MILAN – Ziegler & Favilli announced on June 1st of this year their collaboration. The new line of Coffee & Cigars is the creative result of Ziegler, who holds much experience in non-traditional & traditional avenues of premium cigars. Ziegler & Favilli present a 21+ coffee, which includes 227 grams (ólb) of whole bean coffee & 10 cigars, blended & selected to pair with one another.
The duo is presented in environmentally friendly, collectable Enviro-Tubes where the cigars are nestled in loose coffee. The line is set to release twice per year in limited numbers at the Summer & Winter solstices. The first release, named “Come Around Friends, Enjoy!” (• C •) celebrates the Summer Solstice & is shipping as early as the beginning of August in Canada & in the USA.
The Coffee & Cigars line, considered a perfect pairing by many, celebrates the harmony between coffee & tobacco, their respective regions of growth & the agricultural results which blend so well. The freshly roasted coffee is sealed with well-aged tobacco leaves from the releases blend. This is timed around product packaging due to fresh roasted coffee being its best after roasting.
The cigars rest in a specialty cedar outfit, which is packed with the pairing coffee & kept in a specific environment where the cigars are influenced by the ambiance, aromas & oils of the whole bean coffee.
Fabien Zielger states, “I am very excited to be bring this product to market! We have introduced an unconventional style where the very typical Coffee & Cigars pairing is not-so-typical, & traditional products have a not-so-traditional spin. Even the standard use of a name & slogan is trumped by a conversation starter rather than a title. The coffee & cigars released for this Summer solstice are a call to action to those we have friendships with & those new friendships we look forward to. So, ‘Come Around Friends, Enjoy!’, and lets celebrate Nicaragua’s best: Coffee & Cigars!”
Jared Michaeli, President & Co-founder of Favilli states, “This line makes so much sense, & traditional products with a not-so-traditional approach is what makes this exciting! One wouldn’t expect anything less from Fabien, & we are simply honored to be his partner in creating this collective. ‘• C •’ is the first of many in the hunt for the world’s unique tobaccos & coffees. The project takes cigar making beyond perfect pairings & gets coffee partners deeply involved in establishing cigar blends, which highlights Nicaragua’s agriculture more precisely as the two marry during their processes. The products & approach are authentically different & highlight the very best pairing: Coffee & Cigars.”
