The Art Deco Coffee Break measures 4 1/2 x 50. There are just two other sizes in the Art Deco line: the 5 1/2 x 54 Robusto Grande and the 6 x 60 Gran Toro. The cigar's composition is impressive and complex, to say the least. The filler is a blend of 60 percent Nicaraguan Corojo '99 and 40 percent Dominican San Vicente tobaccos. The cigar sports a dual binder of Dominican Criollo '98 and Nicaraguan Habano '00 tobaccos. A Nicaraguan Corojo '06 wrapper coats the exterior, and a triple cap tops things off. The cap is said to give the cigar some extra richness in its flavor. The Art Deco is listed as being medium-bodied in strength.

The cigar itself looks good, but it's hard to avoid its flashy band. It's an eye-catcher, and it definitely gives the cigar a Miami feel. The band features the Art Deco name in large gold lettering, and it's red, teal, and black colors are very stylish. The cigar's wrapper is dark, oily, and slightly red. A few small veins are visible, but no other imperfections are present. It appears to be packed well, as there are no soft spots. The triple cap is very neat. Both the pre-light aroma and cold taste are spicy.

There are no real issues in the burn department. The ash is white and solid. The draw? Just right. One touch-up is necessary, but that is it. Yet another good job by Don Pepin.

The flavor is not bad at all, but it is not too complex. Mellow spice kicks things off, and it dominates the first third. As I wait for something new to kick in, some rich coffee appears and leaves me craving for a warm cup. It seems like the whole Coffee Break moniker fits this one perfectly. The final third offers up some earthy notes, as well as a bit of sweetness. The cigar is very smooth overall, and definitely medium-bodied.

Is the Art Deco Coffee Break worthy of a purchase? Sure it is. It is a quality cigar with a good burn and solid construction. Complexity may be lacking a bit, but it is still enjoyable. It's a cigar that can be enjoyed at any time of the day, especially during a coffee break or early in the morning. The cigar comes in stylish tins of 21, and a single goes for just under $7.

The Nestor Miranda Art Deco Coffee Break earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.
