Kafie Trading Company, LLC to be the exclusive distributor of Tabacos San Jeronimo The owner of Kafie Trading Company has reached a distribution agreement with Oscar Orlando Ferrera, the proprietor of Tabacos San Jeronimo. Dr. Gaby Kafie is excited to have discovered in his travels to his country of birth, Honduras a brand of cigars that has been in existence for decades in the Central America premium cigar market.
Tabacalera San Jeronimo is an artisanal cigar manufacturer located in Danli, Honduras. Oscar, the owner takes great pride in being able to keep his brand of cigars alive for well over 20 years. The brand has roots dating back to the years 1940 – 1960 in the San Jeronimo valley near Copan, Honduras where the Mayan ruins are located. The San Jeronimo region offers tobacco that is known for its texture, flavor, and aroma.
The brand will make its debut in the United States prior to the 2016 IPCPR. As with all premium cigars offered by Kafie Trading Company, LLC, the company stands behind the product guaranteeing quality and consistency of the blends.
Offerings under the Tabacos San Jeronimo brand will include three blends…. a Honduras Habano natural, Ecuador Connecticut, and a Honduras Habano maduro. Vitolas include robusto 5×50, toro 6×52, torpedo 6 1/8 52, churchill 7×48, and gordo 6×60. The cigars are well balanced, flavorful, and medium to full bodied.
“What excites me the most about Tabacos San Jeronimo is that they are a piece of Honduran history. Our family has deep roots and Honduras and it is our great honor to be able to represent this fine artisanal brand of cigars to the U.S. market. We hope it will be well received.” States Dr. Kafie.
