Sadly, that isn't true . . . hand-rolled, or machine-made?

Long filler, short filler. From Cuba (I'm lucky, I live in Europe), the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Brazil, Honduras ...

Well, for me,  not having a tobacco habit, they're all pretty nasty (at least once lit. Love the smell of a good unlit cigar). So a cigar is always a cigar.

I did your survey, will you also post your paper and grade so we can critique these as well?  Many, if not most of us, on this list have multiple graduate/ post grad degrees.   :)    

BYW, an oily skinned maduro is an excellent pairing with a ristretto.

Well let's put it in the context of Freud's era.  I don't think they had machine-made cigars back then ...

Did you remember Saturday Night Live's skit on Anna Freud (Laraine Newman), as a young teenager speaking with her father, Sigmund (Dan Aykroyd) about her dream?  Click here.

Yes, sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, and a dream is just a dream . . . ;^)

Thanks for the link.  I never saw that skit.     "Bowls of fruit in their laps; trains through tunnels. "  What a riot.

OK, did the survey, I agree, VERY poor, complete lack of understanding of coffee and coffee culture. Not enough answers to choose from and no place to tell the survey what the right answer is.
