for. These flavors can be focused on black coffee, coffee with cream, or even a latte or espresso, really anything that you can imagine.
Even though a lot of cigar aficionados may tend to snicker at flavored or infused cigars, they really are great for beginners, and can even offer the most seasoned cigar smoker a pleasant and memorable experience.
