    So,
    We're all big cigar guys, and (most) all of us are big on spirits, but what are your favorite coffees?
    For me, I like Cubita Dark Roast, Tatuaje (Red is my favorite), Cafe Fumar (my boss' line of coffee that's paired to go with cigars), and Black Dog. Killer Beans is also really good stuff, but I haven't had it in a while.

    Tatuaje (I have the sampler at my house right now):

    and Cafe Fumar:

    I mostly drink the Red line of Tatuaje coffee, but there is also a black line, a white line, and a brown line (like the sticks). They're made to go with the corresponding cigars, which is way cool.
    Cafe Fumar has blends paired to go with different cigars -- a seco blend, a volado blend, a ligero blend, a maduro blend, and an espresso blend. I like ligero and espresso the best.

    So what coffees are you drinking?

    I personally buy all my green beans from Sweet Marias and roast them myself.

    I usually prefer beans from Ethiopia. Our own Black Dog is the guy who got me into roasting my own. If you don't have time to roast your own...you have to try Brian's at Black Dog. Wonderful.

    I have a coffee house nearby that roast their own and I usually get what ever has just been roasted. I love going in there when he is roasting beans.

    I "discovered" Green Mountain Coffee Roasters about ten years ago. I am not that into flavored coffee, but I highly recommend their Rainforest Nut.

    Wow, that's dedication! I didn't even know you could do that at home. Checked out their website and it's great. ( http://www.sweetmarias.com ) Going to have to give this "home roasting" thing a try.

    Don't know if New Havana has it, but Silo Cigars does:

    Note that they also have Illusione coffee, which I would like to try.

    Green Mountain Costa Rican or Mexican Blend, Sumatran as back up.
    I like Jamaican Blue Mountain when I can find it.

    Usually a medium roast that I grind a little on the fine side...

    One of these days I'm gonna try some Black Dog or Tatuaje coffee - I keep hearing good things.

    I've really gotten in to the Yerba Mate teas. Full of caffiene, and a great fresh flavor.

    Yerba Mate? I'll have to try that.

    I usually grab some loose leaf silver needle white tea from Wegmans & use a bit of clover honey... but only with my pinky high in the air.

    It's the stuff the Gauchos in Uraguay and Boliva drink. You can buy it in tea bags, but it is traditionaly steeped as a loose leaf tea. And then consumed through a "straw" with a screen on the bottom. The traditional cup is the shell of a native gourd. And is consumed in a social setting by passing the gourd from one person to the next. It has a ton of antioxidents and really puts some pep in your step.
