    I know with cooking if you put a vanilla bean in powdered sugar for about six months the sugar picks up the flavors. I'm thinking you unless you acutaly get some oils to rub off on the cigar it will take a very long time.

    Do you think Bill Cliton was trying to infuse cigars?

    Heh, a friend of mine has an obsession with Natalie Portman and also happens to smoke cigars. I might have to mention this thread to him.

    I've heard of leaving a glass with a spirit in the humidor, but not coffee.
    I am very interested in seeing how this turns out being that I'm a coffee addict!!!
    I'm Cuban and live in Miami. So, I mostly enjoy my cigars with a cuban coffee.

    you may want to try the coffee thing with different wrappers and types of cigars.for example infusing coffee might work better with a more mild flavor like one with a connecticut wrapper than with a maduro

    Actually yes, I have 7-8 cigars in completely covered in 2 types of coffee for a total of 16 smokes.. One is hazelnut and the other is a very full flavored espresso roast. I left all the cigars out in the air for about 36 hours before they went in the coffee. The coffee feels really moist, so I let it air for a while too. I also put a small bag of heartfelt beads to keep it form getting too moist. I have not started any with liquor yet, I would have but we drank vodka this weekend, so Next time We drink rum, or burbon i'll do some of those too. I'll check on em often, but I want them to sit in the coffee for at least a month, maybe 2.

    I hope this works out. It would be cool if it does. I have a bunch of fake Cubans that could use the help. =0)

    Keep us posted, Dave.
    The end of a good smoke is a little saddening. In some regard, it's a bit like losing a best friend who had time to sit and listen.

    Has anyone tried this yet? Does it actually work? I have some cheap smokes that need help, but I hate to waste good coffee on a bad smoke.

    I SHOULD HAVE UPDATED THIS THREAD A WHILE AGO

    I let several sticks sit in a couple of different types of coffee for a couple of months. All they got was dusty. The only noticable coffee flavor they had was from the dust on the outside. I'm done trying, and with out good results. Yardgars are yardgars, let them serve thier purpose as is.

    I took some Fohibas i recieved and put them in a cedar box that had been seasoned with NAVAN ( a Grand Manier vanilla Cognac) It has only been 2 months, but they are fairly dry to the touch, still squeezable and very aromatic. Lets see what happens!

    Hey dpricenator, so you didn't actually infuse the cigars with coffee, did you at least infuse the coffee with cigars??? How was that?
