This is a discussion on Cigars And Coffee within the General Cigar Discussion forums, part of the The Cigar Lounges at Puff category; Just curious what cigars you guys smoke with your coffee. i like just regular coffee with a french vanilla creamer. ...
I like my coffee black, regardless of if im smoking. Last coffee smoke pair i did i had a san lotano oval maduro with it. But in terms of flavor profile it just has to be full enough to keep up with the black coffee
I love cigars and coffee. Usually black, but sometimes with cream. I tend to not think too hard about pairings but I've noticed the only time I get in trouble is with a strong flavored drink and a milder cigar. The opposite seems fine to me.
I almost always drink my coffee black...no cream and no sugar. The only time I do otherwise is on the weekends when I use my moka pots to make Cuban coffee. It's very strong and very sweet, but if you like Cuban cofffee, those cheap little pots do an amazing job.

My pallet is as yet not refined enough to really pair a cigar with anything. That being said, with something strongly flavored like coffee, I tend to go with a maduro. Someone else mentioned one of my favs, the Carlos Torano 50 Year Exodus, that's a beautiful stick with coffee. I've also been working through my box of Nica Libres, usually with a cup of cold-brewed iced coffee in the morning.
I also like my coffee black, no cream, no sugar, and definately no flavorings.
I discovered a Thai Spiced Mocha blend that pairs beautifully with most any maduro stick. I typically drink my coffee sans cream and sugar, and I've yet to meet a cigar that didn't smoke well with coffee (aside from that pineapple Whiteowl )
